About the app:

Collabora Office for iOS uses the same engine as LibreOffice for macOS and other platforms. This, combined with a new front-end based on Collabora Online, reads and saves documents similarly to LibreOffice desktop.

Collabora Engineers Tor Lillqvist, Tomaž Vajngerl, Michael Meeks, Miklos Vajna and Jan Holešovský have been developing iOS support since 2012, with the help of Google Summer of Code students Andrzej Hunt, Iain Billet and Kaishu Sahu.

Works Ok but has issues

This app works pretty good for what I need. I like that it syncs across my laptop, iPhone, and iPad. But on the mobile devices it has an annoying feature. When you’re in edit mode every time you touch the screen while working in the document app the keyboard pops up so now half the screen is taken up by the keyboard so it gets hard to read. At least the iPhone has a blue check button you can press that goes back to read mode so you can scroll down the page and not have the keyboard pop up again. Unless I’m missing something the iPad doesn’t have a button that I can find that puts it back in read mode. You have to save the document and exit the app then reopen it and then it will be back in read mode. This is a major inconvenience.

Closest thing to Open/Libreoffice

It may not have bells and whistles but this is by far the closest thing you will find to open/libreoffice on iOS or iPadOS.

I keep my iPad Pro (2017 version) in a laptop shell with a trackpad and keyboard and this app feels very natural when editing spreadsheets and documents. It does take some getting used to coming from an actual desktop / laptop but you can legitimately use this as a replacement if you have a hardware keyboard attached.

Only hang up is the awkwardness with the spreadsheets where the keyboard will only start working (arrow keys) after you have started to edit a cell. I think this is some weird focusing issue though and is easily to get past mentally.

Overall it is probably the best thing you will find that supports saving in open formats (odt etc) on an iDevice. Thank you so much to the developer because any alternatives I have tried before this were either riddled with ads, required a subscription, or didn’t support the files from libreoffice. Minor touch ups would make this the best office suite alternative to MS Office but all of that is mostly cosmetic.

Wish it was better

Worked great on my iphone, save for a few quirks that weren’t bad at all. But every time I opened the app, or switched to a different app long enough to warrant a reload, it saved a new folder in my google drive. This made for Several identical folders and ended with an accidental permanently deleted file from my computer.

Gives the impression of being novel to link my Ubuntu laptop to my iphone, mostly without google, but it was mostly just that.
