Polaris Office is a free suite of office tools, fulfilling the same function as packages like Microsoft Office. Polaris users can open, edit and create files on desktop and mobile platforms, including files created by other software such as Microsoft Word. Although this collection of apps is free, if you use it frequently you'll be required to get a paid version or be limited to viewing documents.
Features and tools
Compared to some other office software collections, Polaris is relatively simple. It's easy to use, and works equally well on mobile and desktop platforms. Features such as document sharing are simple to access, and you can connect your Polaris documents to cloud storage services like Google Drive or Dropbox easily. Polaris also offers a cloud storage service of its own. Although the paid upgrade is useful, if you mainly deal with text documents and don't open or edit large files frequently, you may never cross the paid-account threshold.
The basics at a reasonable price
If you frequently use the advanced features of Microsoft Office, Polaris Office probably isn't for you. It's very focused in its design, supporting the most commonly-used features of its more expensive competitor. For everyday use, however, it offers a good range of functions in an easy-to-use package at prices that range from free to still very affordable.
