Berlin, May 28, 2015 - LibreOffice, the best free office suite on the
desktop, is available on Android as a native application for viewing ODF
documents. The app can be installed from Google Play Store at Direct download of the APK and download
from other app stores will be made available at

LibreOffice Viewer also offers basic editing capabilities, like
modifying words in existing paragraphs and changing font styles such as
bold and italics.

Editing is still an experimental feature which has to be enabled
separately in the settings, and is not stable enough for mission
critical tasks. It will be enhanced to a fully fledged editing solution
in the future, with the help of our steadily growing developer
community. The editing features provided in the current release have
been developed thanks to donations to The Document Foundation.

Feedback and bug reports are very welcome, to help developers improve
the quality of the application on its way to a fully-fledged editor.
Users are invited to report problems, using the bug tracker and
attaching files that have triggered the issue at

LibreOffice Viewer is using the same engine as LibreOffice for Windows,
OS X and Linux. This, combined with a new front-end based on Firefox for
Android, reads documents similarly to LibreOffice on the desktop.

LibreOffice Viewer has been developed by Collabora and Igalia, backed by
Smoose, with contributions from Google Summer of Code students, together
with The Document Foundation and the LibreOffice community. SUSE has
provided a key foundation of cross platform support, and Mozilla
Corporation several core components.
