      Hurray, they mention Android specifically.
      Oh wait... they didn't update play store, and the "nightly" build still crashes immediately when you try to open ANY document on ANY device.

      WTF is the matter with them? Half the population of the world has Android, and only around 0.0001% desktop Linux, yet their Android effort is less than half-assed. Are they TRYING to fail?

        Well, but how many people actually do use a full grown text processor (etc.) on Android? Usually android is installed on devices with very small screens and it would be quite painful to work with that. Besides, Android, at least as far as I know, only shares the kernel with linux (plus custom google / vendor patches), but the userland is very different.
        Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!

          Well huge tablets could be used with mouse+keyboard too. I think a full blown Android port is a good idea.

            Android users run Google's office by default. And typically Android users don't create content. More over, what fraction of the Android users ever need to open a document?

              How many people WOULD, if such a thing was actually available?

              Android is installed on ALL KINDS of devices. Not just phones.

              Besides, Android, at least as far as I know, only shares the kernel with linux (plus custom google / vendor patches), but the userland is very different.
              Yes, the userland IS very different, which is why libreoffice/docufoundation needs to get off their asses and make something usable.

                That google software you are referring to is wholly useless. I've looked at it, briefly, and discarded it.
                As for your question; MOST.

                    Well, that wholly useless software fits my needs so well I haven't touched an office suite in years.
