OpenOffice (or equivalent) for iPad

Postby AltonCruz » Fri Mar 27, 2020 1:34 pm

I have a new iPad mini4 that I hope to use as a substitute computer while traveling. Most of the documents on my PC are in Open Office Writer or Calc. I want to be able to open and edit them on the iPad, but there don't seem to be many apps that will let me do this. I hunted all over the App Store and all I could find was a reader app.

I found a version of Open Office that supposedly works within the browser, but when I tried it, it just led me around in an endless loop, never letting me create or open anything. And when I attempted to download the iOS version of Open Office from their site, it gave me a message that "your device doesn't allow downloads" or something like that. The link to a " mirror" wouldn't work, either.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

There is no version of OpenOffice for iOS. See OpenOffice for tablets for information on what is currently available.

I believe the best alternative today is leveraging "Collabora Office" which is in the IOS Appstore, and free of course. This is just a branded version of LibreOffice and allows you to view and edit any document format. ... 1440482071
