Crashes More Often

Have been using it for 6 months. Sometimes, it does not load my documents and crashes often.

Very Good and Promising

Zoho as it claims it is indeed a Business Operating System.

I am using it since a year now and have been very satisifed with the way it functions.

Very Secure and Transparent.

Keep up the Good Work.

I have high appreciation for the eco system Zoho has created. CRM, accounting etc. Was planning to use Zoho Apps for the SME I am running.

But Writer is a huge disappointment as a native. Cumbersome to start, slow to load. I am unpleasantly surprised that Zoho has launched such a product.
