The major drawback is that this application isn’t compatible with many android devices. Unlike iOS devices which run Microsoft office app smoothly. You can’t use this app in android powered tablets. The subscriber part is also a nonstarter.

So overall it is not a good alternative to Libreoffice for android and other free office applications.
