LibreOffice is the first app that should come to your mind if you want a free word processor, slideshow maker, spreadsheet, database manager and basic vector drawing creator.

Intuitive word processor, spreadsheet and drawing app

Moreover, LibreOffice is a free and open-source application suite that offers a word-processor (Writer), presentations and graphics applications (Impress and Draw), a spreadsheet app (Calc) along with database, mathematical (Math) and other useful tools.

Installing LibreOffice is a very simple task and the the entire process requires a simple drag and drop action of the app from the mounted disk image to your Mac's Applications folder.

Compatible with a wide variety of file formats

The support for the latest Microsoft Office formats in addition to its native ODT format along with the cost of the app makes LibreOffice the ideal solution for students and organizations that require the use of open formats and open-source apps.

In addition, LibreOffice is capable of opening legacy documents create by old Windows and MS-DOS applications. The graphics module also helps you open vector graphics in Visio or CorelDraw formats.

Comprehensive collection of office tools

From LibreOffice's main window you will be able to choose between six different office management tools such as: Text document, Spreadsheet, Presentation, Drawing Database and Formula.

If you are familiar with Microsoft Office or Apple's iWork you will be able to recognize most functions and features. Writer is the equivalent to Microsoft Word and Apple's Pages, Calc is synonymous with Excel and Numbers while Impress is similar to Keynote and PowerPoint.

Furthermore, LibreOffice handles pretty well all documents with simple formatting, although you will encounter some compatibility issues with documents with more complex formatting and graphics.

As a downside, on occasion, when we tried to work with various documents created using other applications, LibreOffice crashed unexpectedly especially when trying to open a document, format the text or change an option.

LibreOffice is not a better alternative to Microsoft Office or Apple's iWork, but it might be the ideal solution for users who need a free solution or have to work with odd formats or legacy documents.
