Software Overview

Planamesa NeoOffice is an office suite similar to Microsoft Office but developed specifically for macOS. The program descended from and is closely related to LibreOffice and Apache OpenOffice.

The NeoOffice suite offers several applications that allow you to create and edit text documents, drawings, diagrams, presentations, and spreadsheets. It supports a wide array of office productivity file formats. Most notably, the suite can read and write most Microsoft Office XML file formats, such as .DOCX, .XLSX, and .PPTX.

As mentioned earlier, NeoOffice is similar to LibreOffice and OpenOffice, but is developed specifically for macOS. NeoOffice includes the use of the macOS “Gatekeeper” feature to protect you from installing malicious software, macOS “Versions” feature to allow you to restore previous versions of your document, and macOS text highlighting behavior to give you the same feel as other macOS applications.

Planamesa NeoOffice is a competent office suite. It is compatible with many industry-standard file formats and runs natively in macOS. However, NeoOffice is no longer offered as a free download (it requires purchase) and both Apache OpenOffice and LibreOffice can now be run natively in macOS. So if you are looking for a free alternative to Microsoft Office for your Mac, OpenOffice or LibreOffice are better choices.
