Microsoft adds multi-factor authentication support to Office 365 for tablets

Microsoft Office 365 was made available for Android last year and with it come security options for several accounts with multi-factor authentication. To be sure, users are asked to enter a password. That seems easy to do and anyone can access a document but there's a second level of security that requires you to respond to a phone notification, text message, or a phone call. This security feature has been working on smartphones and PCs but unfortunately, there was no support given for tablets.

Microsoft’s scanning app Office Lens now available on Android

With a lot of people trying to go for a paperless lifestyle, scanning documents is becoming second nature for us, and we're not talking about those huge flatbed scanners or even the 3-in-1 kind of printer/scanner, which you obviously can't lug around. We're now into the age of apps that can scan documents and then readjust them so they won't look just like another picture. One of the more popular ones (well, at least for Windows phone users) is Microsoft's Office Lens and it is now available for Android devices.

JotterPad 11 is a writer’s delight, save work in multiple formats

As a writer, finding the correct writing apps for your Android device can be quite a daunting -- if not impossible -- task, just because devices are not built with writing (typing) in mind. There are those that go over-the-top and take the joy out of the writing experience completely. Then there are those that are too minimalist you don’t seem to be able to do anything at all. Thankfully, for all you writers-on-the-go out there, there’s the wonderfully blissful JotterPad 11, the latest iteration of the mobile text editor for Android.

LibreOffice Viewer arrives on Android in beta form

Another productivity suite comes to Android, this time with a more open source bent and with a distinctive legacy. The open source LibreOffice suite is finally on our favorite mobile platform, but it has two important caveats. First is that it's still in beta, which probably isn't much of an issue for some who are used to beta testing such early releases. The showstopper, however, is that LibreOffice on Android, for now, is simply a document viewer, limiting it's overall usefulness to a certain subset.

Microsoft starts beta test for Office on Android tablets

Microsoft is reportedly working on an Office beta program for Android tablets, after meeting with relative success in their iOS foray. While there are still no clear details on how this will be different from the existing mobile version, it is expected that it will work just like its iOS version, with Word, Excel and Powerpoint sure to be part of this working suite.

Massive updates for Google Docs, Sheets arrive

With the announcement last week during the I/O Conference that the Google Office Suite would be able to create and edit Microsoft Office within their apps, we were expecting that the roll-out would be done in the next few months. But surprise, surprise! Google Docs and Sheets have started releasing updates today and the changes in the two are significant and very much welcome.
