Microsoft Office, is no doubt, one of the most popular office suite of desktop applications, servers and services for both Microsoft Windows and OS X Operating Systems. It also runs on various devices with its Office Mobile for Windows Phone, Android Phones and also for iPhone. While, the version of Office for iPad was launched in March 2014. A web-based version of MsOffice called Office Online is also available.

But, if you can not afford the price you have to pay to obtain the license, I think Kingsoft Office may become one of the best alternative for freeware office app.
