By Ho Young Won

Polaris Office has been the leading application in the mobile office industry ever since the emergence of the smartphone market. Many competitors have come up during the recent years, however, Polaris Office has matured and developed even further in response to the competition. So, let’s take a look at its top 5 features and see why Polaris Office is one of the best applications to get on your mobile device!

This collaboration extends further as you also have the ability to make and chat within ‘Groups’ to discuss a specific document and project with your colleagues.

There’s no doubt that Polaris Office is made for mobile devices. However, this does not mean that it lacks the features from desktop office software. Polaris Office is fully featured with extensive editing options including the ability to insert Charts, Tables, edit paragraph styles, and much more. It’s safe to say that Polaris Office does not compromise on features.

#4 Simultaneously sync across all of your devices


Whenever you make a new document or make any edits on Polaris Office, the file will automatically be saved and synced to the cloud. Also, by having your Polaris account connected to other devices, you can simultaneously sync and access the file across multiple operating systems including iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.

#5 It’s FREE


One of the best parts about Polaris Office is its price, which can be totally free. Most of the awesome features listed above and within the app is available through the free version. While competitors may charge an entry fee to use their application, Polaris Office provide a free option to actually try the software.

Users can also upgrade their free account to Premium which opens up a ton of more features including 100 GB of cloud storage, extensive PDF editing, and more! For additional information about going Premium on Polaris Office, click here.
