Microsoft quietly slipped Office Mobile for Office 365 into the iTunes App Store Friday. The application, which itself is free to download, brings Microsoft's productivity suite to the iPhone. In order to edit Word documents on the iPhone, however, Microsoft is requiring a subscription to Office 365.
The new application is optimized for the iPhone 5, but will work on other iOS devices such as the iPad. Office Mobile for Office 365 lets iPhone users create, open and edit Office documents, including Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Speaking Hebrew, I found that so far all of the so-called "MS Office compatible" mobile apps neglected to support non-Latin scripts.
I also wonder why Android is neglected by so many app writers! I read that Android based mobile devices passed iOS. Isn't it?
