    "Gone are the days when one needed to have the docs in one place to access and transfer with something needing a license. With google docs, I have my docs on the go and anyone I sent to can open and edit them. With so many supported formats, I have not missed microsoft office in a long time."

    "Zoho Docs is perfect for my company being that we all work from home. It conveniently connects our documents to our own shared account over the cloud. We can see when the latest work was done, and view it from anywhere!"

    "Word processing, spreadsheets, visual presentations, graphs and charts, even databases and math formula editing- LibreOffice does it all! I have found LibreOffice to be user-friendly, modern, and dynamic. It has elevated my school work to a whole new level and now that I am in my first "real" job, I finding ways to use LibreOffice daily. My coworkers have taken an interest and several had already made the switch to LibreOffice. What's more, LibreOffice is open source, which means it is constantly being improved to meet its' users needs. How cool is that?"

    "Open Office is nice because not only is a very secure and reliable alternative but it's also free and very easy to learn and become attached to for your personal or business work relations. It has all the basic functions of Microsoft Office and also has it's own unique and nice features."

    "If you don't want to pay money to Micro$oft for office software, WPS Office is a great alternative. It is free, has an intuitive web-like interface, and saves documents to the cloud, which is super convenient when working from multiple computers. Added bonus: PDF tools, which MS Office does not have."

    "I would use SSuite Office Premium HD+ as it offers many features with a low price. It also is very small as a file and this makes it more appealing. Also there is no need for Java or .Net in this suite office."

    "As a territorial sales rep, I am constantly on the go and I depend heavily on my mobile devices since I am rarely in the office. The Thinkfree Online program has been a big boost to my productivity. I can now view my Office Suite documents and even make changes in them without having to open the document up in Microsoft Office. So I can be nearly anywhere and still get my documents edited and submitted on time."

    "I don't have the expensive Mircrosoft Office and I was looking for some good alternative. OfficeSuite + PDF Editor has been the best choice I found, an app I suggest everyone to download."

    "I was really surprised at how powerful this software is. I tried it without any particular expectation and was really taken with how efficient and user-friendly the whole thing was. You can do presentations, all sorts of documents similar to Word docs, you can do spreadsheets... It's very versatile, it's perfectly compatible with Microsoft Office, and it's not a bulky addition. I ended up being positively giddy at the freedom it offered me."

    "This product seems like it is the best solution for me so I do not have to pay out all the money for Microsoft Office. Now that Office is not coming free with new computers it is nice to have an alternative that you can use. Everything is costing way too much anymore to get what we used to for free. So glad to see an alternative to Office that seems to offer so much."

    "I needed a better alternative to heavy loaded Microsoft Word app. I needed something lighter, and more efficient but is just as powerful. I am not a fan of cloud word processors, so I searched google and this was the best solution I could find. It might even be a little better than Word because it works on my Android phone as well."
