iPad welcomes Microsoft Office

Working out of the Office

The concept of work as simply going to the office has changed a lot in the past few years. Before all the advances in technology, a typical workday would consist of going to the office from 9 AM to 5 PM. The creation of the iPad makes work from home more convenient and popular. One can now access their files on the go, as iPad welcomes Microsoft Office to their applications.


Microsoft Office includes Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel. Word is generally used for documents, PowerPoint for presentations, and excel for spreadsheets. These three applications have helped businesses around the world to increase in productivity. As of yesterday, the iPad welcomed Microsoft Office with open arms.

With the creation of the iPad, workers could now take their work home with them. Until yesterday, the iPad was missing just one thing: Microsoft Office. With the addition of Microsoft Office on the iPad, a workday no longer requires one to be in the office from 9-5. The application for iPad is free to download and allows one to access documents without editing. To access editing with the applications, one has to pay the subscription price. Within the first 24 hours of their launch, the Microsoft Office applications for the iPad have topped the charts.


With the free Office download you can review the documents, but cannot edit or create new ones. In order to edit or create new documents, one has to purchase the $99 a year subscription. According to a recent article “Microsoft Office for iPad Isn’t Perfect, But It’s What We Needed All Along,” with the subscription, “you get 20GB of online storage and the ability to access your OneDrive files directly from Office.” This storage allows one to work off of Microsoft Office at work, save their work, and then continue from their iPad at a different location. The iPad version of the application has optimized the best attributes of the iPad touch screen. Ultimately, a year’s subscription of the Microsoft Office for the iPad is beneficial for anyone in the business world.
