Introducing Aspose for Android

Last month, we announced the launch of Aspose for Cloud, a series of REST APIs that brings Aspose’s APIs to developers who work with cloud apps. This month, we’re delighted to be able to announce the release of our first Aspose for Android products: Aspose.Email for Android and Aspose.Words for Android. Aspose for Android is a suite of tools that give developers document management features for Android apps. Read the press release. The new products extends our existing document management, creation and conversion features to Android so that software developers working on that platform can add professional document features to their apps. Aspose.Email for Android helps developers program with Microsoft Outlook emails, and Aspose.Words for Android helps them work with Microsoft Word and other word processing documents.
