Microsoft released Office Mobile on Google’s Play Store just yesterday, which benefits those who are currently Office 365 subscribers with at least an Android 4.0 smartphone. Subscription is necessary before using the app and is quite optimized for phone-sized navigation, so Android tablets would experience a stretched version of its interface.
With Office 365, you get to access your Office documents via cloud with SkyDrive or SharePoint, edit even while offline, and create new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents. Since it’s cloud-connected, you get to view, edit, or even just read what you’re working on right where you left it from your PC or Mac.
The iPhone got the Office 365 app just mid-week last June, and got the same requirements and user interface limitations. You have to have qualifying plans, which includes Office 365 Home Premium, the Small Business Premium, Midsize Business, Enterprise E3 and E4, Education A3 and A4, the ProPlus, and the Office 365 University.
If you don’t have a subscription yet, then you can buy right from the app the Office 365 Home Premium, which also gives you the latest version of Office for up to 5 computing devices, whether it’s a PC, a Mac or Windows tablet. You also get an additional 20GB SkyDrive cloud storage and Skype world minutes as well. Or if you want, you can at least enjoy a month’s trial, just to compare if you’re satisfied with your existing productivity office apps or realized that this is a must have for you overall.
