Hancom details its DeX-compatible Office Mobile suite apps for Galaxy S8
South Korean software developer Hancom today announced that a light-weight version of its Office Mobile suite comes installed on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ straight out of the box.
These apps have support for Samsung DeX, the desktop environment that’s built into Samsung’s new flagship smartphone, and thus enable users to be productive on the go. Hancom’s product replaces Microsoft Office as the primary mobile office suite for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.
Hancom’s Office Mobile apps can be used for word processing, presentation graphics and spreadsheet calculation. They’re known outside South Korea as Thinkfree Office Mobile. These apps are compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
They enable Galaxy S8 owners to view, create and edit documents on the move. They can also be used to view and annotate PDF documents. Those who want to have more features can download the full-featured versions of the Office Mobile suite from Galaxy Apps.
The full-featured apps have been optimized for Samsung DeX, they automatically switch to desktop mode when a user connects their Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ to a DeX station. The full, DeX-optimized version of Office Mobile suite is available for free to Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ owners.
