OpenOffice for iPhone

Are there any plans to write an iPhone app for a fully editable version of Open Office? I've installed OOReader on my phone, but I still must use a Microsoft Office product to do editing. Even if the Microsoft products are free, it still means I'm using two different platforms to get the work done; and they're not 100% compatible.

There are no plans to implement an office suite on a phone.

That's too bad. It looks like Open Office is going the same route as most other corporations, such as Microsoft: It reaches a point where it's not interested in giving its users what they really care about. Your curt & very impersonal reply, Villeroy, is about par with what we get back from companies who don't want to be bothered with us anymore.

AOO is developed by volunteers, not a corporation. If you need a version developed for the iPhone, then find developers who will volunteer to do it.

We volunteers on the Forum give of our time and expertise on a pro bono basis. In consequence we tend to be terse and to the point. The question posed has been answered already quite a number of times on the forum; a little searching would have found such replies.

The Guys who volunteer to help the millions users have been top tier all the way. This site would become a blog for nothing but criticism if they didn't handle themselves in the most professional way...Kudos!

Not being critical to the guy posting, just a point of view. Good luck to you, I have the same problem. I will post if I find something that is useable.

The Collabora Office was created on the codebase of the LibreOffice, and the LibreOffice was created on the codebase of the OpenOffice.

In my opinion a phone (a phone size device) is not the best tool to edit documents.

I have the same problem. I will post if I find something that is useable.

...just buy a Linux laptop. That is cheaper and better for editing documents than the iPhone. :D :bravo:

Agreed. However Apple's office suite was designed for use on a phone or tablet.

Office 700
Based on OpenOffice but not free, it will set you back $4 direct from the App Store.

I don't understand why anyone would even want to use a smartphone for word processing or spreadsheet editing. Doing that on a 14'' 640*480 px non-interlaced monitor (endearingly called a fish bowl :ouch: ) was bad enough. :crazy:

The Office 700 is the world's first porting of OpenOffice for iOS and it's powerful and complete office suite for OpenDocument. You can view, edit, insert and export office documents using full features of the OpenOffice. * Office 700 is a forked project from the Apache OpenOffice project. MCDVOICE
