CloudOn isn’t a word processing app in the traditional sense. Instead, CloudOn functions as a portal. It uses the Android tablet’s online capabilities to access the version of Microsoft Office owned by CloudOn. Once connected, the user can use CloudOn’s Word just like he would use a copy of of Word on his home computer.
Obviously, there are some shortcomings to this approach. Making a fully functioning version of Word fit into and perform on a tablet isn’t an easy task. The user interface may seem a bit clunky.
However, CloudOn does not cost anything thing to use. It integrates with popular cloud providers such as Dropbox. This allows the user to create a new Word document, design and edit it using Word’s user interface and save the document to his Dropbox account. Cloudon also interfaces with both Google Drive and Box.net.
The full-featured version of Word offers the opportunity to work with tools that may not be present with some of the native word processing apps. For instance, the user can track changes he makes in his Word document using the popular track changes feature. Other native word processing apps have failed to incorporate this feature.
Perhaps best of all, CloudOn does not cost anything to use. It is free!
Find the app online at the Google Play Store from this link on this page. The app isn’t available for Android phones so only tablet owners running either Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich should look for the app. It is a must have for the Android tablet owner!
