Microsoft Makes Its Way to the iPhone – Finally
Those who own an iPhone know how frustrating it is to not be able to edit Word or Excel documents. But the bitterness displayed toward Microsoft can now end. The company is launching Office for the iPhone, which includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint. However, Outlook will not be available.
According to Mashable,
“The app is available to iPhone owners in the U.S. today, and in international markets early next week. Although anyone can download the app, only subscribers to Office 365 will be able to use it — the app prompts you to sign in with your Office or Microsoft account at startup. The iPhone doesn’t count against a subscriber’s five supported devices, and a single account supports up to five iPhones.”
Although Microsoft is bringing the Office app to iOS before Android, Android users can still access the Office web apps through the Chrome browser.
It took some time for Microsoft to make its way to the iPhone, but it’s better late than never.
