Well here’s a new iPad app that I never expected to see – WordPerfect X7, a new version of the word processing app and old-time rival of Microsoft Word.
I didn’t realize WordPerfect was still around, though I do recall my brother mentioning to me years ago that it is very popular with lawyers and law firms. Anyway, it looks as if it still going strong, and it now has a new iPad version – though it is currently a limited free trial and a ‘virtualized desktop’:
This is a free trial, available for a limited time and subject to limited availability. This virtualized desktop companion requires you to be connected to the Internet. During the trial period we recommend you connect to the internet through Wi-Fi for enhanced performance.
Here’s a bit more of the app’s description:
WordPerfect X7 ® iPad companion is designed to work with the new WordPerfect X7 ® for desktop. Availability is limited… activation is required
With WordPerfect X7 iPad Companion, you can experience a full-featured word processor which offers hassle-free, easy-to-use formatting options that help you do more with documents on an iPad.
Word Processing essentials on the go!
· Open Microsoft® Word documents
· Streamlined document creation
· Reveal Codes and other classic features
· New collaborative tools and applications
A little bit of an odd way to launch an iPad app, especially hot on the heels of the release of a full-blown version of Word and Microsoft Office for iPad, but likely still of interest for hard-core WordPerfect users.
Here’s an App Store link for WordPerfect X7 for iPad.
Do we have any WordPerfect or WordPerfect for iPad users here?
