SoftMaker Office for Android Now in Beta

It may have taken a couple years longer than SoftMaker planned, but one of the better mobile office suites is now in beta.

SoftMaker, a German developer who specializes in office apps, has been working to port their flagship app to Android (it’s also currently available for Windows, Linux, and Windows Mobile). Unlike some other Android office apps, SoftMaker Office is a  feature rich app with many of the abilities you might expect from MS Office, only running on your Android phone or tablet.

I’ve used SoftMaker Office for Windows CE, and it was an exceptionally capable app running on minimal hardware. I’m looking forward to trying it.

It’s in beta, and comes with Word, powerpoint, and spreadsheet apps. You will need Android v2.2 at a minimum in order to run the apps.
