Office for iPad turns Apple’s tablet into a proper PC

Microsoft offers its suite of word-processing, spreadsheet and presentation apps free to iPad users

Microsoft is offering its Office suite of productivity apps free to iPad users for reading and presenting documents. An Office 365 subscription is required to add the ability to create and edit documents in Word, PowerPoint and Excel, however.

“Microsoft is focused on delivering the cloud to everyone, on every device. It’s a unique approach that centres on people – enabling the devices you love to work with the services you love, and in a way that works for IT and developers,” said Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO.

Office for iPad is available on Apple tablets running iOS 7 or later. A free Office Mobile app is also available for iPhone users.

For those who also want to create and edit documents in Word, Excel and PowerPoint, Office 365 subscriptions start at £7.99 per month or £79 per year.

Business users will also require an Office 365 subscription, with prices from £3.30 per user, per month for a Small Business package, up to £9.80 for the Midsize Business subscription.

Microsoft said the Office for iPad apps have been “built from the ground up” with touch control and the iPad’s native functionality in mind.

“Documents look like the originals, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes,” said Microsoft.

Microsoft says that Office 365 is the firm’s fastest-growing product ever. It believes its success is down to “the ability to move between devices, share subscription benefits with household members with an Office 365 Home subscription, and have constant access to important Office documents online”.
