    I am aware that Android ins't specific to business operations as of yet. But, I use GDocs which works great when grabbing and loading word documents, but does anyone have a suggestion as to which application I should use to edit & create Microsoft or OpenOffice documents? I don't have a problem buying an app, but, I just want to make sure I buy the right one. Keep in mind that I will have to edit pre-formatted word documents such as time sheets, purchase requests, etc and submit to my boss via the phone email.

    Thanks

    I don't have a suggestion, but a comment. All paid apps on the Android market come with a 24 hour refund policy. Try the apps, if they don't do what you need, then return and try another. I know this doesn't give you a specific app to try, but valuable info, none-the-less. Hope this helps!

    Try documents to go. The free version lets you view, the full version lets you edit.

    Thanks for the info!

    I heard that the paid apps can be returned within 24hrs, I just didn't want to go that route just because billing issues happen, and I didn't want to be stuck arguing the billing of an app that I returned. But, if I don't hear anything on an app, I will start shopping around. Either way, thanks for the reply!

    I am happy with Documents to Go (I have paid) it supports MS Office files up to 2007...

    I use it mostly for the Spreadsheet portion, and it does fine with formulas etc. I have a budget spreadsheet that I use to track some portions of my finances, and I can enter it on the road, or let the computer mount the SD card and edit it with Excel 2007.

    As mentioned, you have 24 hours to get a refund, and I have returned a few different programs and been credited appropriately.

    Thanks for the information. Still being new to Android, I want to make sure that once I edit a document with this program it can still be loaded onto google docs.

    I've used Documents to go on Palm/Blackberry and now Android. It's a great program and well worth the $10 or is it $15 now?

    I keep track of my work on 4 spreadsheets with quite complex formulas and it works great!

    The only issue I've ever had with it is sometimes when sending a file from to computer to the phone or phone to computer the layout of the spreadsheet will be a bit different. Just the the row/column sizes. You'll have to adjust it manually from one to the other.
