Interface and Usage
Polaris app for Android is professionally designed. It displays an array of features on the main user interface. You need to scroll through the menus to see how these features work. The app comes with user documentation to help users improving their experience. App on Google Play supports different file formats such as PPTX, XLSX, PPT, XLS, DOCX, DOC and TXT. Along with these file formats, it supports reading PDF documents.
The app has big icons to navigate around menus comfortably. All menus and buttons are aligned properly in order to perform required actions. You can change the style of written text through tabbed screen. Swiping between pages of document is very simple with an ability to zoom the document. While working with different types of documents, you may realize that the menus are almost same thus making consistent experience throughout usage.
Distinguishing Features within App
Developers have integrated TTS (Text-to-Speech) in Polaris Office suite which reads the selected part of the document.
The Spreadsheet app provides a broad array of different features in the Fx Menu. It makes the mathematical calculations quick and simple. Additionally you can use faux-laser pointer in presentation mode. These features are very useful and impressive for an editor.
What lacks in the App?
Polaris is a handy app for documentation but unfortunately it is not designed to edit these documents to length. It shows existing comments in the document; but you can’t make new comments. Track Changes which is one of the widely used features is also missing in the app. It is usually offered in competitive apps.
App runs smoothly in iOS but in some cases it lags on Android when connecting to cloud support. The Android version allows you to sync your documents with the help of DropBox. However for the iOS version there are some additional cloud services available. As long as Android and iOS versions are compared, some features are missing in the Android version. For example: The iOS version has free iPad version but for Android version it does not have free features for Galaxy Note II and Nexus 7.
