    • Round/adaptive icon

      It would be great if the app got support for round/adaptive launcher icons for Android 8.0 onwards so that the icon isn't displayed as a square in a white circle on devices such as the Google Pixel.

                • EDB to PST Converter

                  Most exchange veterans who’ve had to deal with any sort of anomalies in the exchange database would recognize EdbMails – the pioneer recovery platform for all things exchange recovery, be it exchange database corruption or shutdown errors.

                  EdbMails has recently released an update to its data recovery tool, let’s have a look at what it brings to the table :

                  The deep scanning algorithm that EdbMails uses has been further enhanced to give a quicker and more responsive recovery experience than before.

                  User interface changes to make the recovery process more seamless and rather straightforward so that even non technical…

                  • Add the full proofing and grammar checking tools included on MS Word desktop version

                    In full Microsoft Word (desktop version, from 2007 onwards) you can switch on extra grammar checking and readability features that help you write.

                    https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Test-your-document-s-readability-85b4969e-e80a-4777-8dd3-f7fc3c8b3fd2

                    How about having the option to switch these on in the Android version of Word?

                    I appreciate this would be a 'paid for' thing and be included in an Office365 subscription.

                    All I'll say is, right now, there's not a lot between Android Word and built-in options like Google Docs. To people who write for a living, having an offline readability checker is really useful. If Android Word has it, but Google Docs doesn't, which one…

                        I hate the newest feature, in which the word count pops up every time I scroll a document, especially when I'm not even editing it. This word count pop up is so unnecessary it's unbelievable russet anyone thought this is a good idea. Please remove it!

                                I write my essays for college on my phone through the word app. Most of my essays require my to type them in times new Roman which isn't possible on the app. I was wondering if it were possible to add the font to the other fonts, so I can continue my school work though the app.

                                • Unable to delete word file on an android device, when its opened for just viewing nothing else.

                                  Let me explain what is going on.
                                  When you open a password protected Word or Excel file on Android Word or Excel,
                                  It opens the file and then dumps an unprotected version of that file deep into Android's file system.
                                  Later, when you delete the original on your phone, the file still shows up in your Android Word or Excel 'recents' list and you can just tap it and open it. It is quite disturbing. It has a long file path usually users>>data>>0 ...
                                  The only way to delete this copy is to go to Androids app screen, select Word…

                                    • Enable choosing default font in Word (Office) for Android

                                      How come it's not possible to enable a default font in Word for the Android platform, when competing companies can?
                                      Really, how hard can it be, programming-wise ... ?

                                      • Recent files list

                                        Needs an option to switch off the recent files list. I have encrypted doc files on my phone which require a password to open them. But once opened they can be accessed directly from the Recent Files list. There should at least be an option to switch off this obvious security flaw.
