Microsoft Office for iPhone Has Arrived
Posted: June 15, 2013 by Maja Johnson
For all iPhone users that were patiently waiting for Microsoft Office to come to their smartphones, the wait is finally over! All US iPhone users can download the Microsoft Office application and use the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint features.
The Microsoft Office application comes as part of the Office 365 subscription service. According to officials, anyone will be able to download the application, however, only those who subscribe to Office 365 will be able to use its benefits. The application will require from you sign in with your office or Microsoft account. Microsoft announced that the application will be available internationally in a week's time.
Officials at Microsoft and Apple have said nothing about the application being available for the iPad. Usually, any application that is available for the iPhone becomes available for the iPad as well. Microsoft's marketing manager Julia White believes that there is no need to launch a Microsoft Office application for the iPad. The iPad has a larger screen than the iPhone, and the already existing Office web application functions perfectly for the device. On the other hand, the iPhone has a smaller screen and definitely needs an application made especially for it.
