Office Suite Professional 6 app for the KindleFire, normally $14.99, is $0.99 until end of day June 17.
The Office Suite Professional 6 customer reviews are mostly enthusiastic. Some low '1'-votes were given because of updates that appear to cost extra. However, as a commenter points out based on the company's Facebook page, updates to this app are free for registered users, so do register right away after downloading the app. I grabbed this one when it was free for one day many moons ago, and the updates never cost me anything.
The "Most helpful" review so far (by K. Tevald) includes these statements:
' The word processor is,for me,the most outstanding portion of the software. The text editing and alignment. options are easy to use and translate perfectly when opened in MS Office Blue. The indentation and margin options available in OfficeSuite pro are second to none and adding pictures and media into the .docs is as easy as can be.
Until this I was using QuickOffice Pro. QuickOffice Pro does not offer anywhere near as useful a word processor, and it often loses formatting when importing and exporting to and from MS Word. QuickOffice Pro does not compare to this in any way. '
