Microsoft finally released an Office version for iPad. Even though for many this decision is too little too late, the Office software suite is definitely here to bring iPad users the best productivity experience. According to the announcement, Microsoft made three apps available - Word, Excel and PowerPoint - all optimized for touch control.
Users can view documents, or Excel spreadsheets, and display a PowerPoint presentation for free, but if they want to edit content, or create new documents, they will need an Office 365 subscription.
Office documents appear on iPad just as they do on a Mac or PC, so users can feel comfortable using the iPad version of the software. The ribbon layout is also very familiar, making it extremely easy to touch, and create or edit documents. iPad features allow users to dictate a Word document, or use AirPlay to make a wireless projection on a TV screen.
All work done on the iPad can be accessed and resumed, at any time and place, using Microsoft's cloud services. With SharePoint, OneDrive, and OneDrive for Business, users can access documents at their convenience without worrying where they left off, or whether they have Internet connection.
Microsoft Office productivity apps for iPad can be used with iOS7. Users can download the apps for iPad from the App Store for free, and subscribe for Office 365. However, they can also sign up for a 30-day trial period for viewing, creating and editing documents, and decide if they can integrate the full Office for iPad experience into their business routine.
