Anyone using it on their phones? Are you able to open email attachments within it, edit them and send them back? Just wondering since it has been noted that it doesn't allow writing to local storage but works only with OneDrive.

Edit: Just watched Android Authority's review and am unimpressed. Hancom offers far more functionality than the office mobile apps.

At least with hancom you have the ability to insert and manipulate images.

I installed it on my Galaxy Note 2 but it seems that it cannot open files stored in the phone. It seems that we have to store the files in OneDrive first. Can anybody else confirm this? It seems to be inconvenience. Anybody tried OneDrive? Is Microsoft trying to make us use this service?

Confirmed. You have save files in OneDrive.

You can open email attachments, edit and send, but that is it. The 'back of storage options is sad. I do get why they do it, they have to make money since they are not charging for the app. It needs to support Dropbox or at least local storage.

So, basically it is no use unless I get OneDrive. If I do, will it be fully compatible with the Windows/Mac versions of Office?

You can get 10 GB of free OneDrive storage. I use it solely for backups of my documents and textbooks. Hancom blows Office for Android out of the water at current, and unless they update it to be able to work on files while offline I don't see it beating Hancom anytime soon.

Samsung's agreement with Hancom helps make the Pro series THE Android tablet to own.

I haven't tried all the functionality yet, but at least for now it appears M$ is also allowing 'office online' for free if you have any kind of microsoft account (xbox, onedrive, etc).

Go to office.com and you can use office online, appears to work fine in chrome browser with 'request desktop site' ticked. Obviously internet connection needed, might chew up a bit more bandwidth than office mobile but hopefully someone finds it useful.

It's not perfect, but it's solid, and FREE

Some of the graphics scaling is off, but not unusable.

Not that these devices are considered affordable, but open source software is, for everyone. It provides opportunities for new, and otherwise-hampered developers to hone their skills. Here's the kicker, though, it can (and sometimes does) keep commercial software developers on their toes, that is, if it doesn't provide them with usable code. My favorite part about it is that it's free of commercial interest, so far, so you don't have to worry about data-mining or time-wasting popups & notifications.

Not that this is open source, but OO is, as are the file formats. Every little nudge helps.
