Microsoft "Overall the app is really basic, and designed for on the go editing. Microsoft says it's not planning to create an iPad version, noting that tablet users can utilize the Office Web Apps instead. We'd like to see some additional options for editing, including more clear options for text formatting and the ability to insert and change images, but it's a solid attempt for something you're only really going to use for editing in emergencies." A resounding meh can be heard from all over the world.

I watched the video..
It looks frustrating to use on such a small screen. I have the same issue using Google Docs/Drive if I want to modify a spreadsheet.

According to a company spokesperson there will be no iPad version because it doesn't provide a satisfactory user experience.

So maybe it's supposed to be torture. ;-)
