CompareMyDocs is a useful online office application; it’s a word processing tool that does much more than many other online word processors. Compared to Google Documents and similar tools CompareMyDocs offers easier tools for collaborating with colleagues wherever they are in the world. Invited users don't have to register an account for example. The developers of the application have also suggested that they will release a desktop version of the application in the near future which will be based on the Adobe AIR platform. The same features will be included in the desktop version, including the popular drag and drop functionality. Many text flow plans include support for Microsoft word documents which can be imported. They are also working to provide access to other formats such as Google documents by implementing the Google docs API.Show more screenshots »

Registering for an account on CompareMyDocs is very easy, it involves filling out a regular registration form and then selecting the plan that you want to use. They also offer a free trial so that you can find out whether or not the application is suitable for you. The free version is suitable for personal users only.

CompareMyDocs offer a free personal version which is not intended for business use, this can be downloaded without having to share your credit card details and never expires. They also offer a professional version which costs $99 per user per year. The free version is fully functional however it watermarks all documents and does not have the same collaboration functions.
CompareMyDocs is an ideal system for business users thanks to its advanced collaborative tools allowing people to work together. It also has some nice features and is suitable for personal users. The free personal user is just as good as many other word processors, but lacks some of the features in the business feature.
