WPS Office (an acronym for Writer, Presentation and Spreadsheets,previously known as Kingsoft Office) is an office suite for Microsoft windows macros and Androiddeveloped by Zuhan based Chinese software developer Kingsoff WPS Office is a suite of software which is made up of three primary components: WPS Writer, WPS Presentation, and WPS Spreadsheet.
The personal basic version is free to use. A fully featured professional-grade version is also available for a subscription fee. WPS Office 2016 was released in 2016 As of 2019, the Linux version is developed and supported by a volunteer community rather than Kingsoft itselfIf you’re looking to spend a lot less without sacrificing features, there are compelling options available. Unless you’re a hardcore Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint jockey who frequently collaborates with others, it’s time to take a new breed of all-in-one Office clones for a spin.
All for one
WPS Office for Mac provides Microsoft-style word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations in a single native macOS application under 300MB in size.Unlike the popular suite of standalone applications united by corporate synergy, WPS Writer, Spreadsheets, and Presentation documents coexist within a single tabbed workspace. This approach keeps the screen free of window clutter when jumping between different document types, with the option to consolidate multiple documents of the same ilk into a split-screen view. Naturally, you can drag tabs into their own workspace as well.Otherwise, WPS Office faithfully mimics the look, feel, and features of Microsoft’s venerable software, although there’s no real-time collaboration. Writer isn’t quite as robust, with little things like contextual menu synonyms—many common words I looked up offered no suggestions at all. The app doesn’t do a great job accurately displaying bold text styling either, appearing only slightly heavier than normal even with standard fonts
Paying a premium
WPS Office doesn’t just ape the Microsoft experience. There’s also wide compatibility with over 50 document and image file formats. WPS faithfully opened existing documents with formatting and graphics intact, likewise saving files that open without issue in authentic Microsoft apps.Although WPS Office is free without ads, editing and search are disabled after the initial seven-day trial period. If you need to occasionally open or print Office-compatible documents this will suffice, but for only $4 per month (or $30 annually), WPS Premium unlocks all features, adding robust PDF editing, the ability to export images without watermarks, and 20GB of cloud storage (up to 1GB per document). That’s a good value, especially for individual users who don’t need the extra bells and whistles
