openoffice and libreoffice for android tablet or iPad?

Why is there no openoffice and libreoffice for android or iPad? Why have team of openoffice and libreoffice not made mobile app?

I'm sure there some members here who have android or iPad if so what do you use as office app?

It kinda strange Today there is no openoffice and libreoffice for the tablet or iPad.

But they have openoffice and libreoffice for Linux, Mac and Windows.

Designing an Office Suite to work on a tablet or smartphone is not a simple task. And, frankly, I would not want to compose a document using only a touch screen.

There is a LibreOffice viewer for Android and I understand that LO is working on a more robust smartphone/tablet application.

Probably the closest you can come to a full-featured word processor for a smartphone at this time is Docs to Go, which has been around for a decade or more. I've used it for years, because I used to have a business need to view *.xls files on my T-Mobile Dash running Windows CE.

I'm still using it now on my HTC One.
