If you have been waiting for Microsoft to deliver Word, Excel and PowerPoint to iPad, your wait finally came to an end about a month ago.
From the developer:
“Now your Microsoft Office documents look better than ever on iPad! The Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps have the familiar Office look and feel along with an intuitive touch experience, so you’ll be up and running in no time. When you edit a document on the iPad, you can be sure that you won’t lose any content or formatting.
With the free apps, you can read Word documents, view Excel data and present with PowerPoint.”
An Office 365 subscription is needed to create and edit in Word, Excel or PowerPoint. See Office 365 subscription plans and pricing here.
