you sir are a god. i've been looking for something like this ever since i got my TF.

Good to see that basically Polaris is the best for word, which is what i use the most.

personally my only gripe against polaris is that it can't save in docx format which my school requires, but it also can't spell check if i'm typing from the TF keyboard, so i have to bring it into my windows PC anyway to review.

Very nicely done, easy to follow, thanks for doing that.

I also see that Polaris Office is best for me (when they fix the non-pasting bug)

thanks! I m trying to keep it updated. If users want me to test anything special then let me know! I plan to test the MS Equation object soon.

I really appreciate how ASUS included competitive apps instead of halfassed ones that we will never use.

I was wondering if you have yet connected the transformer to a projector/beamer and started a presentation with polaris office? Did this work well? Could you easily go a slide further?
I was also wondering if any of these apps had handwriting recognition in Word? I mean writing on the screen with a capacitive stylus and the writing being recognized and changed into a word script. This seems to work very well on Win7 tablets with Word so hopefully on Android too.
And Thank you so much for the fabulous comparison.

I have not done either but I wouldn't get my hopes up too much. If you do a search there are some threads out there about using a stylus with the TF and about programs that do work with it. So far I have not come across handwriting support in the office suites but maybe someone can prove me wrong!

Yep, Polaris Office is the best, but not yet good. I hate how is managed the showing of the soft keyboard, writing text, and the impossibility of correct selected text.
This is only an example.
Hope this app will be improved soon...

I know ASUS isn't the developer of Polaris but if they have the same or even just a similar updating schedule we can hope for great things! However, I wouldn't get my hopes up too much!

What do you guys think of this vs. Google Docs ? I've been using Google Docs for a while. The download seems pretty decent at least for getting by while you are on the go.

I am so jealous! It's time developers realize the productivity potential of Android tablets!
