Is there a 'native' word processor with Android (4.4.2)?


Any recommendations for a basic Create, Read, Edit processor for Android that handles Microsoft .DOC files?


"Docs To GO" seems to be highly rated.

Quickoffice by Google, I have it installed but can't find it in Google Play. Microsoft Office Mobile is also free.

timmmay ... thanks.  Don't those two rely on the docs being held in the cloud?

OK, all in one products, but I used WPS Office (was Kingsoft) for years, but mainly for Excel things. It's 4.0 & above. It was better than the other Office products (tried them all) & I originally ran it on a v4 phone.


I see MS Word on the Playstore is good for 4.4 & above. Haven't used it though.


I switched to the MS Excel recently as it has become really smooth after a rocky start (like can now save to SD.) I assume Word will be similar but haven't tested.
