(Apache: I am not subscribed to your mailing list; one discussion on LibreOffice 
mailing list turned out to point possible violation of your trademark and I 
think you should know)

To find the AOO port. . . .
go to Google Play
search for OpenOffice


AndrOpen Office is Apache OpenOffice port for Android.
You can view, edit, export office documents using full features of 
Apache OpenOffice.
(NOTE: You can only edit in English in current version.)

AndrOpen Office has 4 components:

- Writer (a word processor)
- Calc (spreadsheet)
- Impress (presentation graphics)
- Draw (drawing)


This is scam. They don't have a right to make such claims and are in no way 
associated with Apache.

I have been following Apache OpenOffice ecosystem quite closely for some time 
and I assure you, that they would make it clear if they had Android port. The 
only official thing you can find about this is this blog post from beginning from 

It actually states something contrary. Let's quote:
9b. "Can I load OpenOffice onto my Google Android tablet?"

(Combining two related questions) 

Apache OpenOffice is available from the project for Windows, MacOS and Linux.  
Community members additionally have ported OpenOffice to BSD, Solaris and OS/2, 
and make these ports available on their own websites.   There is no port of 
OpenOffice for tablets.  However, there are some 3rd party solutions that allow 
remote access to an OpenOffice session, for example rollApp.

Their e-mail is "". It should ring a bell: why they 
didn't set up e-mail address in domain?

And one more thing: developer is "andropenoffice. com" (I put a space here, as I 
strongly discourage to go into their website unless you are running virtual 
machine and can catch any bad things that might be there). That website was 
created in February this year and contains little content besides 
advertisements. It is credited by "GMO Internet", which I never heard about.

Whereas Apache OpenOffice source code is distributed under permissive license, 
Apache OpenOffice (and, for that matter) is registered trademark. 
It is protected by international law and can't be used to name other products.

I am CC-ing Apache OpenOffice dev list. Hopefully it don't require subscription 
and someone there will take care of this issue.
Best regards
