Editors' Note:

Editors' Review

+ is the free alternative to Microsoft Office. Even on a Mac, Open mostly feels and looks like a Windows application, but Mac users should have no trouble getting up and running with this multifeatured app.

With Open Office, you can create the same types of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations available in Microsoft Office and even save them with the MS Office extensions such as .doc or .ppt. also has its own file extensions, which can't be opened with their Microsoft Office counterparts, so you'll need to make sure you remember to save with the appropriate extension so MS Office users can read them. This is made much easier with the Preferences Panel, which lets you select the default file type for documents you create.

During our testing, the application performed very well; it handles MS Office documents with the same ease as its own native documents. And you don't need to be an advanced Office user to find all the features you used in Microsoft's suite. All the basic editing tools are available at a glance, so you can start using the application from the first launch.

Overall, is a very useful and powerful app for document editing and reading. We recommend this free app for any-level user who wants a less expensive way to create files and share them with or Microsoft Office users.

"Great Product and it's free!"

March 09, 2013  |  By Lou Codella

 |  Version: Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1


Works as well as Microsoft Office without the price.


I haven't found any yet.


If you need office software, save your money and get Open Office. Use the money that you save and buy a better computer.

"Would be great product if it cost - free - no brainer!"

January 15, 2013  |  By mikisdad

 |  Version: Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1


Clean and intuitive interface. Can accomplish all everyday tasks without problems. Not bloated and .... it works! I had no problems on either Win 7 Ultimate on an HP Pavilion or on Mac OSX


I couldn't see any.


Highly recommended as a general purpose home /school / office application - rarely would the average user need anything more. Great value and worthy of support.
