Last week, Microsoft finally launched its iconic Office Suite for Apple’s iPad.
“Office 365 subscribers can simply add an iPad as one of their chosen devices included in their subscription benefits, and can create and edit documents with Word for iPad, PowerPoint for iPad and Excel for iPad,” the software giant announced.
Although Office for iPad is available at no charge, the ability to use the full range of services and tools native to Office requires a 365 subscription.
Nonetheless, it doesn’t appear that this “catch” is holding back Office’s iPad debut. Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that more than have been more than 12 million downloads of Microsoft Office for iPad already.
Not a bad first week, huh?
Microsoft promised a “familiar Office experience designed for iPad,” and it appears that since Microsoft delivered on that pledge, users have rewarded the company with their continued loyalty on a new platform.
