Office Mobile for iPhone now available for Office 365 subscribers
No that is not a typo, earlier today the Microsoft Office division announced a really nice value add for Office 365 subscribers with Office Mobile now available on the iPhone. Office mobile gives iPhone users access to edit and view Office documents. For Windows Phone 8 users this is exactly what you have had since Windows Phone 7. So both platforms now have access to Microsoft Office documents on the go via there mobile device. Now if you have an Office 365 Home Premium or Office 365 ProPlus subscriber then the app costs you nothing its free to use on Microsoft’s Office 365 service.
So what do you get with Office Mobile for iPhone, well it includes Excel, Word and PowerPoint it does not include Outlook and OneNote ( one note can be downloaded separately from the iTunes store). You can only edit Excel and Word documents, with PowerPoint documents you can only view them.
So just to address the elephant in the room, there is no word on an iPad version from Microsoft at this point in time, but something has now made sense for me. If you remember at WWDC Apple spent a lot of time highlighting iWorks well we now know whey they did this.
Like any good product release there is a video showing off experience. Have a look below at what it is like to use
Here is the link to apple store if you want to view it in iTunes
