There are more Office apps at the Google Play Store for Android than there are for desktop platforms. Unlike operating systems like Windows or Mac, there have been a plethora of developers trying to cash in the need for making presentations, spreadsheets and text base documents on Android devices. However, despite the variety of Office apps for Android, many lack the features that make desktop apps so powerful. Even the RT edition of Office for Microsoft’s Surface tablets is nowhere near as powerful as its desktop counterpart.
Among the dozens of Office apps you might find at the Play Store, we have compiled a list of 5 Best Android Apps for Business Presentations to help you find the right match for your needs. These are apps which provide basic features that can enable you to create, view, edit and present your business presentations using an Android smartphone or tablet.
1. PowerPoint for Android
It is beyond anybody’s comprehension what took Microsoft so long to enter the mobile industry with their Office. Having said that better late than never. PowerPoint for Android has come a long way since the Office Mobile app was released by Microsoft. Not only have the features improved but there is integration for some online services which enables pulling files from not only OneDrive but also Google Drive, Dropbox and Box.
Needless to say, you can create, edit, view and present presentations with this app. Considering the Office Online service allows you to use PowerPoint for free, this app too provides some level of free usage. You can sign in with a Microsoft account to use create and edit your files for devices with a screen size of 10.1 inches. For complete Office features you will require an Office 365 subscription. This includes support for Android tablets larger than 10.1 inches, for which a subscription is required to create and edit documents.

2. Google Slides
Google has been a major player in providing Office apps since Google Docs was introduced back in 2007. It later evolved into Google Drive, with separate apps for making documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Today, Google Slides, the PowerPoint alternative by Google is no longer an app used to merely view PowerPoint presentations. It has in fact taken a life of its own.
With Google Slides you can not only view and edit PowerPoint files but even create new robust presentations from scratch, using amazing default templates offered by Google. Moreover, you can connect apps like CloudConvert to your Google Drive account to perform file conversion from the cloud or connect a third-party service like DocuSign to digitally sign documents.
Google Slides is undoubtedly one of the most powerful presentation apps on the Google Play store and is perfect for business presenters looking to create and present their presentations.
