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.

    "User Beware! <br />Made in China."

    October 17, 2014   |   By pickycustomer

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 3 9.1.0.4758

    Pros

    Fantastic MS Office clone...really!

    Cons

    Made in China.
    Spyware included at no extra cost.
    LibreOffice is a better choice.
    (No, I do not work for nor am I a fanboy. I just prefer LibreOffice!)

    Summary

    After reading the review by "Terry Gay" I checked out the EULA and he's right.
    Even though the USA does spy on internet usage, I have a bigger issue when it's
    a communist government doing the spying on me. The fact that everything you create using this software is by defacto property of the author (WPS) gives me the chills.
    Another bothersome issue is WPS Free is usable to the "administrator" only and not for everyone who uses the computer.

    My recommendation is to switch to LibreOffice which can do almost as much and
    often times even more and better than this piece of spyware. Oh, by the way LibreOffice can work with more formats than WPS Free.

    "WPS Office Beta 2 is great!"

    August 18, 2014   |   By Little Peppermint

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 2 9.1.0.4746

    Pros

    1.FREE!
    2.It supports French and you can easily switch languages between English and French.
    3.The coolest thing is "File Roaming". Log in to WPS Office with Google/Twitter/Facebook account, then the documents worked on PC can be continued on phones/tablets. But it seems that the mobile version is not ready...have to wait for some time.
    4. Good compatibility with MS Office.

    Cons

    1.WPS Office does not support multiple users on windows 8.
    2. You have to be careful to deselect the unwanted software when install.

    Summary

    WPS Office is completely compatible with MS Office and it is excellent enough to be the substitute of MS Office. Actually it is so easy to learn how to use WPS Office, which provides a brand new way to work anywhere and work anytime.
    I am strongly recommending this fantastic office suite to all of you.

    "Fantastic!"

    August 08, 2014   |   By Rateara

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 2 9.1.0.4746

    Pros

    -The look and feel
    Mostly everything plus it's free.
    One of the best alternatives to MS Office.

    Cons

    none so far, it gets the job done.

    Summary

    I had just updated to this beta version from Kingsoft Office 2013 and I am very pleased with how it looks and functions.
    Happy with the nice tidy themes, simple, clean with nothing to frown about.

    "Read the Eula and see if want to play their way."

    July 31, 2014   |   By Terry Gay

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 2 9.1.0.4746

    Pros

    Its a direct ripoff of MS Office 2010 in form and function.

    Cons

    The EULA plainly states that anything you create is the property of Kingsoft. This means they get any revenues legally if you should write anything for profit. This also begs the question - How do they know what you have written with their software unless they an embedded worm that sends them copies of everything you have written? This is worse than the NSA.

    Summary

    The fact that whatever you write is the property of the Chinese government should make you avoid this product as though it were infected with Ebola. I am not sure if the program also has an embedded worm that sends them everything on your computer. Such a worm would not be picked up by your anti-virus software. The risk is too great for accepting this software no matter how well they cloned Microsoft's property.

    "immediately installs browser redirects"

    July 27, 2014   |   By umlando-2009

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    nothing yet - trying desperately to delete unwanted registry entries

    Cons

    brand new computer, first d/l software...think I'll try a new open office solution - bad choice! WPS immediately installs browser redirects - all my tabs open to trovi.com, and they are multiplying. Seriously. First download.

    Summary

    Stay away unless you like browser redirects. Try Apache OO instead - they don't mess with you.

    "great &#38; free substitute for MS Office"

    July 26, 2014   |   By vetsense

    Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 1 9.1.0.4674

    Pros

    familiar interface, easy to use, no problems working with documents saved in MS programs

    Cons

    None that I've found

    Summary

    I've used Kingsoft Office for several years on my laptops, while I maintained MS Office on my desktop, and have had no problems switching between the two and (although other reviews seem worried about it) I've had no problems, junk, viruses, or spyware from their product, in spite of it being from China, LOL. I don't know what's behind the name change......maybe it's like Nissan going back to their original name once they'd gained acceptance under the "international" name.

    "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
