Microsoft Office Now Free to iOS Users


Microsoft has been promising to increase their mobile and cross-platform presence for a while now.  MS fans have been calling for the company to prove it with some flagship products.

Now they have done it.  Microsoft Office will be available for iOS and Android users.  Take that, doubters!  First off, Office will become available for iOS immediately; Android will follow soon after.

According to the following extract from ReadWrite, the plan is as follows:

Microsoft Office fans who can’t put down their iPhones can take note: Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are available on iOS as of Thursday. Better yet, they’re all free.

Previously, there were two different versions of the Microsoft Office apps for iOS mobile devices. There was the poorly received Office Mobile for iPhone, and the well received Word, Excel, and PowerPoint for iPad. Thursday’s release takes the preferred iPad apps, updates them, and unifies the Microsoft Office experience for all devices running iOS 7 or higher, whether you have an Office 365 subscription or not.
