The updated release of Collabora Office for Android and iOS now supports opening password protected documents and is available for F-Droid. Thus the open source app running on your mobile devices – mind that ChromeOS is supported too – is again gaining in both features and user support.

Just click on the document you’d like to open. In case it is a password-protected document Collabora Office will display the field for the password entry. Needless to say that this naturally works for text documents, spreadsheets and presentations alike, be it DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, ODT, ODS, ODP,or ..

Regularly users have asked us about the availability of Collabora Office for F-Droid, the community driven platform focusing on free and open source apps for Android. And now it’s here! Currently we provide two versions: the 4.2.x release – already longer existing, and the snapshot of the unstable 6.4 line. With the latter you can help us test the latest and greatest features! Something we really appreciate, so do contact us 🙂 !
However.. searching in the F-Droid site app list, you will not find it; first you will have to add the repo. Of course the F-Droid community provides a simple and clear HowTo.
In short: you need to add the following third party repository: https://www.collaboraoffice.com/downloads/fdroid/repo/ (see the QR-code below).
Collabora Office is the first fully functional mobile document editor for F-Droid. Thanks to the F-Droid community for helping to make this possible. Shortly we’ll publish a post adding more details to the story and possibly addressing some questions too.

    1. I agree, to securely trust the authenticity of the app we need the key to add along with the address.

  1. In the latest version, 6.4.99, documents aren’t saved after editing and trying to open a password protected. .ods leads zu be stuck at the loading screen.

  2. Hi,
    Two topics:
    1. i would donate the Android/iOS version. How can i do that?
    2. why not to put the Collabora APP to default F-Droid repo?
    Regards. Andrzej
