Despite its name, the OpenOffice Document Reader (OODR) app for Android can handle not only Writer documents, but also LibreOffice and ODF files. OODR is not exactly overloaded with features, but it does support some basic text formatting and images, and it lets you copy text.

When installed, OODR acts as a helper tool for several popular apps, including Dropbox, File Expert, and ASTRO File Manager. This means that you can view ODF documents from within these apps using OODR. You can also use OODR to open ODF attachments in the Gmail app. Although OODR is decidedly a bare-bones app, it can come in rather handy when you need to quickly view a document when you are on the move.


  • There is a better one...

    The free Mobile Document Viewer is an app that does the formatting of ODF documents a bit better and offers support for more document formats, e.g. docx.
