    I'm after software to let me create documents and spreadsheets and be able to share them across platforms.

    I think I've decided on quickoffice based on its compatibility with Google docs and I'm assuming that this will save memory as the free version is already on my device.

    I have a Desire running Froyo

    I'd be grateful to hear people's opinions and experiences.

    Cheers,

    frogzpawn.

    I think there are 3 candidates:

    Quick Office (the full version with editing capabilities).
    Used it before on Symbian devices (N97) but I don't like 2 apps with the same name (one simple viewer and a full one that doesn't replace the viewer).

    Office Suite, my favorite.

    Picsel Editor, a new one that works even with Bada, didn't try this one.

    Anyway, using Office Suites with capacitive screens is not as easy as with resistive screens.

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Cheers,
    :)

    Went for quickoffice in the end. It is a pain that it doesn't replace the viewer version and sits along side it, but otherwise it does the job I need it to and interfaces well. Limitations mean I'll do the bulk of setting up new sheets on the pc (no copy and paste that I can tell) but then it's much easier at a desktop anyway.

    I am using "Doccuments 2 Go", version 2.0 until they just released version 3.0 about a week ago. Very nice app, well done and I am a very heavy user.

    How do you deal with making formulas in the cells on Excel? I like Docs to Go as well. Also, formatting a word document does not seem as complete as I would like it to be. Your thoughts?

    Haha, I'm using this one.
    Easily the simplest, fastest, and (at the time of writing this review) the most functional office suite for Android. The ability to "tab" to a new paragraph location on my Transformer Prime's keyboard dock is wonderful! The constant updates and support for external keyboards are awesome!

    Personally, the 3 I think are the ones to try are the following:

    Documents To Go
    Office Suite Pro
    Quick Office

    I have the paid version of all 3 (thanks to Amazon Free App of the Day)

    The one I use the most is Documents To Go. Mostly because I have to view/edit Spreadsheet more than any other kind of document. This one is way better for basic and more advance spreadsheet data manipulation.

    Also viewing and editing MS Word Docs has been very reliable.

    I'm holding out for LibreOffice. From what I've read of developments, The Document Foundation are making some good headway into getting an Android port out there.
