OpenOffice Writer is a word processor and publishing tool.

It supports different document formats, including .docx, and .doc. It's simple enough for a quick memo and yet powerful to create large documents, reports, and books. With rollApp you can try Open Office Writer online, so it is always with you on the move or at home. Create documents, align pictures or diagrams, save files with minimal fuss, the same way you use desktop software. Plus, you get cloud access: OpenOffice, Office and other documents and files are easily accessible from your cloud storage: Google Drive, Box and Dropbox.

Key features:

  • Wizards take all the hassle out of producing standard documents such as letters, faxes, agendas, minutes, or carrying out more complex tasks such as mail merges. You can also create your own templates, or download templates from the Templates repository
  • Advanced Styles and Formatting
  • Table of Contents & References - increase the usefulness of your long, complex documents by generating a table of contents or indexing terms, bibliographical references, illustrations, tables, and other objects
  • Text frames and linking for publishing tasks like newsletters and flyers
  • Notes - the notes feature displays notes and comments on the side of the document. This makes notes a lot easier to read
  • AutoCorrect dictionary can trap typing mistakes on the fly, checking your spelling as you type. Writer can handle the use of different languages in your document too
  • AutoComplete reduces typing effort. It also suggests common words and phrases to complete while you are typing

Writing documents online is easy: use OpenOffice Writer on rollApp from your desktop computer, laptop, iPad or Android tablet or other device. You can even get it for your Chromebook from Chrome Webstore. One click to launch.

    Looking at the previous reviews I think that reviewers are actually reviewing too things: Open Office Writer RollApp as a delivery tool I am familiar with Open Office and Libre Office and rate them both very highly. They are not Microsoft Office but then they are free. You need a good Internet connection and with that RollApp has generally performed well in Chrome on Chromebook, Ubuntu and Windows 7. Opening Google Drive can be frustratingly slow and printing using Cloudprint doesn't seem to be

    Nice idea poorly executed. There is terrible lag working in the document. And if you try to use the on screen keyboard you can only see one line of text, maybe unless you at the bottom of the page then the keyboard hides everything.

    I have been using OO for a few years on my windows laptop. I like it. It's free. Got a chromebook so I tried this. It works but a bit laggy. The problem is that it doesn't show up on my drive and I can't print it. I can retrieve through the application but that's it. Maybe in the future.

    It really isn't as user friendly as google thinks it is. I hit something and accidentally increased the type to enormous and couldn't get it back to normal again. I had to the close the application and open another. And I can't figure out how to save anything.

    Like others before me I have given this a poor rating solely based on the fact that, as a writer, a use a keyboard with my Ipad and this application will not allow me. Great app but rendered usless for what I want to use it for. When we are able to use a keyboard I will start using the product and definitely change my rating.

    I thought everything was great then it wouldn't let me email the whole document to save it online as a word file since making a word file on my phone takes longer I was trying it on my laptop. no email text in one click? Lame. I had to copy and paste totally a let down. :(

    I use this several weeks and it works ok. have you add cloud storage for saving your files? moreover, if internet connection is lost you can reconnect during 10 minutes and it will work from the place you leave it.

    it is possible to get blue tooth key boards to work with it office writer. If you look at the bottom of the screen there is an menu arrow that you have to swipe up. It shows a keyboard icon that you have to select . Once you select it you can use your bluetooth keyboard.

    Unable to use. While the idea is great, I'm unable to use my Bluetooth keyboard for my writing. Keyboard works fine with Note and my browser for other things, but won't work in the OO Writer shortcut. I was all set to write my meeting notes, but quickly realized I would have to use the touchscreen keyboard. No thanks. If there is a way to get bluetooth keyboards to work in the shortcut, I'll gladly update my rating.

    Formatting is great - by that I mean that what's on screen is exactly as on the computer screen. That's good. Problem: it's not easy to navigate the text, to go up and down for example, or to input text. I could use it to write a quick letter or short doc, not a whole long document. Please find a way to enable copy and paste from other apps, for example text only apps, which are easier to write in. Then one could write text files, copy and paste into Open office writer and be done with it.

    A tablet useability - no mouse, no keyboard, finger gestures only - comes with a number of limitations, which even great applications like OpenOffice cannot overcome. One must then trim down features from OpenOffice within the true interactive capabilities of a tablet. My humble advice would to draw the distinction between what is available via a full-blown Personal Computer versus a tablet. In any case, a 5-star for this 1st successful iteration of rollApp outshining by far SkyDrive rival.

    Hey I was contacted very quickly by the developer after leaving the last review. To be very clear rollAPP works well on iMAC - however so does standard Open Office. On Ipad rollAPP is ok but there are basic features still to add as you cannot, for example, copy and paste into it from the web. As the developer bothers to read these and has been proactive in understanding the issue I have increased the 2 stars to 3 - pending clipboard type functionality being extended to the iPad version.

    Great app - so pleased somebody's finally produced this. The one thing that I think might really help users is a format guide, explaining what formats (.doc, .docx, .rtf etc) open in different programmes. It's taken me quite a bit of trial and error to work out that it is only .rtf that opens in Open Office, Dropbox, and Microsoft Word 2003. Apologies in advance if this is already somewhere on the website and I've failed to find it - if you let me know I'll update your score to 5 stars!

    I really like being able to use Open Office on my iPad. Thanks for the hard work to make it so. That said, It would be great if there were an option to save the document directly to the bookshelf, instead of having to use the email/icloud storage work around. It would be even better if it could access airprint as a printer to print locally. Thank you.
