Microsoft has released Office Mobile for iPhone available for free from the Apple App Store for Office 365 Home Premium and Office 365 ProPlus subscribers. Similar to its free Office Mobile that ships with every Windows Phone handset, the iPhone app enables Office content viewing and on-the-go content editing capabilities.
After signing in to their Office 365 account, users can access, view and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from anywhere. And, they can count on Office Mobile to keep all content and formatting intact so documents still look great back on their PC or Mac.
With Office Mobile for iPhone, users enjoy:
- Consistent Office experience – Because Office Mobile is from Microsoft, formatting and layout remain intact when viewing, editing or adding comments, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes. When users return to their PC or Mac, documents look like it should.
- Easy access – Office Mobile is designed for people on the move. Users can quickly and easily access Office content in the cloud on SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro. When users are on their iPhones, they’ll easily find the content they’ve viewed on their computer in the Recent Documents panel. And, of course, users can view and edit Office documents sent in email.
- Office optimized for the small screen – Office Mobile has been optimized for the iPhone’s small screen so users can get important things done quickly. For instance, the Slide Navigator allows users to page through PowerPoint presentations fast while Speaker Notes help them practice presentations on the go. When reviewing Word documents on their iPhone, the Resume Reading feature takes users to the exact point in the document where they left off on their computer so they never miss a beat.
- Sharing built in – Users can make quick edits and share documents right from their iPhone with Office Mobile. When working with others, users can review comments in Word and Excel documents on their phone and add their own. When they’re done, users can save directly to SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro or just send as an email attachment.
