Notice that there’s nothing to install. Most “cutting edge” applications are cloud-based (SaaS- software as a service) and are free or offered on a subscription model. When reviewing an online option, check the terms and conditions to ensure that you own your data and can download it or receive a backup if you should leave the service.
