\u00a0OfficeSuite is one of the top Microsoft Office alternatives in the market right now. Today, we take a look at this useful little app and dive into its features. Let\u2019s go!\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\nA Brief History Of OfficeSuite\r\n \r\n\r\nOfficeSuite was developed by MobiSystems. Released in 2004, OfficeSuite was at first an app exclusive to Palm OS. It featured the company\u2019s productivity tools (Quick Spell, Quick Check, and Quick Write). MobiSystems released a Symbian-compatible version the following year.\r\n\r\nUp until 2009, OfficeSuite was used as a document reader. Electronics giant Sony had different plans. The Japanese firm inquired about a full-fledged office application suite from MobiSystems. They asked for results in 12 weeks. MobiSystems didn\u2019t back down from the challenge, producing the newly developed OfficeSuite. Sony preinstalled the app on all their mobile phones on all their Google-based devices in 2009.\r\n\r\nOfficeSuite would release an iOS version in 2013 and would debut on Microsoft Windows in 2016. Google would award OfficeSuite with its Android Excellence Award in 2018.\r\n\r\nWhat are you waiting for? Download this app for free on your mobile devices\u00a0today!\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\nWhat Is OfficeSuite?\r\n\r\n\r\nOfficeSuite is a great productivity tool suite for your Android and iOS devices. Similar to Office, this app offers several office tools. These include word processing, spreadsheet, email tools, presentation, and PDF editor and reader.\r\n\r\nThe app is available as a free download on the iOS App Store You can upgrade the app via purchasing a license for it. In-app purchases are also available, for added utility tools.\u00a0\r\n\r\nOfficeSuite licenses go for $29.99 a year for a personal license, which gives you access to the full spectrum of useful features for OfficeSuite. A big plus is the inclusion of 50 gigabytes worth of cloud storage with MobiSystem Drive. A personal license allows one user to have the app on two mobile devices and one computer.\r\n\r\nA group license costs $49.99 annually. This license allows 3 users to use the app on 1 computer and 2 mobile devices separately. Just like the personal license, the group license comes with a 50GB cloud storage solution.\u00a0\r\n\r\nOfficeSuite also offers a PC-only lifetime license.

Let\u2019s take a gander at what you can expect from the app.\r\n\r\n \r\nCross-platform compatibility\r\nOfficeSuite\u2019s app is compatible with Android and iOS devices. The app also works across multiple file-formats. The most common file formats and languages are supported across each version of OfficeSuite.\r\n\r\n \r\nPDF Integration\r\nYou can convert PDFs to Word, Excel or ePub compatible formats. Users can also scan documents using your mobile phone\u2019s camera. OfficeSuite also supports certification and markup. This includes digital signatures support, permissions management, text to PDF, and document annotations.\r\n\r\n \r\nDocument Password Protection\r\nYou can now secure documents by adding a password to documents you edit or create, keeping prying eyes away from your docs.\r\n\r\n \r\nCloud Storage\r\n\r\n\r\nMobiSystems offers its Cloud storage solution. The app also works well with other Cloud solutions like DropBox, Google Drive, Amazon Drive, OneDrive, and SugarSync. You can also share documents by way of email, Bluetooth, and messaging app.\u00a0\r\n\r\n \r\nTracking Edits and Changes\r\nThis is a pretty sweet feature. If you're working in an office environment, documents can go through several revisions. Now, changes to a document can be tracked easily. Comments can be added in a snap, making collaboration on documents as easy as pie.\u00a0\r\n\r\n \r\nChats\r\nAnother useful feature for business and enterprise users is the Chat feature. This feature helps make workplace collaboration even easier. Keeping in touch with co-workers is a breeze with this feature.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\nImpressions\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWe took OfficeSuite out for a spin, checked out a few features, so here are our impressions so far:\r\n\r\nThe first thing users will notice is the clean and well-designed user interface. Bringing the app up displays a screen that allows you to select what type of document you wish to work on. It displays options for text documents, spreadsheets, and presentation slides. Simple, but very effective.\r\n\r\nCloud storage integration is well done, with documents opened via cloud showing up in the Recent Documents section. Opening a document also displays Cloud options, a good sign for users who save most of their documents on a cloud.\r\n\r\nAnother plus in our books is the inclusion of a pretty good file browser. The browser lets users select a default location for their documents the first time it starts up.\u00a0\r\n\r\nWorking with images is a bit iffy, and could use a few more improvements. One difficulty we noticed was in resizing images. The new version is still head and shoulders above older versions from OfficeSuite.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\nIn Conclusion\r\nOfficeSuite gives users a lot of bang for their buck. It is an excellent alternative to using Microsoft Office. It has great features and flexible price points for its features. Best of all, you can get its basic version for free.\r\n\r\nIf you need an excellent productivity app that covers all your needs and fits your budget, then MobiSoft\u2019s OfficeSuite is definitely for you.
