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...

Microsoft Office for iPad review


A great suite of iOS office applications, but it's disappointing that an Office 365 subscription is needed to make full use of it

That's not to say Excel for iPad is without niggles. Navigating spreadsheets generally works well, but you can only zoom out to a certain degree, which makes it difficult to traverse extensive spreadsheets, and impossible to get a large-scale overview....

Review: Microsoft Office for iPhone


Free for Office 365 subscribers, but is it worth it?

But you'll need to jump geo-block hoops.

Microsoft Office 365


This is the current latest version of Microsoft Office, it has a very new and somewhat sinister edge to it in that it is now a item that comes with a licence to allow its use for 12 months after that you need to pay to keep using it.

Reviewed: Microsoft Office 2013, should you upgrade?


A major part of Office 2013 is incorporating support for fingers and thumbs, and the brigade of tablets, sliders, hybrids and touchscreen laptops that is now beginning to swamp the market.

Although consumers and businesses are turning more often to Web-based software and mobile apps, many millions still depend on Microsoft Office to get their work done every day. The folks in Redmond want you to use Office wherever you go—on your PC,...
