Developers begin work on LibreOffice for Android

InfoWorld - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 08:45

Two companies have started working on a full-featured version of the free office suite LibreOffice for Android. They hope to have a beta version available in March.

It's too soon to say what features will be included in the beta version, said Italo Vignoli, spokesman at the Document Foundation, which leads the development. A series of beta builds with increasing advanced functionality will then be released over time. The foundation didn't say when it expected LibreOffice for Android to become generally available.
