Is Libreoffice the best office app in Android?
 
Is Libreoffice the best application for such things as writing documents and presentations and spreadsheets in Androids list of apps?

Are there any other office apps from Linux there?

If you search the Google store for "Office," you will see several office-suite type choices.

I use something called Docs to Go ($5.00 or so), which I started using for work back when I had a Windows phone (this was before the iPhone even, six years ago or so), because I had to access Excel spreadsheets; it does MS Office formats.

I have stuck with it into my Android days because it works quite nicely on my Android, I know how to use it, and I prefer not to use Google Docs.

One of my LUG members says that he thinks Kingsoft Office is the best one out there right now.

Yeah, I like app. With the addition of a free office suite that fully supports the ODF format, the Android platform extends its reach even farther. I have used Open Office ever since it was available and also Office Libre. 90% of what I do is in ODF format.

As far as I know, LibreOffice on Android is a work in progress. I have it installed on my tablet and it is only a document viewer at this point. WPS (Kingsoft) Office is OK, had some issues with the AOSP keyboard with it though, mainly voice typing. Couldn't get Docs to Go to work for the life of me, and Google's QuickOffice was missing header and footer capability...

EDIT: If you can get KDE Plasma Active, I think you're golden as far as LibreOffice goes.
