SoftMaker Office Mobile has been on the market for several years, and is in use by hundreds of thousands of Android users the world over.
In all the buzz about the new product, we’ve been hearing one question over and over again: Will the new SoftMaker Office HD replace SoftMaker Office Mobile?
Absolutely not. SoftMaker Office Mobile and SoftMaker Office HD are two different application packages and we’ll continue to develop both side by side.
But how are the two packages different?
- SoftMaker Office Mobile runs on both smartphones and tablets, but its user interface is optimized for the smaller screens on smartphones. Its range of functions is designed to let users take care of everyday tasks efficiently. SoftMaker Office Mobile is just right for people who want to faithfully display and work on office documents quickly and practically on their mobile phones.
- SoftMaker Office HD, on the other hand, is designed especially with tablet users in mind, and specifically for those who want to work with the complete range of functions of the desktop version of SoftMaker Office. It offers a Windows-like user interface, but one that is optimally adapted to Android (gesture-based scrolling and zooming, touch-friendly use, etc.). With this version it’s possible, for the first time ever on an Android tablet, to handle even the most complex office tasks and mothball that heavy notebook for good. You’ll be able to create and revise documents, spreadsheets, and presentations on a tablet just as comprehensively as you would with a PC.
SoftMaker Office HD is already based on the newest technology of the upcoming SoftMaker Office 2015 for Windows. The filters for Microsoft file formats have gotten even better, and speed has been increased dramatically.
Our recommendation: Use SoftMaker Office Mobile on smartphones, and SoftMaker Office HD on Android tablets.
