There are a lot of apps in Google Play for your Samsung Galaxy Note 2 that let you create, edit, and view Microsoft Office files on the go, but none match up to the power of an app called Polaris Office for Samsung Galaxy devices.
However, the newest version, Polaris Office 5, only works on the Samsung Galaxy S4. When Facebook user Deeb Zeal asked Polaris about the availability of their updated office app on other Android devices, he was given this response.
As it turns out, it's a bunch of politics and bullshit that ends up depriving users of great applications—either you purchase the Galaxy S4 or you don't get the awesome features of Polaris Office 5.
Well, that didn't stop us.
- First, make sure you allow app installations from Unknown Sources under Settings -> Security.
- Click on this file directly from your Note 2.
- Download the file named POLARIS Office 5.apk.
- Install on your device (took me a few minutes, so be patient).
And that's really all there is to it. Enjoy!
- Create, edit, and view Microsoft Office Documents
- Works with Word, PowerPoint, Excel and PDF files
- Save directly to device or to cloud
To create a new document, tap on the plus sign at the top of the app. There are templates for each type of document, but you can also start from scratch. From there, you can add text, drawings (with the S-Pen), pictures, graphs and much more.
The application is easy to use and works great for anyone that needs to edit Word documents on the go.
