    Can I use (i.e. read and edit) MS Word documents on my Android Tablet?

    If so, what's the best FREE app to do it?

    I'm a high school teacher, I have a couple of Denver tablets and I would love to use them in class more often.

    Sorry to keep bothering you guys with these questions but I'm terrible with computers.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kingsoft free can be downloaded for free from the app store.
    If you don't mind spending some money then go for office suite pro.
    Note that the free edition of officesuite pro doesn't allow for editing only viewing.

    I think the best one would be Polaris or King Soft Office. Those I have both on my Note.

    Just to add.I use Kingsoft but as my phone has limited ram/storage I rooted my phone so I can use Link2SD to freeze programs,among other things, that I don't use too often.

    HTH :)

    Thanks guys!

    I forgot to mention that I need an app that is small, simple and, above all, easy to use. Which one would you recommend? Any extra tips?

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
