Microsoft Another (this time, unsurprising) scoop by The Verge: "Office Mobile will debut in the form of free apps that allow Android and iOS users to view Microsoft Office documents on the move. Like the existing SkyDrive and OneNote apps, Office Mobile will require a Microsoft account. On first launch, a Microsoft account will provide access to the basic viewing functionality in the apps. Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents will all be supported, and edit functionality can be enabled with an Office 365 subscription." Smart move to get users to go subscription.

Better in the lines of Microsoft's view point and interests - and for business' wanting software that, you would think or wish, should have no issues at all working with Office Docs.

But as a general consumer that have options like the free Kingsoft Office mobile app and what you've mentioned above, who just wants to be able to read some documents or make an occassional document, not much there really.
