    Last week we announced that Microsoft was officially releasing Office for Apple's iPad and shortly thereafter went hands-on to show you what to expect if you're an iOS user. Being an Android guy, I immediately headed to the Play Store so I could download the Android version on my 2013 Nexus 7. The link said that my device wasn't compatible with the app. What? Not compatible? How can that be? I've got Google's latest tablet running the latest version of the Android operating system! How can Microsoft Office not be compatible?! Android Support I pulled out my Nexus 5 and checked the same ...

    With all of the excitement over the release of Microsoft's Office for iPad, the newly free-to-use versions of Office Mobile for iPhone and Android phones, as well as the reveal of a touch-friendly version of Office for Windows 8 tablets at Microsoft's Build conference… it got me wondering if Windows Phone would ever see a more comprehensive version of Microsoft Office. Since Windows Phone 7 was released back in 2010, the only real changes to the mobile Office suit was removing OneNote from the Office hub and giving it its own app icon. Microsoft has said that the mobile Office is mainly ...

    We've heard it was coming. Rumors started closing in on a date. And this morning in San Francisco, Microsoft came through and delivered, announcing the availability of its Office suite of applications for the iPad. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are all going live in the App Store today, with full touch interfaces optimized for the iPad's screen. There's no sign of any new edition of Outlook, however. Microsoft is presenting these apps with a freemium model. Anyone can download the Office apps for viewing documents, but if you want to create or edit, you'll need an Office 365 subscription. ...

    A few weeks back, we started seeing new motion in an otherwise long-dormant story: the release of Microsoft Office for Apple's iPad. We'd been hearing about the idea forever, but it never seemed to go anywhere. But then last month rumors started claiming that a launch could occur by summer, followed last week by the suggestion that we wouldn't have to wait nearly so long, and Microsoft could unveil the suite at a March 27 event. Tonight the same rumor is back, with new sources doubling-down on Office for iPad launching tomorrow. This latest update comes to us from The Wall Street Journal, ...

    Are we ever going to see Microsoft release Office for the iPad? The app's been hanging like a just-out-of-reach possibility for ages now, but just a few days back interest in its release really picked upon, with the arrival of reports claiming both that a mid-year release might be possible, as well as that the software was essentially already completed, just waiting on Microsoft to push it live. Today we hear that a launch could be much sooner than we imagined, with claims that Microsoft will introduce Office for the iPad before the end of March. Specifically, sources are talking about the ...

    It's been years since we began hearing the rumors of Microsoft Office reaching the iPad, and we have everything but a product. Reports have it that Ballmer wanted to launch the Windows' touch-friendly variant of Office first, which is codenamed "Gemini", before launching the iPad version, which is codenamed "Miramar". Obviously with the recent executive shake-up that just happened at Redmond, lot's of things will change, and this is one of them. Sources close to Mary Jo Foley, famous for knowing what leaks we should trust, now claim that Ballmer had a change of heart before leaving the ...

    Back in June we saw Microsoft begin making some headway towards bringing Office to competing platforms, and witnessed the arrival of an iOS port of Office for the iPhone. While this was progress, we were also wondering when the same sort of package might become available for Android users. Today we get our answer, with Microsoft releasing Office Mobile for Android phones. That's "phones," specifically, because just like the iOS version, this one isn't designed for tablet-sized displays. It's also – just like on iOS – a subscription-only app, meaning there's no way to pay once and ...

    How long have iOS users been waiting for the arrival of Microsoft Office? We got our first real evidence that development on the project was underway all the way back in February 2012. Over the months that followed, we heard additional launch rumors, and caught some additional glances at signs revealing Microsoft's ongoing efforts. Most recently, a new set of rumors suggested that the whole cross-platform mobile Office initiative was seriously delayed, and we wouldn't see any iOS version until late 2014. We already saw that rumor get its Office RT info wrong, and today we learn that it was ...

    Microsoft Office has been threatening to expand to new mobile platforms for what seems like forever. Images purporting to show Office on the iPad arrived well over a year ago, and since then rumors have suggested that a release for iOS and even Android could be not too far off. Most recently, we heard the iOS Office mentioned in conjunction with rumors about a Windows RT version of Outlook - specifically, that iOS Office would arrive following the Outlook RT release. With the latter apparently ready to go, we were hoping that we'd see Office arrive sometime this year. A new roadmap now ...

    The first signs of an in-development version of Office for iOS arrived all the way back in February, but Microsoft has been very cagey about its existence ever since. We got a chance to see what appeared to be the app running on an iPad back then, and while Microsoft responded that the discovery was plagued by "bad info", it didn't elaborate and give us the full picture on what we could really hope to expect. Rumors have trickled out ever since, including some sourced to Microsoft's Czech division, and about a month ago we got a look at some screenshots which seemed to show the app in ...
