Google Docs is great for sharing documents, online collaboration and anywhere access, although the features of the program are on the basic side, at least for a heavy Microsoft Office user like myself. Zoho has similar cloud-based office software for word processing, spreadsheets, note organization and presentations. If you’re on a Mac, you’ll definitely want to check out Apple’s iWork suite, which includes Pages for word processing, Numbers for spreadsheets and Keynote for presentations (Page X). I didn’t find that this $60 replacement ($19.99/program) did everything I wanted (See Behind the Glasses: Your Nerdy Best Friend’s Essential Software, Page X), but it has strong features for about half the price of Microsoft’s Mac suite.
