Kingsoft WPS Office is a cross-platform office suite used to create and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The office suite is similar to Microsoft Office and includes four main productivity tools that can be accessed in one single module:

  • Writer - Similar to Microsoft Word
  • Presentation - Similar to Microsoft PowerPoint
  • Spreadsheets - Similar to Microsoft Excel
  • PDF Editor - Create a PDF file from scratch or from an existing file or open, edit, save, compress, or convert a PDF file

Writer is WPS Office's word processor that supports various documents such as .WPS, .WPT, .DOCX, .DOC, .DOTX, and .RTF documents. You can create documents from scratch or choose from one of their many templates. Writer features rich text editing and document formatting capabilities and comes with several tools including spell check, word count, thesaurus, and add-ins. Writer also supports .PDF files, enabling you to edit, sign, split and merge, or convert them to DOC or DOCX files.

Presentation is WPS Office's application for creating presentations. It supports .DPS, .DPT, .PPT, and .PPTX files and allows you to create a presentation from scratch or from one of Presentation's templates. You can design a slide by applying themes, choosing fonts and colors, and inserting images, video, audio, charts, tables, equations, and shapes. You can also add transitions, make speaker notes, and rehearse slide timings for presentation purposes.

Spreadsheets is WPS Office's program for working with spreadsheets that supports .ET, .ETT, .XLS, .XLSX, and .CSV files. The application comes with several invoice, tracker, budget, calendar, business, and finance spreadsheet templates to give you a jump start. You can insert a variety of charts, shapes, symbols, equations, and tables. Spreadsheets also enables you to insert a variety of financial, logical, date and time, lookup and reference, math and trig, and text functions.

WPS Office is available for free but can be purchased as a premium or business version with more capabilities and cloud storage space (free version comes with 1 GB). It is also available as an app for Android devices. The suite is a quality alternative to Microsoft Office that supports popular Office XML formats and provides an interface similar to Office. Also, Kingsoft WPS Office is available for free, which is rare for the functionality that it provides and makes it a good option for Windows, macOS, and Linux users looking to create, view, edit, and save PDF files and popular office formats.
