I need to edit my OpenOffice documents.

Is there any version of LibreOffice for Android?

Or

Is there any ODT texteditor app for Android?

I've been looking, too. It appears no-one has written one yet. –  staticsan Feb 14 '12 at 0:13
    
You may wish to check Is there any highlighting or annotating software for ODT -format: LibreOffice or OpenOffice? for reference. Short answer: No, currently there's not -- but yes, something is coming (hopefully soon). –  Izzy Aug 8 '12 at 14:03

There is AndrOpen Office

AndrOpen Office is the world's first port of OpenOffice for Android.

You can view, edit, export office documents using full features of the OpenOffice.

AndrOpen Office has 6 components:

  • Writer (a word processor)
  • Calc (spreadsheet)
  • Impress (presentation graphics)
  • Draw (drawing)
  • Math (equation editor)
  • Base (database)

* AndrOpen Office is forked project from the Apache OpenOffice project.

AndrOpen Office is not affiliated with the Apache OpenOffice project.

A Quick note, default app on android phone such as "QickOffice" should work. try opening the doc as 'open As' then select quick office if available on your device.

Have you tried this, ODT isn't just a text file, and isn't just an Office .doc? QuickOffice Pro's Market listing only mentions that it can open and edit these files, none of which are Open Document compatible: .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt .pptx & .pdf –  GAThrawn Feb 14 '12 at 13:46
    
Good point, I haven't tried it personally. –  user12295 Feb 14 '12 at 15:52

Currently there is not a single solution on Android for editing ODF files. But keep your heads up: The LibreOffice team is working hard on an Android version of the entire office suite!

LibreOffice Android version

Though this is already "old news", and has been heard about for at least half a year, the screenshots look very promising -- at least with a tablet in mind.

Which leaves us with the question: When Libre Office will be available for Android Smartphones? If you read the information on the linked page (which hopefully will be updated with more details when available), it very much looks like the standard Debian answer: It's ready when it's ready.

Strictly speaking, not really an ODT editor, but Google Docs accepts ODT and you can edit Google Docs on Android. The file would have to be converted to Google Docs internal format then exported back to ODT though.

Zoho Writer seems to support viewing & editing ODT files (only tested with a very simple document):

...

  • Supports saving of documents in different formats like doc,docx,rtf,odt,txt,html and PDF

Though it seems to work awkwardly:

  • Can't directly open a file from disk, first step is importing the file.

  • Can't directly save file, must find a hidden "Export" button first.

  • Google Play reviewers have many strange bugs to report. After trying it for a few seconds I have noticed some strange redrawing issues.

OpenDocument Reader is worth checking out. It will be really good but the save function doesn't work yet. They are still working on it so when that gets updated it will be far better than AndrOpen as the interface isn't cluttered so you can actually type on it easily! You will be able to then save to dropbox, Google Drive, your email or where ever...

update: not sure the programmers are ever going to fix it. They seem a bit odd.

An editing app that doesn't save isn't really useful, is it? –  Al E. Jan 14 at 12:49
    
On their site they said they were about to update it. If they had done, it would have been the most useful of the bunch. –  Jack V Jan 14 at 14:48
