Microsoft Launches Office For iPad

Office for iOS has been in the rumour mill for quite some time, and with Nadella's appointment as CEO it became obvious that the app will be released soon. As General Manager of Microsoft Office, Julia White puts it, “This is definitely not the Windows app ported to the iPad,”. It is evident since everything seems to go well with Apple's OS. The only bit of the UI that does fall out of place with Apple’s design guidelines is the ribbon to navigate between tabs.

All three apps, Word, Excel, PowerPoint offer new features such as re-flowing and formatting. While Office for iPad is quite good, they still aren't functional as its Windows RT and Windows 8.1 counterparts. Yes, the free version will only allow users to view and present files on their iPad. For editing, you will be required to subscribe to Office 365 service that costs around Rs 420 a month or Rs 4200 a year. -
