Microsoft Word is perhaps the best Word processor for Windows computers. With its sleek interface, integration of table tools, various formatting tools, and various other composing options, the application has set a high bar. For a long time Word was unavailable to Mac computers – something which has now changed.
Now you can get Office for Mac that is basically a suite of Office products that includes Excel, PowerPoint, etc. But the suite costs at least more than $100 – a high price to pay if all you want to do is use a competent text editor. Thankfully a competent and inexpensive alternative is available that not only provides you with Word processing features but also enables you to take full advantage of the Mac retina display. This alternative is a tool called Word by ICSOFT.
Word by ICSOFT is a desktop application for computers that are running Mac OS X 10.6 or later. The app is sized at nearly 13 MB and is not a strain on your system’s resources. This visually appealing application provides you with an impressive array of Word processing features that will be appreciated by all Mac computer owners.
Firstly, the app takes advantage of the Retina display and enables you to enjoy the application’s visuals while using it. Standard Word processing features are of course present – various font and formatting tools, spelling and grammar checker, editing multiple documents simultaneously, the ability to create and edit tables, bullet lists and special characters, finding text and replacing it, multiple zoom and view settings, auto-saving as you edit the document, and anchor and text-wrapping tools for effective image insertion.
Furthermore, your work can be saved in various formats without any loss of data or formatting. Supported formats include ITP, DOC, PDF, ODT, TXT, and RTF.
Word by ICSOFT is available from the Mac app store for $9.99 but the app’s developers have generously offered 10 free licenses to the 10 MakeUseOf readers who share this post on Facebook and comment on this post..
