"Very light and I can use it on the mobile quickly"

What do you like best?

I can create files quickly.

It allows me to visualize, store, download all types of documents in a single application, since it is compatible with multiple formats.

I can edit the files quickly and adapt them to my needs.

We can use it all in the family since it is of great use for the works and exhibitions that it has to carry out.

This application allows the integration of text, statistical tables, images, photos, etc. For the generation of courses is extremely comfortable, because with it we can have the study material and make the class.

With this application I can manipulate different formats with just one, have them available anywhere I am without having a computer. I can edit text files, calculation files and presentations of any format, as well as view the full range of documents (txt, Doc, Pdf, Ppt, xls)

What do you dislike?

The separation by page does not allow to navigate calmly in the file unfolded and when you work in the complete mode the letters are very small and you have to be constantly approaching and many times it does not work, taking you to the original visualization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows you to make reports anywhere without having a laptop, simply by using the mobile you can make your reports, presentations and statistical tables.

Once completed you can send it by mail or through any social networks.

"WPS Office"

What do you like best?

I use the free version of WPS Office both on my computer (Windows 10) and my smartphone (Android 4.4.2) mostly to edit documents or to read docs and pdf files. The design of the PC software is very similar to Microsoft Office, so it isn't hard to get used to it. The mobile app is also user friendly and has a simple design.

Any file created with WPS office (documents, presentations and spreadsheets) is compatible with Microsoft Office, which means that sharing files is not a problem. WPS Office has downloadable templates and fonts for several kinds of documents.

The Free version doesn't have a pdf creator, but it is possible to print any file to pdf, and any pdf file can be read using both the PC and the Smartphone app.

It's possible to share documents with the mobile app on several social networks or messaging apps.

A great thing about WPS Office is that, although you can use it for free, without logging in; but if you do, the free version comes with 1GB available so you can save your files to the cloud; and you can also open files you have on Drive, Dropbox and such, with required permission.

What do you dislike?

I enjoy using WPS Office on my phone, it's the only 'Office app' I use on it. However, on my computer, I tend to use Microsoft Office the most. Why? Well, ADS; that's why. Although WPS Office shows ads on both devices, on my phone they can be seen as part of the list of recent documents and such, while on the computer, they can pop while I'm working and I think this is annoying. Of course, since this is a free version, it's completely understandable. I can't wait till I can afford WPS Office Premium, so I can enjoy all it has to offer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to use an alternative to Microsoft Office, you can use WPS Office; they're both very similar. WPS Office offers 1GB to save files to a cloud and free access. However, if you can't stand ads and you can afford the premium version, then go for it; you'll not only get rid of them but also will enjoy more features. The Android app is very light, the design is simple and it's very easy to use to read, edit and create documents,spreadsheets and presentations, and to print and read pdf files.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a freelance translator, so if I can't use my computer (because someone else needs it or I'm not at home), I can keep working on my smartphone without any problem. I can open and edit any type of file, no matter if they were created or edited with WPS Office or another 'Office app', I can share them as well.

Also, as I don't have any pdf reader installed on my computer, I can read pdf files using the WPS Office, because it comes with a sort of built-in pdf reader.

"WPS Office - perfect office package for almost everyone"

What do you like best?

This office package is a fantastic example of cost/benefit optimum. In standard subscription plan (3 PCs) yearly cost is symbolic. User interface is clean and well known and user experience is fantastic. There are many online templates for anyone needs. Most important is that all documents are full MS Office compatible, without any sort of problems (at least in my case and I'm working with documents that sometimes are 50+ MB big).

What do you dislike?

There are small imperfections (when loading or downloading files, ... ). Customization of quick access toolbar should have more options.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As experienced user I find this office package an ideal solution for students, SOHO environment, GO and NGO that have documents without some super extra special features. Online resources are more than good enough andsubscription plan is irresistible for any company with 3 PCs or more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having office compatible package with simpler and nice working user interface, with enjoying user experience and lover costs is always a positive thing in everyday work.

"One of the best free office files editor out there"

What do you like best?

The WPS office shows an interface similar to Microsoft Office and this is good, because it is a popular interface which makes it easy to general users understand the software. Other good think about WPS Office is just because it is free, and not simply free, it is a well-done well-build package of softwares that allow users to edit text files, slides presentations and table sheets.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike on WPS is that sometimes when the software is opening an ad shows up, it is a five seconds ad, but if you are in a rush, it can annoys you a little bit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just download it, it is a free office package, try it for some weeks, you are gonna notice that your files will look more organized than before, and your slides will look better an professional. If the ads annoy you somehow, you can pay the premium version without ads, You won't regret of your decision and also save some money on this amazing free software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WPS Office helped me just because it is free and it looks better than OpenOffice. WPS Office also does not change the clipboard formatting, which means that if I copied a blue table from a webpage, the paste option will paste a blue table without changes.

"Excellent and integrated office tool"

What do you like best?

In my opinion a simple and complete way to perform all the tasks relevant to Office. It has a good integration of applications between word processor, spreadsheet, presentations, PDF creation and reading, and with the integration of the scaner utility makes this a powerful work tool.

What do you dislike?

With so much to improve and always integrating new features WPS should have a photo editor, and a multilingual translator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend that although they are always adding more features and utilities, always look for the way that the application is not so heavy and easy to process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WPS Office has helped me with the quick and easy edition of spreadsheets, review of documents received for approval of purchases and sales in my work.

"Best Tool to Work With Operating Systems as well as with Android Phones"

What do you like best?

Works accurately with Android Phones. There is no change in the file format after uploading or downloading. It allows a user to easily view the document and edit it anytime anywhere if installed on the smartphone. I use this application on my android phone also. It is compatible with Microsoft Office. the user interface can be either static menus or the modern Ribbon, there are tabbed documents also. A Free Personal and a paid Professional version are provided by the program, one can avail for. One of the best parts is the sight-saving Eye Protection Mode option given in the application, for the protection of your eyes.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes hangs while opening more files together. As such, there isn't any negative point. There isn't any collaboration beyond the Track Changes and Comments. Another point according to me, one thing, this application is lacking and that is grammar checking. There must bs Grammer checking inbuilt tool must be there, so that chances of mistakes would be less.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just speed while opening more documents together. There must be an inbuilt grammar checking tool in the application so that one can easily work without the chances of having grammatical mistakes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Can easily view and edit official documents at home at any time easily. Without having the fear of data loss. As it keeps the data in its original format. This WPS Office application is the most attractive Microsoft Office 365 alternative. The customizable interface it is having and the other unique features make it different from other software.

"WPS"

What do you like best?

WPS has fantastic MS Office compatibility and some functions are even better in compare to original Microsoft Office counterpart. In example: when adding rows in Calc, you can specify how many rows you'd like to add at once. And there is a bunch of little nice things added to all corners of this office suite that produce WOW effect in ordinary work and tasks. Mobile version of the suite (tested on Android) is THE BEST mobile office suite period. There is nothing so powerful and allmighty under your fingers like WPS. Just to describe one thing: you can make a pivot table on your smart phone with WPS Calc. Hands down.

What do you dislike?

Commercials... OMG, from the desktop to the mobile, there is a lot of commercials. Sure, you may removed them, but they are exaggerating with commercials. Presentations with video files from PowerPoint some times got blacked and Presentation crashes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great and powerfull office suite, highly compatible with MS Office and also has very similar user interface, so the adoptation time is realy short.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Documentation, technical and user documentation, calculations, presentations.

"Almost better than the MS alternative."

What do you like best?

The user-friendly features and to what lengths the developers went to make it not only look and feel like what we are used to from MS but to also add useful tweaks that make it all feel more than just worthwhile.

Compatibility is also very high, I had very few issues: in rare cases, the formatting got altered when saving in different office packages, but nothing that cannot be easily fixed.

It's also free! This is THE way to go when creating market-leading tools. Make it accessible to everyone. This also means that the package runs natively also under Linux environments, which is gives a high benefit to both WPS and its users.

What do you dislike?

What I mostly miss from MS in WPS is the spellchecker's might. Sure, we can add those from OpenOffice, but it's far from what MS has achieved over the decades.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, it's free and You can always revert to whatever You were using before. It takes minimal time to get used to the slight differences. Setting up non-English spellcheckers and other in-depth tweaks need some snooping around the Net.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for myself. The package is free and I have Linux. I can collaborate now with ease with the people who choose to pay for a licensed program under a licensed OS.

The software self is much smaller than microsoft office, use less space, start up more quickly;

Cheaper for bussiness, free for personal use;

"Easy to use, does take some navigation"

What do you like best?

This software is affordable and easy to use. Some of the features are hidden but with a little wandering all your tools are easy to find. The auto-recover feature is very accurate.

What do you dislike?

You really have to pay for the full version. The amount of advertisements in the free trial drove my coworkers insane. The switch from Microsoft was a bit of an adjustment, especially in the spreadsheets.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy the full version. The ads are not worth the savings. Buy the product keys in multiples. The larger quantity ordered, the better the price per product key you receive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Major benefit that there is an app for this one. Makes it easy for our guys on the road to send us files in the correct formats. We are finally on

"Powerful Office Suite without the high cost!"

What do you like best?

WPS Office includes everything you would expect from an office software package, including a document creator similar to Microsoft Word, a presentation creator/editor similar to Powerpoint and a spreadsheet program similar to Excel. The unique aspect of the software is that it is available for PCs and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets which makes working on document on the go very portable and easy. The software includes a rich set of features and is available at different affordable price points, including free if you are open to sponsored access.

What do you dislike?

Would like the platform to be expanded with other office-type applications such as a database and page design software suite so that additional workloads would be available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The business edition is on par with the best office software suites for a fraction of the price. The features are well worth the price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WPS Office allows greater freedom and mobility in terms of access. While the software allows for ongoing office tasks/projects to be completed throughout the week in the office, there are situations where employees, including sales and/or support people are in the field and are required to either read office-related files or create documents on the fly. WPS offers the flexibility to make this happen. The company's newest iOS update allows staff to conduct presentations (via projectors at customer locations) using smartphones or tablets - wirelessly. This was a welcome innovation that sets the product apart from others.

"Great Linux Alternative to Microsoft Office"

What do you like best?

When I moved to linux I was using the default libre office, which all seemed quite fine until I realised the compatibility between Microsoft office outputs and the libre office outputs were different!

When working on an xlsx importer I was getting allot of weird errors when using xlsx files from libreoffice, but none from the windows or mac machine I was using. After searching for a solution for ages I realised it was because the output files were different between the two systems. That's when I discovered WPS (it was Kingsoft at the time) - in my expeirence it is the closet you can get to the microsoft office output files for the xlsx xml file - and then solved my issue!

The office it's self is a nice standard fare, although I do like that I can tab different documents in all of the tools,. thjis helps loads when cross referencing data between multiple sheets and has sped up error checking a number of times for me.

And for free! this is whats really cool, I could have gone and paid x per month for office online to get over my issues, but for free I was able to use this software.

What do you dislike?

in the last 6 months, advertisements have started appearing in WPS, requesting you buy the package and pro versions, it's not a big issue, but it is annoying if you have to get something down that is fresh in your mind, but have to wait 30 seconds before you can dismiss the advert

"Maximized compatibility. Beautiful interface. Free!"

What do you like best?

When people talk about office softwares, people instantly think of Microsoft Office and its many versions. I say give WPS a try, you'll be surprised how "Office-like" this is.

What do you dislike?

Since this is a third party software, they could have given the user more freedom to choose addons and extensions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Download WPS and try opening some of the more complicated documents, if you see full support with no compatibility issues, you should make the switch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instead pf purchasing subscriptions from Microsoft, I just use WPS for free. I am not an advanced office user and the functions WPS provides all suit my needs.

"Отличная альтернатива MS Office!"

What do you like best?

Пишу на русском, чтоб меня поняли и прочитали русскоязычные пользователи.

Перевел фирму на WPS-office, все сотрудники практически не заметили перехода. Сам активно пользуюсь скриптами в Spreadsheet, все работает отлично.

Заявленное полное соответствие с документами docx оправдано. Очень доволен и благодарен разработчикам за качественный продукт.

Сложный таблицы Excell также отлично открывает и обрабатывает.

"WPS Office"

What do you like best?

Looks very good and for the standard document's writing is good enough.

What do you dislike?

You cannot change the port for communication with WPS servers; its problem for institutions because a lot of companies have blocked some ports on their servers due to security reasons.

Only a few languages are supported.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WPS Office in the current version is good for home office and small firms. I am a researcher and there is missing support for bibliography management for me. WPS Office also use only a few languages (GUI, dictionary).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've tried to find a cheaper replacement for MS Office based on cloud services for use at home and at the office together. Unfortunately, WPS Office does not cover my needs yet.

"A good substitute, but it still needs a lot of improvement"

What do you like best?

WPS Office indeed is the software that best deals with MS Documents, including presentations that most of alternatives do not handle very well. Its layout allows MS users to navigate with ease, which is very good.

What do you dislike?

I am not a native English speaker, I am Brazilian, so most of my documents are written in Portuguese. WPS Office has an awful dictionary, that has a lot of mistakes, and I cannot trust it. It should have a way to use LibreOffice dictionary instead.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your main language is English, you'll have and amazing Office suite.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a Mechanical Engineering, doing master degree. Most of my documents are articles written in Portuguese, and quite often needs an abstract in English.

"WPS Office mo longer supports VBA/Macros"

What do you like best?

WPS has all of the functionally to handle documents and spreadsheets. PDF support is great.

What do you dislike?

Macro/VBA support has been dropped in the latest versions of WPS. Online help gives you the impression it should work. Comparison tables don't give you any clue one way or the other. This was WPS's response to my email on July 25, 2017:

"Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

We used to support Macros in Business Edition, but the Macros feature is from a third-party, the cooperation ended last year. So we don’t provide Macros/VBA in current versions.

Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with."

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need VBA support look elsewhere.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was looking for an alternative to MIcrosoft and constant battle to stay updated. But without VBA and macros WPS is not a solution.
