Yesterday I commented on the imminent arrival of Office 2013 for Android . It is certainly great news, and we expect Microsoft to do something really interesting, and introduce something new in the world of Android document editors. The current problem in the office suites for Android, and do not think of Microsoft as An exception is the high cost of allowing editing documents . The price usually exceed 10 euros.
If the price of office suites for Android you think abusive, or will not pay a penny for something that you use on rare occasions, there are free alternatives on Google Play .Today I will do a review of the free office suites Kingsoft Office (free) and Olive Office Premium. Both run on Tablet and mobile.
KINGSOFT OFFICE (FREE)
As its name suggests, and otherwise would lack sense to talk about it in this article, this office suite is free editing function. assert that supports 23 different file types found among DOC / DOCX / TXT / XLS / XLSX / PPT / PPTX / PDF .
A very important feature is the support for storage services like Google Cloud Drive, Dropbox, Box.net , and other services based on the WebDAV protocol.
No doubt that is a very valid, useful and functional alternative to applications such payments. Here's a video to see how it works:

OLIVE OFFICE PREMIUM
This indicates that application supports doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx for reading y writing .Also bear alone to read documents pdf . In this case, the list of supported formats are quite lower than the Kingsoft, but are bad enough for them to kind of archives that solemos use.
This application also allows access and editing files that are hosted on Google Drive, Dropbox and Box .

Both applications are very interesting and very good alternative payment options like Documents to Go Pro and Quickoffice Pro . Meanwhile are free alternatives for those who do not have to resort to other less reliable sources to have an application with these possibilities. My recommendation is always to try both and decide which best suits your tastes and needs.
