5 Best Free Microsoft Word Alternatives



iWork’s Pages

iWork’s Pages

Apple has been in the free Microsoft Word alternatives game for a while. With its platform in the minority, the company committed to creating its own apps for productivity and media creation. iWork's Pages word processor is an adequate replacement for Microsoft Word on Macs.

Like Word, it also has mobile applications for the iPhone and iPad. A cloud version of the app lets you edit documents on any PC with a decent web browser installed. The different versions of Pages are linked together by iCloud, which is where Apple encourages you to save your documents for easy editing and sharing.

You don’t have to go searching for a download of Pages and the other iWork apps. Apple used to charge for access to iWork. It stopped in 2014. If you have a Mac, it’s already installed. You can also download it from the Mac App Store.

    Where is SSuite Office? They have been around for a long time and their software is absolutely excellent and most importantly, free!

    I’ve been using their software for a long time now and have never needed anything else. They even have an online office suite now. Much more convenient than one would think. It’s also not cloud based, so no login or accounts to create. Runs directly in your web browser, Now that is something no one else has.

    A front runner if not the best alternative out there. Check them out, you will not regret it. :-)
