Free Online Word Processor and Chat Application

Free, fun, fast and friendly online word processor and chat – using PrimaryPad

Create documents, share ideas, and collaborate with others by simply copying and pasting the webpage URL and sending an email. The text is synchronized as you type, everyone viewing the pages sees the same text in ‘real-time’. The app also includes a chat option to exchange ideas and information with others without cluttering up the document and you also can track document revisions.  Once you are finished, select to export as word, plain text, PDF, and others. Your created documents are saved for 30 days and any updates are accessible through the original page link so no need to send emails to collaborators each time. Originally developed and designed by a teacher, this app is great for interactive teacher-student sessions but works just as well with your business colleagues and team/group members. The application does not provide a lot of rich features and is limited to a word processing application, you cannot upload or insert images, etc.

Review of Basic App Features:

  • Real-time text synchronization
  • Documents available for 30 days
  • Up to 50 people can collaborate
  • Chat functionality
  • Up to 50 automatic revision saves
  • Forever free version

Summary Review and Grade

  • No Registration Required
  • No Downloads
  • No Installation Required
  • Works on All Web-browsers
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows, Android)

Basic version is a ‘forever free’ version and no free trial periods and you do not even need to register to begin using. The application does also offer a Pro account in which you can add features that include creating passwords to secure your documents and keeping a stored copy forever… We had to deduct a little in the grade because the features are limited but this is still a great and easy-to-use application that works very fast for collaborating with others on simple word processing projects.

Online file sharing – any format, any browser – no downloading

Upload any file format, view from any web-browser, work on any Operating System – with dropdo

Share files with friends and co-workers by providing a unique URL link. No need to send emails with file attachments that consume space, no need to wonder if your recipient can open and view your information because they may be working on a different operating system or have a different software version installed. Simply upload your file and send via a URL link that is viewable directly online, using any web-browser, with any operating system.  This makes file sharing very simple and is great for when the main purpose is simply to view the information without any need to download and is especially useful if you think a file might be infected by a virus.

Review of Basic App Features:

  • Support for many file formats, images, videos, music, and more.
  • Sample of supported formats – PDF, Word, Excel, PPT, OpenOffice, CSV, RTF, JPEG, PNG, BMP, EPS, SVG, PSD, video and audio (including mp3), and plain text
  • Everything is performed directly from your web-browser
  • “Upload a File” from your computer (you can also paste a URL of a file to share)
  • Uploaded files are viewable directly from your browser
  • Share your uniquely generated URL with others

Summary Review and Grade

  • No Registration Required
  • No Downloads
  • No Installation Required
  • Works on All Web-browsers
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows)
  • Can’t set access rights (read-only, read-write, etc)
  • Can’t delete or collect URL files

Because there is no registration or account process, the system will not store or group your uploaded files so you will need to keep copies of your file URLs. You also do not have the ability to set different access rights (ready-only, read-write, etc) and will not receive any notifications of when someone opens or edits the file.  Lastly, there is no delete option, so once you have uploaded the file and been provided a URL, it is available online and stays online.

However, if the main purpose is to share a file (and almost any file format) with others to view or have access without the need to download, then this is a great and easy to use application.

Below are a couple of example utilizing different file formats:
