Editors' review

One of our favorite free office suites, Kingsoft Office, is now WPS Office 2014, with an all-new look and new tools. It's still widely compatible with other office suites, tools, and document formats, including Microsoft Word. WPS Office bundles a powerful word processor (WPS Writer), a spreadsheet tool (WPS Spreadsheets), and a presentation manager (WPS Presentation) with a variety of support utilities. WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 works across many platforms, including mobile devices.

Pros

New look, familiar feel: An updated (and customizable) look borrows features and design elements from Web browsers and word processors to create an attractive, efficient workspace in each tool.

Templates: Free templates are available online for PowerPoint, Office, Education, Business, Reports, Resume, Charts, and more.

Visible means of support: Tips and guides, a support center, shortcut keys, and other resources are, in most cases, either front and center or a click away.

Awesome powers: The new and improved WPS Spreadsheets supports "one million rows."

Mobile support: WPS Office 2014's mobile versions let you use the same apps across different platforms.

Cons

Good, but: Users expecting a free version of Microsoft Office won't be disappointed by WPS Office 2014, but it isn't an exact duplicate.

Bottom Line

WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 is an excellent productivity suite, particularly because it does so much for free. There's no denying it's not Microsoft Office, however close it comes, but if price is a major consideration, WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 is an excellent option.

    "Best Microsoft Office clone around! <br />And it's free!"

    July 23, 2014   |   By pickycustomer

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    Perfect for home and school.

    Cons

    None found here.

    Summary

    If you need an office suite which is basically an MS Office clone, WPS Office Free is for you. WPS opens and saves projects to MS formats without any issues. WPS opens to a start screen which contains links to templates, an online help manual and tips on how the user can use WPS to its fullest. WPS has a small HDD footprint and uses little resources. WPS has a tabbed interface which makes switching between multiple projects extremely simple. Whether you are composing a letter, term paper, research paper, spreadsheets or a power point presentation WPS Free is absolutely ideal.

    I have done my best with every tool I can think of and have yet to find any spyware, malware, backdoor trojans or "any" form of virus in WPS Free. I ran all these tests because with WPS being from China I was, to say the least, a bit wary. Nothing found...no harm.

    Bottom line, you can't go wrong with WPS Free. I highly recommend using WPS Office Free. Just download, install and start using this light, yet powerful office suite.

    "Made in China : Beware"

    July 22, 2014   |   By narayan_v

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    It saves to docx,thus the file size in reduced. Nice clean and fresh feeling to interface.

    Cons

    Made in china, Can be subverted later or right upon install or updates. Make it a spying tool of Chinese hackers or worse the state. Just don't trust it enough.

    Saving to .doc format makes it unreadable in open office and ms office. So it will not work.

    Summary

    Install at your own risk and wisdom or lack thereoff
