OfficeSuite[1] is a cross-platform office suite application developed by MobiSystems.[2] It has versions for Android, iOS and Microsoft Windows (PC) and adds extensive PDF abilities to its compatibility with the most frequently used Microsoft Office file formats. The software has over 220 million downloads on Google Play and is among the top Android business applications.[3]

OfficeSuite can be found preinstalled on devices by Sony, Amazon, Alcatel, Sharp, Toshiba, ZTE, Huawei, Kyocera and more.

History[edit]

The software was first released as a mobile application on Palm OS in 2004 (incorporating older MobiSystems apps: Quick Spell, Quick Check and Quick Write), followed by Symbian in 2005. Until 2009, OfficeSuite was mainly used as a reader. Then MobiSystems received an inquiry by Sony for an Android based office solution development. Sony required it within a very narrow time frame - just 12 weeks.[4] Apparently the developers succeeded and Sony preinstalled the newly developed OfficeSuite on all of their Android devices in 2009. Several years later the software debuts on iOS in 2013 and the year 2016 marked the first desktop client version for Windows[5]. Today, OfficeSuite is a very powerful office solution that has extensive features used by millions of businesses and users around the globe. In 2018 the app was selected by Google to be among the few to receive Android Excellence Award[6].
