Microsoft Confirms Office For Tablet Users

March 28th, 2014 | Posted by Erika Blasko in iPad | Tablet

Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, announced that Office for iPad is will be available for tablet users. Microsoft plans to introduce Office apps for tablet computers running Google’s Android system as well. Critics state that Microsoft has waited far too long to introduce Office to iPad tablets, which nearly 200 million have already been sold.

The iPad apps for Microsoft Powerpoint, Excel and Word are all free in the app store. From these apps, you’ll be able to read and present your information. The launch of these new apps lets you create and edit your documents, calculate spreadsheets and also design professional presentations.

Mobile office apps have already been launched for the iPhone and Android smartphones, so of course Microsoft and Apple would target tablets next.

Nadella stated that Office on iPad is “a beautiful set of applications; the company is taking great care to make sure that Office on every device shines through.”

A personal subscription to Microsoft Office for your computer and tablet is due this spring for $69.99 a year. Microsoft has said that the Office iPad apps would be free to users who want to use them in “read-only” mode, but to be able to create work on the app users will have to pay an annual subscription fee to get Office 365.
