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.
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.
