USER REVIEWS

An Office Suite Application Upgrade for Premium and Enterprise Users

By Daren Garius

On Wednesday, September 3, 2014

I've been using this office suite program for years, and this is the first time I'll make a review for this app. Here are some of the new features I tested upon using this new version of proprietary office suite. The graphical user interface is enhanced including keyboard shortcuts and lesser mouse clicks. There are tons of graphical options like background removal tool, open type typographic feature, search feature for social networking services like LinkedIn, and Quick step feature, etc. Lately, I've been trying to use open source office suite to see the difference between the proprietary and the free of cost office suite application. The result is almost the same, and the proprietary is much more reliable than the free of cost office suites in terms of formatting. In conclusion, this office suite application is very useful for premium customers. Commodity customers may settle with earlier versions of this office suite tool to save money for a much bigger upgrade.

Pros

  • Ribbon interface intensifies consistency and usability
  • Excellent graphic tools include video editing and image enhancement

Cons

  • Crashes during trial and testing

Microsoft Office 2010: Most stable productivity suite in MS Office line to date!

By Elizabeth Tweetee

On Tuesday, June 9, 2015

With a handful of tools to fulfil every office need, MS Office distinguishes itself as a user-friendly software suite from the pool of productivity packages flooded mostly by mediocre less intuitive products. New releases for Windows platform come out every three years with noteworthy new additions and bug fixes. Let’s check out what’s concealed in the 2010 version!

MS Office 2010 boasts revamped version of Ribbon menu interface, which was experimentally included in Office 2007. The outcome is added stability and intuitiveness. It looks pretty cool too! Menu categories are represented just like tabs in web browser. It lets you access almost anything with two or three clicks.

This version of Office provides much better PDF creation and editing. It seems like the developer has tweaked performance without giving up efficiency. It’s real-time grammar and spelling checker gives me confidence while typing. It will be a boon for DTP workers.

HAVE DOUBTS ABOUT LICENSING? PLEASE READ THIS PARAGRAPH!

MS Office is a commercial product. PHPNuke is providing its usage time restricted free trial version. If you’re willing to activate MS Office, purchase its key from Amazon or some other reliable store. You can activate the software by simply inputting serial number on key card to the pop up on software starting. If you cannot afford its Key, just reinstall the software when trial period ends. Note that either I or the company don’t promote software cracking as it is falls under Cyber Crimes.

Verdict:

Office 2010 is one of the most stable and reliable versions of the suite ever produced. If you’re to migrate from Office 2010 to 2013, keep these in mind that Office 2013 differs only in some other advanced tools. This review is created entirely using MS Word 2010, a component of Office 2010. Overall, I recommend it! I rate it 8.9 out of 10!

Pros

  • Enhanced stability and bug fixes
  • A number of useful productivity softwares
  • Ribbon interface is tidy and intuitive
  • Real time error monitoring gives confidence

Cons

  • Correct sentences are sometimes spotted as wrong ones

By Sam James

On Tuesday, August 11, 2015

MS 2010 is a productivity suite that you can create and work ant types of document either at home and work. I must say that it has a complete advanced and helpful tool that makes this program more productive. We all know that Word, Excel and PowerPoint are the popular programs here in this Office suite. However, there are also other programs in this suite that are useful; OneNote, Publisher and Access, though they are not famous as those other three. What I loved about Microsoft Office 2010 is its versatility, and it has an intuitive and easy to use interface. In addition, it can even export your text documents into PDF with its Acrobat Pro incorporation. If you are an office staff or just a regular student who needs to finish a written report or any documentation projects, you can use some of the programs in this suite to make your work much faster and easier. However, this software is a trial version, so you can only make use of this one in a limited time but it is worth to try.

Pros

  • It has an intuitive interface
  • It has a lot of useful tools

Cons

  • It is only a trial version

Review

Microsoft Office 2010 is a productivity suite which integrates office tools for personal and professional use. It includes a wide range of basic and advanced features that can help you to perform any task in a fast, efficient and productive way. Microsoft Office 2010 has come with renovated and new features for all the applications included in this package. Among Word, PowerPoint and Excel this pack integrates some other utilities such as Outlook, Access, Publisher or OneNote. Other programs such as Microsoft Visio 2010 are not included in this package but in more advanced office suites.

All the programs come with a renovated ribbon interface and a backstage view which are particularly of this version. However, one of the most interesting features of Microsoft Office 2010 is the online live collaboration feature, which allows the different users to work on the same document simultaneously.
