Though not quite as robust, this productivity suite makes a decent alternative to the ubiquitous Microsoft office. Most average users won't have a problem operating both TextMaker and PlanMaker, which look very similar to Word and Excel respectively. Both of these utilities have all the features you might expect, though it may take a bit of patience to get used to the different arrangement of them. Also, when we tried to launch DataMaker and Basic Script from the toolbar in the word-processing program, we got error messages, which is a bit discomforting. And if you're looking for an office suite with a built in e-mail client or PowerPoint functionality, you won't find it here. Still, if you seek a cheaper alternative to Microsoft Office and only work with Excel and Word, there's no reason not to give Ashampoo Office 2005 a chance.
The new, modernized Ashampoo Office 2016 is fully compatible with the current Microsoft Office 2013. This fast and compact office suite comes with word processor, spreadsheet and presentation applications and convinces with intuitive handling and a vast feature set. New features in Textmaker make creating text documents easier, more logical and versatile while Planmaker now offers advanced features such as pivot tables, conditional formatting and improved clarity and readability. Stunning multimedia presentations with animation, sounds and videos are now possible with Presentations. Full compatibility with Microsoft Office ensures seamless interoperability between users of both office suites.
