Anybody else having problems downloading this app from store?
Yes, same here.
Both are having problems for me, they've been stuck on starting download for several minutes.
Update: I left them running in the background and wend back after abt 20 min and they had both downloaded.
No download it...
There is a permanent banner visible in the screenshots for their other app, which isn't free. That makes this "deal" ad-supported and not truly free. Kinda low to abuse MyAppFree for this practise.
Why not just use the UWP version of word?
wish they had UWP Word app for desktop
Is it any better than Word Mobile?
Seems to have a permanent ad banner for their Excel equivalent jammed down the bottom on the desktop, it's quite obtrusive and annoying. Doesn't compete well with LibreOffice I can assure you. Doesn't seem to be better than Microsoft's own store app 'lite' version of Office either, so I'll not bother trying it on mobile. Might be good on mobile if they can beat the feature set of the MS mobile app for people who don't have an Office subscription and are just using the limited version. And if they get rid of that advert which would be an even bigger killer on mobile. They have a way to go though, and a huge mountain to climb on the desktop. Good luck devs, I'll check back in when you've had some time with this one.
The ad is distracting because it's noticeably big for an ad banner. The ad also claims the Excel editor is free which is false.
