Well, I don't think there's LibreOffice for any mobile platform as a complete office suite as there is for desktop computer. I know there's LibreOffice Viewer for Android which allows user to open files and do some basic editing. Apparently, iOS users have OOReader available in iTunes so you could use that. Don't know if OOReader allows editing, but they both open ODT files so it should not matter much for that part.

LibreOffice started as a fork of OpenOffice and both use same file format so there should not be (too) much incompatibility.

a nitpick: both LibreOffice and AOO started as forks of

A nitpick: Oracle donated the rights to OOo to Apache, which changed the name. It also changed a lot of code with licences that didn't agree with the Apache licence standard, but for the rest it's the same thing with a sad lack of developers but an excellent user support forum where LibreOffice users are helped as well.

While there is no version of LibreOffice available for iOS yet, there are quite a few apps out there that support viewing documents. While being far from fully featured those apps have the benefit of a much smaller size. Depending on what you are aiming to do exactly, that might be enough until an official version is released in the future.

We recently launched an iOS version of our popular Android document viewer. Check it out on the App Store.
