Editors' Review

Looking for a word processor, spreadsheet and slideshow maker, basic vector drawing creator, and database manager? Open-source LibreOffice for Mac is all that and more. Compatible with most known file types such as MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, this software offers functionality, an intuitive interface, and overall good results.

LibreOffice for Mac is about 175MB, which is rather large, but this can be expected of this type of software. The program features a quite intuitive and user-friendly interface, very similar to Office but a lot simpler. When it comes to its looks, this program seems rather outdated and could use a makeover. However, some users may appreciate it exactly for its simplicity and modesty. When it comes to opening documents with rather simple formatting this software does the job well, although you can expect some minor compatibility glitches with documents containing more complicated formatting and graphics. Overall, with an active community of contributing developers regularly pushing updates, enhancements and bug corrections, this software seems to have a bright future.

A serious alternative to MS Office for budget-minded Mac owners, LibreOffice for Mac is currently the best option available on the open-source market. It is perfect for students who can't afford an Office license or for any open-source software supporters.

"Similar to Microsoft Office 2003"

May 24, 2013  |  By katnip3

 |  Version: LibreOffice 4.0.3

Pros

Above all, it's 100% free. It can save and open in Microsoft Office file formats. In many ways, I like it better than Microsoft Office. Some things, such as borders on tables, may take a little getting used to though. LibreOffice, not OpenOffice, often comes preinstalled on Linux systems such as Ubuntu.

Cons

The spreadsheet application crashes frequently, although that may have been resolved in the lastest update.

"4.0.3.3 keeps getting better"

May 09, 2013  |  By drumsandmusic

 |  Version: LibreOffice 4.0.3

Pros

This is great software, very usable and reliable. But cnet still has not fixed the missing LO icon for the LO mac software entry. Is it that hard? This was first reported on 11th feb 2013. 3 month later and nothing has happened. That is of course not LOs fault but CNETs.

Cons

nothing really. You are using a opensource office suite using a free file format.
