5-0 out of 5 stars In terms of value, best productivity suite available
Like some of the other reviewers, I'm rather surprised at the number of negative reviews that Appleworks has received. While it is true that Appleworks is not as powerful as Microsoft Office, it is much less expensive and clearly represents a better value. The word processer part of it (the part that most people will use) is more intuitive and easier to use than Microsoft Word. True, Word is more powerful; but it costs $350 and requires a manual to use. I have never needed to use a manual to use Appleworks. You have complete control of your documents and you don't have to summon up the help application to figure out how to do common tasks like formatting paragraphs or adding links. Those who have mastered the complexities of MS Word and who require its special features may not like Appleworks. But for the rest of us, it more than meets our needs.

Also, one thing more: I have never had any trouble with Appleworks' translators from cwk to word format. I'm not sure why so many people have reported having trouble with it. I translated an entire book from Appleworks to PC MS Word, preserving the formats and special lettering instructions without any trouble at all. In any case, this wouldn't be a problem if people would show more courtesy to non-MS users (Macs and Linux) and not insist on sending them doc formatted files. PDF and rtf are far better cross-platform alternatives.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's not to like?
Ok, I'm am sure that there are features in Word or Excel that some of you might use and the key word is might, but for the other 98% of us. Apple Works is a complete program that is full featured and easy to use. It can save and all of latest Microsoft Office file formats and that is half the battle most of the time with some of the attachments that I receive. Other than that I've been using it for about two months now and it has done everything that I have asked it to do and done it with ease. I have no problems with crashing or quiting unexpectedly under OS X. I start it and it runs and runs and runs. It's a great value even if just to open and looks at an Excel spreadsheet or Word doucument.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value Suite of Software
I have been using computer word processors extensively since 1986. In 2001, I switched from being primarily a PC user to being a Mac user. And Appleworks is one of the programs I use the most.

I cannot understand the reviews on this page which slam Appleworks (especially the OSX version) for not being compatible with MS Word. I covert files back and forth from PC to Mac with no problem whatsoever. The best printer I have access to is on a PC at work. I usually write documents at home, convert them to a MS Word document, and email them to myself at work. Then at work the next day I print them. No problem.

There seems to be one glitch if you save files as a rich text file. The translator doesn't know the following characters: " '

But if you save it as a MS Word for Windows 98, 2000, ME file, you don't have this problem.

Apple, keep up the good work. The average Joe or Jane should not have to pay hundreds upon hundreds of dollars to get a solid word processor.

1-0 out of 5 stars AppleWorks is crap
I have hoped and prayed for a Microsoft alternative. Unfortunately it is a Microsoft world, if you want to communicate with that world on a Mac use Office for Mac, it is brilliant. As much as I tried to move towards Works, I purchased it first, I could not, the spread sheet program in Works alone leaves you on a deserted island.

Save your headaches if you share any files than jump up to Office for Mac, however much that disgusts me to admits, it is a superior product.

1-0 out of 5 stars why upgarde
Editorial review claims Appleworks 6 will translate Word documents with Dataviz translator. Last phrase is the key. Appleworks 6 does no more translation than did Appleworks 5. If you want to manage in the PC world, either buy a PC or buy Dataviz Maclink Plus. Appleworks 6 offers nothing special for compatibility in spite of the misleading editorial review. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

AppleWorks 6.2 combines six core capabilities--word processing, page layout, painting, spreadsheet, database, and presentation--in one easy application. By seamlessly integrating these capabilities with Apple's QuickTime digital technologies, AppleWorks 6.2 makes it easy to incorporate text, spreadsheets, digital photos, images, sounds, and movies into a single document.

Sharing documents is a breeze with AppleWorks 6.2. New translators for Microsoft Word and Excel files let you open and modify these files from within AppleWorks. You can even save AppleWorks documents in these formats to share with friends and colleagues.

If you're running AppleWorks 6.2 on Mac OS X you'll notice additional benefits. Preemptive multitasking means that you can work on AppleWorks projects while iTunes rips your CD collection in the background, and your system will still stay responsive. The advanced Quartz graphics system in Mac OS X lets you save your print previews of any AppleWorks document as a PDF file. Anyone with Adobe Acrobat Reader on any platform can view and print these PDF files.

An expanding library of templates--stored on the Internet--can be downloaded via AppleWorks 6.2 without launching a browser or decompressing files. Many of the templates are designed by affiliated organizations, such as the AppleWorks Users Group, and new templates are added regularly. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good software, well, the best for me.
It is amazing software, really smart and pleasure to use. There are some things to improve to my taste, but overall it is definitely worth the money. In two hours of the actual using it appears by far more convenient that notorious MS Office. Extremely rich applications fulfilled by right tools. It is not overwhelmed with unneeded garbage but with smart and well organized things.
As one reviewer has mentioned it isn't Word. it is better. You don't have a filling that some one staying and breathing into your neck.
BTW, MS Word brought wrong habits and misleading conceptions, but if you know how to work , this one is much more productive tool.
All pieces well coordinated and inter working.
Very recommend. The interface a bit different and a few things to learn, but since you started to use it there is no way to back to MS Office. MS Office has more features in the same way as track has more horsepower, but will you drive it on vacation rather than coupe ?
One more thing to say, there is no any issues with MS Office compatibility. I converted many different documents and had no difficulties at all.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's not Word.
Let me make one thing clear: AppleWorks is not Microsoft Word. It is not Microsoft Office. And it is not a substitute for Word or Office, just as a Honda Civic isn't a substitute for a Hummer. It is, however, much easier to use, much less intrusive, and much less expensive. If you need Microsoft Office's features, by all means buy a copy. If you need to exchange files with Office users, it's probably a good idea to buy Office. But If you need to get work done quickly and easily, grab a copy of AppleWorks. All the modules (Word processor, graphics, spreadsheet, and presentation) are seamlessly integrated. Screen clutter is minimal (though the toolbars could be smaller.) Basic (and I stress basic) compatibility with Word and Excel files is included. But its strongest point is its ability to stay out of your way: it doesn't try to reformat your work to suit it's own ends, or make grammatical decisions for you, and the on-line help is helpful, not intrusive.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use with many good features.
A great application. If you don't want to spend the extra money and get Office X then this is the application for you. It's very easy to use and has a lot of great features like templates and clip art plus, you can make your own templates and clip art. It has many features that Office X has except it doesn't have grammar check. That is the only draw back but half the time I never paid attention to it when using Office 2000 for windows so this isn't a big deal for me. I have converted many documents from Office 2000 to AppleWorks with no problems. I also use it for college and I have yet to feel the need to get Office X. Some other features it has are spell check, a word counter, and it can read back your documents to you!! Try it out. You won't be sorry! I use this application on an iBook running Mac OS X 10.2.4

5-0 out of 5 stars Great upgrade from office mac
I am a computer programmer and have been using MS Office since office 97 was released. I bought an Ibook 2 weeks ago in order to get away from the Wintel platform (and Linux too). The appleworks program is great it lets me create documents that MS Office can read and will also open MS documents. AppleWorks (as far as I can tell) has all the power of MS Office and is way easier to use. I have only been using it for a couple of weeks and can already create better documents faster using appleworks. I have not used the presentation part of AppleWorks yet but I assume its as good as the rest but, for presentations I reccommend keynote.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth your money!
...Appleworks Office does everything I want an office program to do and it's stable and reliable. (I'm running system 9.2 on a G4). Another reviewer claims it isn't compatable with other programs, but fails to give any useful specifics, such as what programs and how it isn't compatable with them. I ignored that review and bought this software, and I'm glad I did. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Time, time, time
It's incompatible with my MacLinkPlus; everything must become Appleworks 5 before it can then be translated into AW6 and the same thing works in reverse. I can't cut & past text from my old fave WordPerfect for Mac. And it's the slowest somemabitch, at least in iMac X+, that I've ever had the impatience to work with. Spinning wheel: working, working, working, all right already: finish working! It's basically sound, but I can't call up the usually codes to see what is really going on, as I could with WordPerfect. Its translation to html is a nice attempt but full of hesitancies, mistranslations, & that goddamned eternal spinning wheel: processeing, processing. I really think I *could* like this word process if they fixed up the speed, efficiency, & translatability, & added the "seeing within" features I like. [I had hoped WordPerfect would make something for Mac X+, but they say no.]

This is an upgrade version. Microsoft Excel X for Mac is the latest update of this useful and feature-rich spreadsheet application. Going one step further to help Mac OS X users improve their productivity, Excel X offers new timesaving tools such as Auto Recover and customizable keyboard shortcuts. This version is compatible with Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, Excel 2001 for Mac, and Excel for Windows 97, 2000, and XP. It is also compatible with FileMaker Pro. Simply drag a FileMaker Pro file from the finder onto the Excel X icon, and the Excel X import wizard helps you select the database records to import.

Auto Recover is a new default feature in Excel X that automatically saves your document every 10 minutes. If you lose a document, for example, from a power outage or system crash, Excel X will proceed to automatically recover all files in reverse save order so that the focus will be on the file that was saved last. Keyboard shortcuts are now customizable in Excel X, letting you set up your keyboard as you are used to when working in other Office for Mac-based applications such as Word X.

Excel X for Mac includes a calculator, a first-for-the-Macintosh feature that enables novice spreadsheet users to discover and understand the concept of formulas in cells. Other features include the ability to create transparent charts with Quartz 2-D drawing technology and a list manager to simplify the chore of managing complex lists of data. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars MS Excel for Mac OS X upgrade
Microsoft's strength is in the department of "bells and whistles".
This makes their products somewhat complicated to learn and use and takes up lots of memory. I did like some features, for example, the notes for a field showing up in a little balloon that can be viewed without having to open a new window, as in an earlier version.
I had some difficulties with the installation but was talked through the procedure by a very patient tech.
In order to install any one item of the "Office" suite you must install many Megabytes of other stuff that you don't need, but you can trash much of that later.
Customizing the toolbar is a rather difficult and tedious process, especially when you cannot see the function of a tool ,unless you are in the mode in which you cannot trash it.
But overall, once you get it all set up, it does what it is supposed to do , even though the average user will never use most of the many functions. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars The MS programmers forgot their Mac 101 lessons!
This upgrade, from MS Excel 95 to MS Excel 2001, was pretty much a "forced" upgrade for me, thanks to the incompatibility between Excel 95 and my new G4 Titanium Powerbook and its operating system (OS 9.1 "as delivered", presently OS 9.2.2).

Like a good boy, I had been regularly purchasing my MS Excel upgrades for a very long time. How long has it been? It's been so long that my first copy of Excel (1.0, in 1985) was free, because at the time I possessed registered copies of MS Multiplan and MS Chart. That's a long time by anyone's measure. And it extends continuously over more than fifteen years, so you can appreciate that the program is fairly important for me.

With the ever-increasing hegemony of Windows-based business networks, and with the fact that Excel 95 cannot run on a G4 Mac with OS 9.0 or newer, I bit the bullet and purchased this latest upgrade. And, while I've now pretty much climbed its learning curve, the experience hasn't exactly been one that I'd rave about.

Here are a few nits I choose to pick (some small, some not so small):

* Somewhere between Excel 95 and Office 2001, Microsoft programmers seem to have lost track of the fact that Macs have both "Return" and "Enter" keys. (Wintel machines have no "Return" key.) The "Return" key no longer functions as it did, scrolling down one cell in an Excel spreadsheet; it now does precisely the same thing the "Enter" key does (which is limited to whatever one chooses from the "Preferences" menu). Dumb!

* In like fashion, the MS programmers decided to reassign several of the common "Command" key functions (Fill Down, Fill Across, Insert, Delete, Clear, etc.) to the "Control" key, again in some ill-founded effort at "cross-platform"compatibility. (Imagine my surprise when I first went to insert a row or column, only to find that my selection was formatted in italics!) In the process, the ergonomic superiority of the Mac keyboard, requiring less "stretch" effort to activate these keyboard shortcuts, has now been sacrificed to the Bill Gates God of Uniformity.

* After all these years, Microsoft STILL continues to place the Font menu on its own (non-standard) toolbar, not as a Mac-standard menu. Dumb!

* While tools have been added to the toolbox library, the ability to customize toolbars for one's own use has actually been reduced! And the tools don't always load consistently, suggesting some bugginess that requires a Microsoft patch or two, not yet available. And, unlike previous Excel upgrades in my experience, this one appears to provide no additional chart types. Dumb!

* Microsoft appears to use window definitions not in agreement with Apple system standards and requirements. I use Action GoMac (reviewed elsewhere at Amazon) as a navigation utility; it places a toolbar/launch dock at the bottom of the screen (much as Windows does). Excel 2001 fails to recognize this (small) reduction in useable screen height; the default Excel 2001 window spills over into this bottom-screen region. Frustrating!

There are a few (very few, I'm sad to say) gains:

* The application runs acceptably fast. But I think this has as much or more to do with G4 speed and available RAM as it does to "tight" coding by software engineers.

* I've got the cross-platform compatibility that my business-related activities require.

Summary: A "forced" upgrade for G4 Mac users who must use Excel. More steps backward than forward for those of us who prefer Macs but need the cross-platform compatibility. At best, three stars, and then only with the greatest of reluctance.

Amazon.com Review

While it won't replace the desktop computer any time soon, the handheld PDA is catching up and is becoming rather indispensable. Documents To Go 4.0 Professional makes several popular document formats easily portable and even allows basic editing on the run. Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files synch between PDA and multiple computers quickly and completely, and can be viewed on the Palm screen with surprising readability. Users can edit Word and Excel files, though the range of editing options is necessarily more limited than on desktop machines, and some files (especially complex Word documents) are tough to work with.

Installation is pretty simple; like all Palm software, there are several steps, but most users should find themselves synching files shortly. The interface is nearly transparent and the coders took pains to reproduce the look and feel of Microsoft Office. The Acrobat reader is a nice feature, even if the images are stripped to save memory. Despite this, RAM will be a problem for some users, who will undoubtedly have to make some tough decisions about which files to keep on the Palm.

Minor memory and editing problems aside, Documents To Go 4.0 Professional makes on-the-run synching and file-fixing a snap. And while the PDA won't replace the desktop machine anytime soon, the laptop better watch out. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Upgraded to latest Documents to Go 4 including Add-on kit last week. Have always been impressed with the main product, but the add-on kit is excellent. The mail sync (we use Lotus Notes) and the handling of attachments on my Palm M505 is the best I have tried - smooth, reliable, hassle free, straightforward to use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not up to snuff anymore
This was the coolest thing I loaded on my Palm after I first got it from amazon. But I later discovered that far better solutions exist on the market from other companys like bluenomad software and cutting edge software. Since my copy was free, it wasn't bad, but noone should spend any money on this product when such great alternatives as quickoffice and wordsmith are available for much less money and have much better features. There is no real formatting in the word processor, you can't set the font, the spreadsheet frequently looses information, and stuff.
But for first time users, it is a nice way to see what the Palm can do I think.

Will you be making a version to go on the Jonarda 720 hand helds? I had it on my palms and loved it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Print Word Documents Directly to IR Capable Printers
As a heavy word processing user on my Palm via Documents to Go (please see my reviews for Docs To Go 3.0 elsewhere on Amazon), I was happy to upgrade to the newest version, 4.0, as soon as it came out.

I was even happier to discover (after visiting the DataViz website) that accessory programs -- Docs To Print and IR Print, both available from doctoprint.irprint.com -- would enable me to print MS Word documents from my Palm directly to any number of IR (infrared) capable printers from HP, Canon and Sipix (with no PC or cables necessary).

I now own a HP DeskJet 990Cse, Canon BJC-55 and Sipix A6 printer, all of which allow me to print directly from my Palm, the latter two of which are portable.

I carry the little Sipix A6 printer (which uses A6 size thermal paper) in my briefcase. I take the Canon BJC-55 (ink jet, letter size) printer with me on business trips. And I've placed a second HP DeskJet 990Cse printer elsewhere in my house where I print from my Palm -- without the use of a PC.

As we all know, with its relatively small screen, performing word processing on one's Palm can sometimes be difficult. Being able to print a hard copy -- anywhere you might need it -- is thus truly a godsend.

With Docs To Go 4.0 (and Docs To Print and IR Print), and with the IR capable printers listed above, I can now word process -- and print -- anywhere in my house (or the world) from my Palm. (No PC required.)

Amazon.com Product Description

Microsoft Excel X for Mac is the latest update of this useful and feature-rich spreadsheet application. Going one step further to help Mac OS X users improve their productivity, Excel X offers new timesaving tools such as Auto Recover and customizable keyboard shortcuts. This version is compatible with Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, Excel 2001 for Mac, and Excel for Windows 97, 2000, and XP. It is also compatible with FileMaker Pro. Simply drag a FileMaker Pro file from the finder onto the Excel X icon, and the Excel X import wizard helps you select the database records to import.

Auto Recover is a new default feature in Excel X that automatically saves your document every 10 minutes. If you lose a document, for example, from a power outage or system crash, Excel X will proceed to automatically recover all files in reverse save order so that the focus will be on the file that was saved last. Keyboard shortcuts are now customizable in Excel X, letting you set up your keyboard as you are used to when working in other Office for Mac-based applications such as Word X.

Excel X for Mac includes a calculator, a first-for-the-Macintosh feature that enables novice spreadsheet users to discover and understand the concept of formulas in cells. Other features include the ability to create transparent charts with Quartz 2-D drawing technology and a list manager to simplify the chore of managing complex lists of data. ... Read more
