Overview of Microsoft Excel for Android
When we talk about spreadsheets, we think about Microsoft Excel. Until recently, Office Apps were only available on the Windows Phone. However the majority of the users were on either Apple ios or Google’s Android. Now that mobile devices are the core focus for all tech companies, it was indeed inevitable that Microsoft would release an App for these platforms.

Although you do not get all the features, you get a good subset of features which are touch optimized and easy to use on a mobile or a Tablet. With Microsoft Excel for Android you can Sort and analyze your data with Excel and create charts and data insights. The familiar look and feel of Excel enables you to create a powerful spreadsheet or to view and make quick edits on the go.
