Isn’t EuroOffice just OpenOffice rebranded (maybe now, LO?)? "Based on" would seem an ambitious
description. If you recall, MultiRacio of Hungary, the makers and distributors of EuroOffice,
have had correspondence with OpenOffice (and previously, OOo) since 2007, at least. They presented
at the Barcelona OOo Conference back in 2007, where my goal was to persuade them to become
positive members of the community. They in fact positively contributed and were prominent
in the last OOoCon, the one held in Budapest. EuroOffice has contributed templates and, I
think, extensions to the repository, and the latest on this subject was, in fact, from 24
May 2013, when Kázmér Koleszár wrote to express frustration with being unable to post updates
to the extensions his company had already posted there. (Roberto Galoppini replied positively
on this matter.)

The site for MultiRacio has 2014, suggesting it’s up-to-date, more or less, but I would
be astonished if they have a version for Android, though it’s also plausible they are working
with LO on this. Easy enough just to ask Kázmér or Banai Miklós.

If the desire is to have a working open source editor for text and other documents, then I
would strongly suggest that people look to Corinthia Project, in Apache Incubator, as that
stands the best chance of actually producing something that works and can work regardless
of specific platform or environment.
