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.


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.


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.

"WPS No longer a Free Office Suite - Now from $3/mth"

January 10, 2015  |  By cassimg

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 3


Potentially a fully featured Office suite that is fully compatible with all versions of MS Office. Unlike many other office suites WPS Office can export to MS Office 2007/2010 formats .xlsx, .xlsm, docx, .dotx,.docm,.dotm, ppt. It has some nice unique features and 3 different skins from which to choice to suit your familiarity with current or older versions of MS office.


The WPS version here is just an old incomplete beta test file. Not very useful. Many features/selections are deliberately missing. You must purchase a subscription to WPS Office 2014 (minimum $3/mth) to obtain all the advertised features. The WPS Office Home Free 2014 edition is nothing more than a 30 day trial of the $3/mth WPS Home Premium edition hence no longer free in the same context as Kingsoft Free Office 2013.


If you go to the WPS web site it says "download WPS office for free" but that is just a limited 30 day free trial. The download file is deceptively named "WPS office home free" but there is nothing free about it at all. When the 30 day trial expires many important features become disabled and you are constantly prompted to upgrade to the WPS Home Premium edition @ $3/mth. My advice is to avoid WPS Office all together and stay with or search for Kingsoft Free Office 2013 on Google which is genuinely free and fully featured except for the (pro version) macro/VBA functionality. Alternatively try Softmaker FreeOffice which is more feature rich and might suit more demanding users better. Both have minimal footprints and are much faster compared with Open Office and MS Office and both open MS Office 2007/2010 documents with ease. Supposedly Softmaker FreeOffice does this better. However only Kingsoft Free Office 2013 can save as docx/xlsx.

"Everything you want"

October 25, 2014

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 3


It's a clone of MS Office, which means you don't need to learn to use any new software. Since it's free, you don't need to worry about registration, serial no's, and how many computers you can use it on. It's also much lighter than MS Office, so opens faster and uses less resources. I've been using it for over a year and had no problems at all.


Can't think of any, really.


Some people talk about spyware and communists... personally I haven't experienced any of this, and have up to date antivirus and anti-malware programs that would detect this. I don't think the Chinese govt wants to spy on my computer, unless they like playing my video games and listening to my music. Maybe that's a good reason to spy on me though...

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

October 17, 2014  |  By pickycustomer

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 3


Fantastic MS Office clone...really!


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!)


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.

Please do not attack personalities.

1) Read the EULA, how else do they know what projects you have done using WPS Free?

2) Have you noticed the "start page" opens in your browser?

3) LibreOffice (The Document Foundation) will send you their code in its entirety. LibreOffice doesn't hide their code. As a matter of fact you can even alter it to suit your needs.

4) I know the USA spies on our internet usage. What worries me is when a communist country does.

Updated on Dec 28, 2014

Edit: Disregard 1-4 above. I have re-read the EULA and there is nothing about right of creative ownership. Nor have I found any evidence of any spyware of any kind. If I could I would change my rating from one star to five stars. This in one powerful office suite. If you want a MS compatible office suite look no more. WPS Office Free is one solid suite.
