Microsoft Office revealed – Coming to iOS and Android

Leaked shots of Office for Android and iOS have appeared on The Verge with just basic viewing of files available but, after paying extra for an Office 365 subscription, you’ll be able to edit files on the move too.

Arriving on iOS first, it’ll also be available on iOS too. Now… I don’t know about you, but I have to give my opinion of this…

“Meh”…

I don’t know what it is, but I’m quite happy with the existing Office-style apps on Android (Quickoffice etc) and, without payment, this will merely let you view Office files, which I really don’t have a problem with at the moment. Is it just me?

    Wow, MS have made the iPad useful! Having tried various apps on my Android tablet, I came to the conclusion that none of them displayed files completely perfectly and certainly could preserve some features during editing. The real Office should make 100% compatible documents possible. And make tablets more productive. Surely this is going to hurt sales of Windows 8 tablets though!
