It is a full-text editor of similar appearance to the popular Microsoft word, but adding the functions and amenities needed to edit, update and publish our blog without having to go to the editor by default, directly from our Windows desktop is very broad...

I appreciate once you have the app it's yours! alleviating a annoyance with some other rentable writing programs. It has seamless transfer when switching from mobile to Mac and simple PDF exporting.

This tool is not available on Mac OS X and is part of the Live suite.

The cloud integration could use some improvement. Overall, it doesn't really have any standout features. Pages is a similar app that does many of the same thing, but it also does a lot more. Given the choice between the two, I would choose Pages.
