Microsoft Office now on iPhone, but only for 365 subscribers


By

After signing in to an Office 365 account, you can access, view and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from anywhere. And, you can count on Office Mobile to keep all your content and formatting intact so the document still looks great when you're back on your PC or Mac.


Well, this is curious. Basically Office is finally available on iOS, but only if you have a Office 365 subscription. If you or your workplace uses 365, this seems pretty sweet. You can work with your documents from the cloud on your iPhone. But if you're just using the retail copy of Office for the Mac, which I'd guess a lot of Mac users do, there's not much for you here.

Office 365 Home Premium runs $100/year and includes the Office Suite and Skydrive for up to five computers.

The Office Mobile for Office 356 subscribers is for the iPhone/iPod touch. We'd assume an iPad version is in the works.
