15. Hancom Office
Hancom is a closed-source office suite popular in the Asia (especially South Korea) and also cross- platform. The suite features support for the most-used Microsoft formats and also happens to be the preferred office application for most Koreans.
It has been pre-installed on quite a number of Android-powered Samsung devices in the past and it’s also one of the more intuitive options that is also available in multiple languages.
16. Office 365
If you haven’t guessed it by now, this is Microsoft’s own answer to “Office in the Cloud”. The service is basically a stripped down version of the full MS Office suite available locally as it lacks of many of the advanced features.
You are therefore limited to its basic functionality that will give you a rather sub-par experience. You can however enjoy seamless integration with Onedrive and other features like online collaboration and more.
