Smart Office Plus isn’t as well known as ThinkFree Office, OfficeSuite Pro, Documents To Go, or Quickoffice Pro. So before downloading it was I a bit skeptical as to its quality, thinking it is probably just a developer trying to make a quick buck with a poorly developed Office app. However, once I downloaded it and started using it, I was pleasantly surprised.
As it turns out, Smart Office Plus is not a poorly developed Office app; it actually works fairly well. I didn’t spent too much time using it but during the time I did use I was impressed: Documents load quickly, documents are displayed perfectly – although there is no reflow view when viewing PDFs – editing documents is fairly easy, and the interface is polished, well designed, and easy to use. In fact one area where some Office apps fail is showing images in documents; but Smart Office Plus accurately displayed all images in the all the files I have tested so far with it. And there is even a “3D view” option which I couldn’t test because I don’t have a 3D phone but still sounds interesting nonetheless.
Is Smart Office Plus better than the competition? Hmm… that is hard to decide with the little time I spent with it. What I can say, however, is Smart Office Plus is a good Office app and worth getting if you need it.
As already mentioned Smart Office Plus is being offered via GetJar Gold. So it is available for an indefinite amount of time but likely won’t get free updates.
You can grab Smart Office Plus from the GetJar Gold section of your GetJar app (if you have it installed already) or hit up the link below on your mobile phone to download the GetJar app and then download Smart Office Plus (you will be prompted to download the GetJar app when you try to download Smart Office Plus from the website):
