For many people your Android system comes with OfficeSuite Viewer 6 pre-installed and it's one of those things you can't uninstall unless you have root access.

So to that end why not just install the full OfficeSuite 6 Pro... mostly the cost would be the issue for something you may not need or even really want eating up your system resources.

But what if it was only $0.99 (NZD1.25) on a three days special ending 10th May?

Interested now?....

OfficeSuite Pro 6 + (PDF & HD) can be moved to SD card. (Approx 4MB resident when on SD or approx 17.0MB on phone)

Still not able to integrate, uninstall or move the original pre-installed OfficeSuite Viewer 6 (16.4MB) to SD that came with the phone (two minutes of checking)... ...oh well.

Note to self - Get root access to phone. [yawn]

Don't really need it, but for $1.25 I bought it anyway, might be handy sometime down the line.

Of course, I also bought Docs2Go and QuickOffice Pro on the same basis when they were free/on sale...

Yep, pretty much sums up my purchase as well. Can't hurt right?

btw - they don't upgrade the app they just release new versions which you will have to rebuy.

eg. last year office suite pro 5, was free on amazon android app store.

I was gonna "why not?, grab it if it's only $1" , but above info has dissuaded me.

That makes me really sad. I pretty much buy any app that shows some promise to try and support dev's but this sort of thing makes me sad.

I mis-worded my post, it sounds too strong.  What I meant to say was - I noticed they had version 5 last year and version 6 this year. This looks like they release a new version as a new app every year. I might be wrong, but I just based it on this observation.
