Gizmodo gives good tips on how to edit nearly any file on your phone or tablet …

“The mobile versions of Word (Android/iOS), Excel (Android/iOS), and PowerPoint (Android/iOS) are obvious apps to call on if you get a lot of Office files sent to your phone or tablet. They’ll give you perfect previews of your files, and assuming you’re on a device with a screen less than 10.1 inches in size, they let you make edits too, as long as you have a free Microsoft account.

If you have a large tablet, or don’t want to set up a Microsoft account, all is not lost. You can use Apple’s own Pages, Numbers, or Keynote apps for iOS to import and edit office files, though you might get some formatting quirks along the way. Likewise, Google Docs (Android/iOS), Sheets (Android/iOS), and Slides (Android/iOS) will have a stab at opening and editing Microsoft Office files, though the formatting and layout might not be perfectly preserved.”
