On the down side, Zoho Writer failed to performed flawlessly. In more than one occasions Zoho Writer could not export our documents to the desired format and could not display all existing documents from the first or second try. On top of that, the interface seemed to be unresponsive at times due to the cloud storage system that can really slow down the application.
