Editors' Review

+
Though not quite as robust, this productivity suite makes a decent alternative to the ubiquitous Microsoft office. Most average users won't have a problem operating both TextMaker and PlanMaker, which look very similar to Word and Excel respectively. Both of these utilities have all the features you might expect, though it may take a bit of patience to get used to the different arrangement of them. Also, when we tried to launch DataMaker and Basic Script from the toolbar in the word-processing program, we got error messages, which is a bit discomforting. And if you're looking for an office suite with a built in e-mail client or PowerPoint functionality, you won't find it here. Still, if you seek a cheaper alternative to Microsoft Office and only work with Excel and Word, there's no reason not to give Ashampoo Office 2005 a chance.

"Excellent compatibility with MS Office"

January 08, 2013  |  By kramyugtaht

 |  Version: Ashampoo Office 2012 12.0.0.959

Pros

The high compatibility is a huge plus, if you've done your homework you know there are formatting inconsistencies with the free office suites available out there. If you need to exchange data with people who use Microsoft Office at all then this is a concern. Also you can install a portable version on a USB drive.

Cons

For the practically CONSTANT sale price and upgrade offers, none. For comparison, yes Kingsoft has the new ribbon style interface (and the traditional too) that is in newer Microsoft office, I guess if you like that then that's a deficiency with this one but the reason Kingsoft even includes a choice of BOTH is because so many people are used to navigating the old way.

Summary

I can only conclude CNETproductions just does not pay attention, there are sales on this product all the time - it is currently $15. Also if you register your free version you will INEVITABLY get an upgrade offer at a MUCH reduced price, as Ashampoo is known to do on a FREQUENT basis.

Also of note: This is actually the same as Softmaker Office. Again, you can get the free (they give away older versions) or trial version and there is a VERY good chance they will offer you upgrade to the full product at a discount.

"Unreasonable Price"

June 01, 2012  |  By CNETproductions

 |  Version: Ashampoo Office 2012 12.0.0.959

Pros

-Compatible with MS office

Cons

-Expensive for it's productivity
-Traditional interface

Summary

Ashampoo may be good in features, but many brands with the price is better. For example, WordPerfect is way better. Kingsoft Office 2012 is $60, and has a better interface, PDF convertor and a encryption option. I've recommend Kingsoft office 2012 to those who are thinking to using Ashampoo. However, Ashampoo Free is a alternative to those who use LibreOffice and OpenOffice.

 |  Version: Ashampoo Office 2012 12.0.0.959

Pros

Excellent price - performance ratio. Works quickly. Does not require a lot of hardware resources of a computer.

Cons

Not yet discovered. Say absolutely sincere.

Summary

The office suite is simply magnificent. He did not analog of Microsoft Office, he is a standalone software product that is compatible with Microsoft Office. It is easier and more understandable for ordinary users than Microsoft Office. Its functionality will satisfy all the sophisticated demands of any user.

Updated on Mar 10, 2012

Ashampoo Office 2010 and 2012 is an excellent office software product for a very reasonable price. Functionally, he is no different from Microsoft Office 2007 for home use is the best option. Thanks for the firm Ashampoo for an excellent software. I gained a lot of software products: Ashampoo Photo Optimizer 4, Slideshow Studio HD 2, Snap 5, Photo Commander 9, HDD Control 2, Photo Optimizer 4, Internet Accelerator 3, WinOptimizer 9, and others. All of these programs have found practical application and brought great benefit and satisfaction, because for a very small amount, I acquired a large number of excellent software. In addition, the marketing Ashampoo is very flexible and pleasant, as I often did great discounts on software. I advise everyone to buy do not hesitate - you will not regret. Sincerely, Suvorov Sergey. Russia.

"Worst software ever. Complete garbage"

January 13, 2012  |  By wilco318

 |  Version: Ashampoo Office 2012 12.0.0.959

Pros

None will not even install

Cons

None will not even install

Summary

Fisrt up I am a long time Ashampoo software user and this would have to be the worst piece of **** I HAVE EVER TRIED TO INSTALL.
It will not even install just keeps on poping up a window that the install key in wrong and, there support is even worse (hopeless). Do yourself a favour and buy Microsoft office 2010 or corel at least they install.

"Unable to install"

December 27, 2011  |  By CSO703

 |  Version: Ashampoo Office 2012 12.0.0.959

Pros

Claims it is an update.

Cons

I currently have Ashampoo Office 2010. Website said I would be able to install and try the 2012 version without affecting the 2010 version but during the install the program said the 2010 version had to be uninstalled. Did not want to lose the 2010 version so I aborted the 2012 version.
