Microsoft Office for iPad hits the App Store

Office for iPad First Look - now available

If you watched Microsoft’s San Francisco press event earlier today, you know there’s big news–the much anticipated Office for iPad applications are available for download in the App Store today as of 11 Pacific. Excel, PPT, and Word are all available individually and for free download. If you’re looking to just read Office documents from your iPad, you can use the apps for free, but editing rights will cost you an Office 365 subscription.

With the auto-save feature ensuring you won’t lose your work and the friendly ribbon interface and document editing abilities, you’ll see a lot of familiar features as you download each app. Plus, access your Camera Roll photos to add to docs or presentations, and get used to the 123 numerical keyboard in Excel. Get used to making your PowerPoint presentations on the iPad and then presenting them from it.

Downloaded the new Office for iPad apps and ready to dive in? Be sure to watch Jess Stratton’s free course Office for iPad First Look to get a head-start.
