Cloud-based productivity suite with features similar to Microsoft Office.

Polaris Office is a productivity suite that lets you create, edit and manage a wide range of documents. It lets you work with documents, spreadsheets, presentations and even PDF files. What sets this program apart from other tools in its category is its cloud storage and collaboration functions. You can easily store your documents remotely so that they can be retrieved from any device and work on projects together with other Polaris Office users.

All the Productivity Programs You Need

Polaris Office is a popular program that is used by more than 80 million individuals around the world. There are versions of it for Windows, macOS, iOS and Android. Just like many other office suites, it lets you open and work with documents in a wide variety of formats, including Microsoft Office Word, PowerPoint, Excel, ODF, TXT and PDF.

As a full office suite, Polaris Office is made up of several applications with their own functionality. The latest Windows version gives you:

  • Word - Word processor similar in appearance and features to MS Word.
  • Sheet - A tool that lets you work with advanced spreadsheets.
  • Slide - Simple, yet powerful presentation tool that works like PowerPoint.
  • PDF - App that allows you to view, create and modify documents in PDF format.

Cloud Storage and Sharing Made Easy

Polaris Office is an app that places a lot of emphasis on cloud-based features. While you can still save your documents locally, the program gives you many options to store them in the cloud. It's compatible with a variety of third-party cloud services, such as Google Drive and Dropbox. You can retrieve and save documents to and from these services right from Polaris Office.

The developers of Polaris Office have also made their own cloud storage service called Polaris Drive. It provide excellent storage and sharing features. You can even use it to collaborate on projects, with several people working on the same document together.

Free Version Has Some Limitations

While Polaris Office is an excellent productivity suite, one thing that will disappoint some users is that the free version is rather limited. You can only use it to create 60 MB of documents per month, after which you'll be limited to simply being able to view files without changing them. It also lacks many features found in the paid version, such as PDF editing, document annotation and the ability to use WordArt effects in your documents. In order to unlock Polaris Office's full functionality, you'll need to buy a monthly subscription.
