    My Thoughts on Spread32

    I really like that Spread32 is completely portable - and super tiny at that. This makes it perfect for placing on a flash drive.

    There isn't much to say about Spread32 that separates it from similar spreadsheet programs. It's nice that common features are included, though, like being able to add charts and use hundreds of formulas.

    It's too bad there isn't a spell check feature, but I think the fact that Spread32 is really easy to use makes up for that downfall. If you're looking for a program that does have spell check, try OpenOffice Calc for automatic spell check or Kingsoft Spreadsheets for one that has a manual spell check feature.
