Microsoft Office App Now Available for iOS, Includes Word, PowerPoint & Excel

The Microsoft Office All-in-One app is now publicly available for iOS devices. The new development comes just after the Redmond company introduced a unified Office app for Android devices. In particular, the Office app for both iOS and Android devices was available through a public preview until now. The application provides access to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. It also integrates Microsoft lens technology to convert images into editable Word and Excel documents, scan PDFs and capture whiteboards. The Microsoft Office app is available to download directly to the iOS device through the Apple App Store. Of course, Android users can get the latest experience through Google Play.

Since the public preview, Microsoft has underlined in a blog post that it has made “several enhancements” to the Office app. These include support for third-party storage services including Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and iCloud; Templates for creating new documents, spreadsheets and presentations; And general performance improvement.

The amalgamation of Word, Excel and PowerPoint helps reduce the storage requirement of the app. To give some perspectives, the Word app is available for download on iOS devices with a file size of 282.4MB, while the Office app for iOS is 378.6MB.

Having said that, Microsoft does not want to close the standalone Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for some reasons. These are first important for users who do not want all three of the company’s productivity tools on their devices. Secondly, the Office app currently has limited tablet support. Microsoft mentioned in its blog post that it is working on making the app fully optimized for tablets.
