Functional, stable and still the numer 1 word processor

First of all, the elephant in the room… Yes, you need an Office 365 subscription. R900 isn’t that bad since you can use up to 5 devices, which is R180 per device, which is pretty reasonable especially for a family.

The software itself is actually pretty decent, I am no Microsoft fan, but I have to hand it to them their Microsoft Office suite is hard to beat. I have tried switching to some of the alternatives, but I find myself back at MS Office every time.

It isn’t fair to give this product 1 star because of the subscription, many software companies have adopted this model and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. This is a 5 star product as it serves its intended purpose extremely well.

Beyond awful. A total bait and switch. You need an Office subscription for R900. I dont want a long-term marriage to a greedy husband, I just want to buy Word and be left alone. Absolute rubbish. Absolute crap and their promised Cloud Based One-Drive is AN EVEN BIGGER PILE OF TRASH. DO NOT BE FOOLED. YOUR WORK WILL NOT GET BACKED UP ON THE CLOUD. Their 'cloud' solution only saves documents with naming conventions they approve, so unless you want to go throuh and rename ALL YOUR DOCUMENT names, it wont get loaded onto their cloud. This is Absolute rubbish. Wish I had read reviews before purchasing. Hope you're smarter than me. Don't get this. Find a work-around, there are ways.
