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.

"good, free version is cripled."

May 07, 2015  |  By vl1969

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 9.1.0.4758

Pros

it works, it works well over all even in free version.
have lots of features, bells and wistles

Cons

free version is crippled in a very annoying and not friendly way.
the most needed by many user feature aka print, adds watermark to the document.
how is it free product if the most needed and basic feature is disabled?

Summary

if you do not need to print or export to PDF it will work for you.
otherwise look for something else.

"Always on WPS Office"

May 06, 2015  |  By cracktech1

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 9.1.0.4758

Pros

Have used this for Android and is working great. For PC version still on WPS 2014 and not going to upgrade to WPS 2015. The 2014 version is working fine for all my basic needs.I used exposrt to PDF option on almost all of my documents which are Instructions manual flawlessly.

Cons

None so far as WPS 2014 is working.

Summary

Based on comments about WPS 2015 I dont think I will upgrade it to that version. Why upgrade when a lot of people are still on MS Office 2010 and it is working fine till today. Just because it has that "2015" badge and we are suckers for wanting to upgrade.

"flypaper application"

April 23, 2015  |  By haplessdupe

 |  Version: WPS Office 2015 9.1.0.4758

Pros

The cons outweigh any pros.

Cons

I am not able to uninstall this program. I have contacted WPS for assistance. Of course, I have attempted to manually uninstall the program. I believe that this program is invasive and violates privacy.if WPS downloads

Summary

Be wary of WPS downloads.

"Write review 30 DAYS AFTER installing this trialware!"

April 23, 2015  |  By rasheed12824

 |  Version: WPS Office 2015 9.1.0.4758

Pros

Used to be a good word processor with almost everything average users need.

Cons

Unlike Kingsoft Office, WPS 2014, or the beta versions, WPS 2015 is a very basic package which will remove a lot of the useful features most users need AFTER 30 DAYS!

You will be very impressed in the beginning, but wait 30 days and then try to use it. You'll find that you are better off with Microsoft Word Starter that comes pre-installed on many computers.

Summary

Stick to Libre Office or Open Office which gradually keep getting better and will remain free and open.

"Excellent, lightweight, fully featured office suite."

January 11, 2015  |  By cassimg

 |  Version: Kingsoft Office Free 2013 9.1.0.4550

Pros

With excellent word processor, spreadsheet and presentation applications it does everything most users would require it to do. (power users excepted). Its totally free and unrestricted. Has several skins to closely match current and previous versions of MS office. Opens all versions of MS office and can also save in the newer docx and xlsx formats. Very small footprint and very quick compared with Apache Office, Libre office and MS office. Much better option than Kingsoft's new but extremely limited WPS Office 2014 Home Basic edition - otherwise expect to pay $3/mth for WPS Home Premium 2014 to get the same free features in this free edition.

Cons

Not much really unless you need to create and edit VBS/macros where you will need to upgrade to Kingsoft Office 2013 Professional or try Open Office instead.
If you require a free database program as well then install Open Office.
If you require a good free email client try "Postbox Express" or "eM client".

Summary

All in all, a terrific very capable office suite that will satisfy all but the most fastidious office users. Kingsoft Office Free 2013 can only be compared in terms of features, (small) size and performance with Softmaker FreeOffice (check it out) which is even more feature rich, however cannot save/export to the newer docx and xlsx formats.

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

January 10, 2015  |  By cassimg

 |  Version: WPS Office 2014 Beta 3 9.1.0.4758

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Summary

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 9.1.0.4758

Pros

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.

Cons

Can't think of any, really.

Summary

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 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.

Updated on Nov 28, 2014

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.

"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.
