Microsoft Office 2016 review


Today's release of Office 2016 marks almost three years since the last major version of Microsoft's productivity apps. More than 1.2 billion people use Office, for everything from simple word processing and personal finances, to powerful number...

For the past 20 years, Office has been ubiquitous. It’s been like the air that business people breathe: everywhere, necessary, sometimes fresh and sometimes a little stale. But in that time, the web and mobile devices from Apple and Android have also...

Office for iPad review: three beautiful apps, each with strong competition


After loads of leaks -- and some serious denial from Microsoft -- the company has finally released a version of Office for iPad. It's not surprising, in

Beautiful, uncluttered design masks loads of customization options ; Feature-rich, especially for a mobile productivity suite ; Smooth performance throughout ; One of the only mobile office suites that supports OneDrive and Office 365

Subscription required for full use, whereas competing apps are free to everyone ; Only works with OneDrive and SharePoint, making it impractical for people who use other cloud services ; Unable to print documents ; You can only insert Camera Roll...

Office for iPad is elegantly designed, with a robust feature set and intuitive layout. It's great for people who already have an Office 365 subscription, and it's also one of the only mobile office suites to work with Microsoft's OneDrive service. For...

Microsoft Office for iPad review: Finally! True productivity on your tablet


Microsoft's Office for Apple's iPad tablet is a beautiful hybrid of form and function, competing with and even outdoing Apple's iWork suite.

Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium review


It feels like we've been talking about Office 2013 for a while now -- we first previewed the software back in July, and it's been available as a free

Office 2013 itself is feature-rich and easy to use ; Subscribers get extra SkyDrive storage, Skype minutes ; Software version is always up to date

Subscription model makes less sense for people with one or few PCs

Unless you plan to run Office on five or so computers, it might make more sense to purchase Office 2013 instead of paying for an annual subscription.

Review: Microsoft Office 365 vs. Google Apps


Two and a half years ago, when InfoWorld first pitted Office 365 against Google Apps, I likened Office 365 to the Queen Elizabeth 2 and Google Apps to a sailboat. In the intervening years, both have changed but in remarkably different respects.

Office 365 Small Business, for up to 25 users, does not include the Office 2013 desktop apps (though you would be forgiven for assuming otherwise). However, if you already have licenses for Office 2013, 2010, or even 2007, or Office 2011 or 2008 for...

Office 2016 for Mac review: the productivity suite Apple users have been waiting for?


Microsoft's first Office suite to hit the Mac in five years still has work to do.

Smart and modern design ; Familiarity with Office 2013 ; Some support for Mac features

Handoff/other features missing ; Not perfect feature parity ; Inconsistent collaboration

While it’s great to see a modern, improvement-packed version of Office for the Mac, it’s sometimes wearisome that a suite which started life on this platform still doesn’t feel entirely native to it, and the long period since the last version has let...

Microsoft Office:mac 2008 - Mac - Pocket-lint


Four years in the making, Microsoft's latest version of Office for the Apple mac is here, but has it been worth the wait, is there enough new stuff in

Interface, My Day widget, usability

Not much

Wow. This isn't just whimsical update with a few changes here and there, but actually a product that brings a massive amount of productivity to the table.

Microsoft's Office apps on Android bring the features you need (review)


The full-featured Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps you've been waiting for have landed on Android, and they're packing all the tools you want to make edits on the go, away from your desktop. They don't have every single feature their desktop...

Microsoft's Word, Excel and Powerpoint Android apps have all of the key Office features, seamless OneDrive cloud storage and a familiar design

Select advanced features are only available with an Office 365 subscription. The layout is a bit cramped on Android phones

The Office Android apps are perfect for major and minor edits on the go.

Review: Microsoft Office 2016


It's been a momentous year for Microsoft. Just look at all the notable and premium hardware they've released in the past week alone. Before that, they had major game releases on Xbox One (which is currently routing PS4 in terms of popularity and games...

The push on collaboration is a huge one for students and office workers managing multiple projects with other people near and far plus the ability to be able to integrate seamlessly to OneDrive for backups and for resuming work on another machine or,...
