It has three programs incorporated into the software which include a writer, a presentation tool and a spreadsheet tool. These could easily be compared with the likes of Word, PowerPoint and Excel. They allow users to word process, create presentations, but also to process data, including data input.
Kingsoft has been producing software for over 20 years and it certainly shows, as the user interface is one of the easiest to use of all the office suites currently available. Innovative features have been incorporated to help users work in a more efficient manner. For instance, there is a paragraph adjustment tool, alongside a tabbed feature that works on a multiple basis. Of course, it also includes things such as a spell checker, word counter and a converter for PDFs.
