Microsoft Office 365 Home


Office 365 gets you the best productivity software available today, including full installations of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more, for up to five Windows and Mac desktops. You also get a slew of mobile apps, 1TB of online storage, and real-time...

Powerful, convenient cross-platform productivity suite with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other apps for Windows, OS X, iOS, Android, and browser-based versions. Real-time collaboration in Word and PowerPoint. 1TB online storage per user.

The mobile versions feel slightly underpowered in the latest tablets such as the iPad Pro.

For cross-platform office applications, there's simply no alternative to Office 365. Word, despite some minor inconveniences, is the best of all word processors, and Excel is the no-contest best spreadsheet. PowerPoint is at the top of the heap among...

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...

Microsoft Office 2016


A few years ago, Microsoft was the unquestioned leader in productivity suites, but with Google Docs and a host of freeware office applications nipping at its heels, the company needs to show that Office and its associated cloud services are worth the...

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.

Microsoft Office for iPad Review


Touch friendly ; Free download ; Clean interface ; Robust formulas menus in Excel ; Easy to create PowerPoint presentations on the fly

Limited sharing options ; Requires Office 365 subscription to access full features ; Can't view others' edits in real time ; No printing option yet

Microsoft Office for iPad is a powerful, but pricey productivity suite that delivers a robust set of features in a touch-friendly format.

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
