Alternative uses that you can give your Android terminal: text editor

To achieve this, it is logical to use applications created by third parties that turn the terminals into true word processors. There are options of all kinds, such as those offered by Microsoft (an expert in this segment), Google, and companies as interesting as Zoho. The fact is that with all the options we provide you can create your documents in a simple way and with very varied options, which will make you get more out of your device.

The chosen applications

Before starting to indicate the options we have chosen, which can all be obtained for free in the Play Store, it must be said that We are not among developments that are complete office suites, but before applications that simply act as a word processor. Therefore, apart from the editing of documents with possibilities such as the inclusion of images or tables, it does not include works that allow managing spreadsheets or presentations.

Google Docs

This is the specific development of the Mountain View company that created Android, which also has a browser version and connects perfectly with Google’s cloud storage (Drive). The options offered are varied, such as the editing and creating documents, compatibility with various formats of this type of files and, in addition, it enhances collaborative work with the inclusion of comments. An option that should never be discarded and that is achieved here.

Google Documents app

Office Word for tablet

If there is a company that has experience in managing text documents, it is Microsoft, since it has a really impressive background behind it. They have moved the tablets (the preview version for phones came out yesterday) the experience of using Word. And, the truth is that it has been achieved including options of all kinds – such as editing, inclusion of images or tables, printing, and, of course, sharing options. Download in Play Store.

Zoho Writer

This development belongs to a company that has a large number of developments for Android (and web versions). Offers a enriched text management with great power and, in addition, with many possibilities: inclusion of links, table management, use and images, etc. It can be used without an internet connection and supports speech to text conversion. Download link.

Zoho Writer app

Writer

This is the simplest development of all those included, since it is what is known as a “flat” text processor. That is does not offer a lot of visual add-ons and that additional options are therefore present in a menu system. This makes the whole screen show what is being typed, but everything is less intuitive. It offers options such as being able to save documents on the microSD card. Get it on Play Store.

Wrter app for Android

JotterPad

This development is similar to the previous one, and we have included it because offers very interesting options when it comes to using the keyboardas it is extended. It offers simple editing options, so it is not a job for those who need to get the most out of their Android device when it comes to managing text. It also includes advanced sharing options. Download it here.
