MS Office Online & Office Apps for the IPad
SME: Harvey Schoenman
Simply put, Office Online is a scaled down, but free, version of the full desktop version of MS Office. It makes an excellent introduction to the full version and, in fact, may be all that any number of people may need. These online apps do not materially differ from their counterparts on Office 365, a fee-based subscription version of Office, and are compatible with the desktop and 365 versions, not only in file formats but in touch and fell as well..
Would you believe that Microsoft has created free touch-enabled apps for Word and Excel available to iOS (iPad and iPhone) and Android tablet and phone users, even before they will (eventually?) have it for the Windows Phone? These are not read-only versions but full read/edit/create versions specifically written for touch-screen devices.
Also ask about Microsoft’s support of Dropbox, a direct competitor to MS’ own OneDrive
