When it comes to offline word processing, the first service which comes in our mind is Microsoft Office Suite which we are using from many years. But buying Microsoft Office Suite is an expensive deal for normal users.
That time, Google Docs comes into rescue which offers online word processing and other office tasks. Even all my word processing is getting done by the web office apps.
There are lot of other users also prefer to work in web apps for several reasons. First, you can access your documents from anywhere, share with others to view and edit, import – export of other documents are easy.
The most important advantage of using these web apps : they are simple and free to use. There are some other web-based alternative of Google Docs which are available on the Internet with some great features and looks.
So, in this article, I am gathering 4 free online apps available as alternative for Google Docs. All these apps offers free and chargeable subscriptions according to your need.
