A reader wants some help opening Word Documents sent via email.

“I get Word documents in my email but I use Open Office. I’d like to also read them on my tablet but it says OpenOffice isn’t available for my device? Can I convert Word documents to something my tablet can read?”

I have two easy suggestions for you. Download the free Microsoft Word App from the app store for your device. It’s free and you’ll be able to read, edit, and create Word Documents.

There’s also an app option for fans of open source office suites like OpenOffice and LibreOffice.

Like OpenOffice, Collabora offers a word processor, spreadsheet program, and presentation software. It will open and edit Microsoft Office files as well as create and edit files in the Open Document Format.

Just go to the app store for your device to download and install.
