Even though a lot of us have invested in the Google ecosystem for our document creating and editing, Microsoft Office is still a giant in the game. Up until today, editing and sharing Office documents through mobile wasn’t accessible or it cost money if you were not on a Windows device.
Today, Microsoft is changing up its strategy. (more…)
Microsoft released Office Mobile for Android this morning, bringing Office 365 subscribers a chance to access, view and edit their Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents. The app itself is technically free and works on devices running Android 4.0+, but again, you need a 365 subscription in order to actually use it.
Everything with this app revolves around the cloud, though, which is to be expected in 2013. You can make simple edits, view “great-looking” docs, resume reading Word documents from where you last left off, and even edit while offline.

As of today, Microsoft does indeed have plans on releasing Office for Android devices. Over the past couple of months, we’ve been questioning when exactly this was going to happen after having received bits and pieces of info, but nothing official. Finally, that has changed this morning as new info and even screenshots have hit the web via The Verge.
Thanks to their sources, Office is confirmed for both iOS and Android devices with a rough release time frame of Q1 of 2013.

The newest rumor to begin circulating the Interwebz has Microsoft pegged to release their Office suite of apps for Android tablets this upcoming November. The rumor stems from the folks over at BGR, who say their source has seen it already running on an iPad, so who knows, maybe it could happen. For now, there are plenty of apps that take the place of viewing and editing Word and Excel documents, but it would nice to have an official MS licensed application. Would you buy it?
