    Free, cloud-based word processor Zoho writer shows promise

    Posted February 7, 2012 - 8:39 am

    Zoho Writer is an online (with offline and syncing functionality) word processing application that offers a nice amount of functionality, especially given the limitations of the Web as a platform for productivity tools. After creating a free account with Zoho, you can access Zoho Writer. It looks a lot like most word processors, so if you've used any major program in this category, it will take no more than a few minutes of poking around to learn how to do things. This is good, because the "Help" is in the form of a FAQ, not a tutorial or index of functions.

    Posted September 5, 2008 - 4:03 pm

    Zoho Invoice, part of a growing suite of online business services from Zoho, lets you invoice customers by e-mail, track receivables, and collect payments online.
