What is the difference between PerfectIt Cloud and PerfectIt 5?

For Windows users we recommend PerfectIt 5. Mac users should use PerfectIt Cloud.

If you're interested in more detail:

  • PerfectIt 5 is for PCs with Windows only. It works with MS Word 2007 and above. With PerfectIt 5, all checking is carried out on your own computer. It never connects to a server of any kind and no information is sent anywhere. PerfectIt 5 has the option to customize your own style sheets; and you can have a different style sheet for every client you work with.
  • PerfectIt Cloud runs on any platform that has Office 2016, 2019 or above (Mac, PC, iPad or Word Online). With PerfectIt Cloud, checking is carried out on a server. With most broadband or Wi-Fi connections, you won’t notice any delay. You will notice that it’s easier to install and use it. To use it, just add it from the Microsoft Office Store.

In the long term, our goal is that the two products will become more and more alike.
