Microsoft continues to focus on ‘Cloud for everyone, on Every Device’ by releasing Office for iPad, and mobile apps for use with iPhone and Android devices.
Office for iPad includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint which are all installable as individual Apps. Office Apps are free to install and allow you to read documents. If you wish to create and edit documents then you will need an Office 365 subscription.
To use Microsoft Office on an iPad you will need iOS 7.
Office Mobile is also available for iPhone and Android via Office Mobile and is free to use (for home use), so you don’t need an Office 365 subscription to create and edit documents. For corporate use an Office 365 subscription is required.
Office for iPad has been built ‘from the ground up’ utilising iPads native functionality and touch. Documents look like the originals and feels familiar to the user.
As a leading Partner of Office 365 we get asked often if Office is available on iPad, iPhone and Android! This is a real advantage for Microsoft and the Office platform!
Office 365 is Microsoft’s fastest growing product ever!
