Microsoft Office for iPad review: Yep, it's good

Office for iPad is here. That means you can now download touch-optimized, tablet-specific versions of Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint from the App Store and view or present Office documents for free. If you want to do anything more than that, if you want to edit them, you'll need an Office 365 subscription. That can run you anywhere from a few to quite a few dollars per month, depending on the type of account you get. If you're a business user who already has a subscription, you've no doubt been waiting for Office for iPad for a long time and either had to or wanted to get it the minute it became available. If you're not a business user, however, the question isn't just whether Office for iPad is good or not, but whether it's good enough to warrant the recurring price. So, is it?

Reproducing the iOS 7 Home screen... using Microsoft Word

Gotta hand it to Vaclav Krejci, by sheer force of will and commitment to concept, he bent one of the most unwieldy apps in the history of computing into a pretty good static duplicate of iOS 7's Home screen.

Microsoft launches Office Mobile, brings subscription Word, PowerPoint, and Excel to iPhone

Microsoft has brought Office 365 -- excuse me, Office Mobile for Office 365 subscribers -- to the iPhone, allowing anyone up-to-date with their fees to view and lightly edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint docs on the go. Support is offered for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics, and shapes, and Microsoft claims that you don't lose any formatting when you edit on your iPhone.

Microsoft Office once again reportedly coming to iOS, seriously

After countless rumors, Microsoft Office is once again said to be on its way to the iPhone and iPad (and Android). Office for iOS will reportedly consist of separate apps for Word, Excel, and Powerpoint, and will require a Microsoft account to use. The basic Office apps will allow users to view their documents, but an Office 365 subscription will be required for editing.

Microsoft’s Office for iPad caught in the wild, could be heading to the App Store very soon

Back in November, The Daily claimed that Microsoft was working on a version of its hugely popular “Office” application for the iPad. It has now followed up its original story with a picture of Office running on the iPad and the notion that it is now complete and very close to being submitted to Apple for approval.

CloudOn briefly offers Microsoft Office to iPad users with full Dropbox support, then disappears

CloudOn, a free iPad app that offered Microsoft Office functionality with Dropbox support, appeared briefly in the App Store yesterday before going up in a puff of smoke a short time later.

CloudOn has responded saying their app has "sold out", but we think this may have had something to do with server overload.

Thanks for your support of CloudOn! We're currently sold out. We look forward to the feedback we will receive as we continue to support the many users that have registered in this first phase.

iO5 5 has a hidden auto-correct word bar, can be enabled without jailbreak

iOS 5 appears to have a hidden word correction bar which can be enabled without the need for a jailbreak. Discovered by Sonny Dickson, the word correction bar works in a very similar way to Android devices. If you want to turn on the auto-correct bar, the good news is that you do not have to have a jailbroken device. Having said that, it is a bit fiddly -- editing plists and restoring backups, just like the hidden camera panorama mode discovered on Monday -- so if you decide to try it, be careful and remember this is at your own risk!

Quick Review: Pages for iPad

Having a virtually full-fledged word processor like Apple's Pages iWork app [$9.99- iTunes Link] on the iPad is a big deal. There has been a lot of discussion, however, about how Pages would work on the iPad. How do I transfer/ sync documents? How will my formatting be effected?

I had to use Pages to do some document editing for a house flyer for our home (we are in the process of selling). I figured what a great opportunity to give Pages a spin. First, I had to get the document on the iPad. Email or iTunes? The Pages file was 12MB so I opted to transfer it via iTunes. The process was simple; I selected the Pages app from the bottom of the Apps tab with my iPad attached to my iMac. I clicked the add files button and chose my Pages file. I synced the iPad and my house flyer appeared in the document list in pages.

After importing the house flyer into Pages, I was not greeted with any formatting warnings (to be fair I have imported Microsoft Word documents and did receive warnings. It was hit and miss; some documents looked identical, others, not so much) and I began editing immediately. But, there was one problem...

TiPb Apps #1.4 -- Documents To Go for iPhone to get Google Docs, Desktop Sync (MWC 2010)

We just finished having a sit down with the fine folks from DocsToGo and they shared some exciting news about DocsToGo Premium: Desktop Sync and Google Sync are en route! They expect they'll be submitting the app to the Apple in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for the release. DocsToGo is currently $14.99 in the App Store.

Document Sync with the desktop works just like you would expect it to: plug in and Sync. What's more exciting for me (and for cloud-lovers everywhere) is that you'll be able to sync with all the documents you've stored up at Google Docs. It's a full sync client - meaning that you can download and edit documents offline and then sync them up with Google Docs later. Another thing worth noting is that Google recently updated Google Docs to allow you to upload any file - which means you will be able to upload and store PDFs, images, and documents to Google Docs and then access them later with DocsToGo. (Video after the break!)

Otherwise, as it always is with major mobile conferences, the iPhone isn't officially here but unofficially it's everywhere. My completely unscientific method of "hey, what's in people's hands" poll shows that it's slightly edging out Nokia as the most popular phone at Mobile World Congress.
