We know you’ve been wanting it, and starting today, you can download Word, Excel and PowerPoint for iPad from the App Store. The apps have the robust capabilities and familiar look and feel that is unmistakably Office, while offering a fantastic touch experience built from the ground up for iPad. With the free versions of the apps, you can read your Word documents, view your Excel data and present with PowerPoint. Your documents will look as good as they do on your PC and MacÂ®, and better than ever on your iPad. With an Office 365 subscription, you can edit and create new documents with the iPad.
It looks pretty good, and as a heavy Office users, I can’t wait until this hits Android tablets. On a related note: Office for phones (both iOS and Android) has gone completely free.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that iOS got touch Office before Windows. I feel like I’m in the twilight zone.
Is Office for iOS as feature-complete as the desktop version?
I’m pretty sure, at least originally, the goal for the Metro Office was 100% feature-completeness.
