WPS Office Reviews

Disappointing "updates"

Review by surakmn
about WPS Office and SoftMaker FreeOffice, Microsoft Office Suite Nov 2015

This used to be the best alternative to MS Office. Now, with the limitations in the update, there's little reason to mess with it. Freeoffice is now the better bet for MS compatibility and a more complete feature set with less bloat.

Not for PC, useless

Negative Review by glnemeth
about WPS Office Oct 2015

I've used this app on android and was satisfied with it, but I'm currently uninstalling this on PC.
This is literally useless, I just wanted to make a simple spreadsheet, 3 columns, few lines, thats all.
It inserts accents that I didn't type, sometimtes messes up randomly the accented characters in my language, randomly changes font type back to Times, no matter what I do AND it show the accented characters in some other font type.
While I literally can't create a simple spreadsheet with it, it has cloud support, online templates and premium features, what I really don't care for.

And they want me to pay for the premium?


Barely free anymore.

about WPS Office Aug 2015

In the most recent version of the WPS "free" version there is an incredibly disappointing catch: After 30 days of use (when the Business edition trial runs out) all printed documents and those made into PDF's have a watermark on the bottom. I used to love the free version of this software but I find this change to be unacceptable for a free edition. If I was going to pay money for the full version, I would have; but I didn't and this underhanded hindrance isn't going to change my mind. Quite the opposite. If you only want people to buy your software, don't offer a free version that is barely usable. You're just going to piss your users off. It in fact compelled me to write this review to warn others looking for free office software. Way to drop the ball Kingsoft.


Great Application!

about WPS Office and LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice, Google Docs (Suite) Feb 2013

I used to have to hack Office like 30% of PC users, now I have a real legal alternative I didn't have to give a kidney for - or feel like a thief!

Oh, and it works. Really. And the interface isn't pooh like OpenOffice or libreOffice. It opens all office documents better then Google Docs, or any other alternative, too.

finally, I even have the android version on my phone and it rocks, too.


Freeware, excellent can open & edit all MS formats

This is NOT Bait and switch (most if not all software you download is bigger when you unpack/install it than the download size. This is to keep download times to a minimum. Files are compressed - often in .zip format, then uncompress when installed - duh)
Many very attractive templates are available, also for free.
Unlike Open Office, it only has 3 modules - Word Processor, Spreadsheet and Presentation (Word, Excel and PowerPoint emulation).
