"Promising but..."

May 25, 2011  |  By Biglet

 |  Version: OfficeReady Professional 4.0

Pros

Wide variety of templates available, some of which are quite good

Cons

Product doesn't appear to be supported now, with the website out of date, templates marked as only working with version 3.0 but I downloaded 4.0, so will they work or not?

The included templates aren't enough for me as I'm a pro' writer

Summary

They call it "professional" yet the system appears aimed at a single company. For example you HAVE to input an email address in your "profile", which isn't much use if you're like me and will be creating documents for clients.

(You can over-ride this though, because later if asks if you want to use your profile or not)

My impression of the templates available was that while imaginative and reasonable quality, they seem a little dated and stale.

The standard software is about $70 but if you want anything interesting such as white paper, that will cost you another $20 - and no guarantee they'll work, as the website says they are for 3.0 only

The site also makes no mention of Windows 7, which is a bit offputting.

Overall I think this was probably a good product that has been allowed to wither. I'm not willing to risk the cash on the off-chance the white paper templates will be good and will work with this version and will then work with Windows 7. They probably would be OK but the site appears neglected, which raises the question of support as well. Have to give it a miss I'm afraid
