Microsoft recently released the new Office Mobile for iPhone. This app is free to those who subscribe to Office 365 Home Premium and Office 365 ProPlus. The app has similar features to the Office app that is installed on the new Windows Phones.
The app gives iPhone users access to an official version of Office, and the ability to manage and edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations all from your phone while on the go. The new app also has the ability to create new documents and spreadsheets on the fly. Having access to Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint from the iPhone is a big step forward for Microsoft in broadening their mobile user range.
It is too soon to tell how much of a gamechanger this new app will be. With Apple’s recent announcement of a new iWork suite for iCloud to be released later this year, this new Office app will need to gain loyal users quickly.
