OpenDocument Reader


OpenDocument Reader, formerly known as OpenOffice Document Reader, allows you to read your ODF documents wherever you are. In the bus on your way to school? No problem! With OpenDocument Reader you can read and search through your documents in a very clean and simple way. Available for Android and Google Drive.

OpenDocument Reader is...
  • simple
  • fast
  • clean
  • and well integrated!

“ODF” is the format used by office suites like OpenOffice and LibreOffice. Both text documents (.odt) and spreadsheets (.ods) are supported, including support for formatting and embedded images. Password-protected documents are no problem either.

For the time being, OpenDocument Reader does NOT support presentations (.odp files), nor does it support editing your documents. These features may or may not become available at some point in the future.

This app is open-source. We are not affiliated with OpenOffice, LibreOffice or similar.

  11. Japanese language has some tens of thousand characters.
    (Many Asian languages have also.)

    I heard that each letters of Japanese language are denoted by two or three bytes of UTF-8 encoding system.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8

    Up to now I could not read my ODF files by OpenOffice Document Reader.
    I think because OpenOffice Document Reader interpret one Japanese letter three byte code as three Ascii characters.

    Please fix this multibyte language problem of OpenOffice Document Reader. I will aprreciate your great work.

  12. final, we're currently looking into rewriting the app. Maybe this will fix your problem too. If it doesn't fix it simply comment here again. ;)

  13. Do you have any intentions of either continuing this project to include document editing and creation, or even porting LibreOffice to the Android platform? I want to ditch my laptop, and use only my android phone, mirroring via HDMI and using BT keyboard and mouse... BUT, I am a grad student, and no word processing app for Android is capable of APA format (hanging indents, page breaks, page headings and numbering, etc. Unless you know of one? acarya(dot)mjr(at)gmail(dot)com

  14. Alternatives to OpenOffice Document Reader are:
    - https://market.android.com/details?id=de.joergjahnke.documentviewer.android.free&feature=search_result
    - https://market.android.com/details?id=org.webodf&feature=search_result

    The latter is probably the better alternative.

    Let me know how you like them.

    Also, we're thinking about improving OpenOffice Document Reader. However, we're pretty busy (we're students, too)...
