The big Microsoft Office for iPad news is that it's here – today – and that it's completely free to download. But to use the full featureset you'll be required to have an Office 365 subscription which at present costs upto $120 a year, or $80 if you're a student.

Perhaps as soon as March 27. And perhaps by none other than brand-new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Microsoft OneNote for Mac is now official and is available to download from the Mac App Store. We heard just last week that it was on the way, and Microsoft hasn't disappointed. OneNote has been absent from the Mac until now, but what has been delivered looks in every way a full featured experience.
