IPhone users have been begging for the ability to take their Excel, PowerPoint, and Word documents on the go since, well, the iPhone was created in 2007. Today, productivity dreams came true as Microsoft announced Office 365 for iPhone users. Available for download from the App Store on Friday, Office 365 Home Premium and ProPlus subscribers can use the app to view, edit, and comment on documents for no extra charge.
The iPhone app makes use of the cloud-based Office 365, available for $100 per year to be used across five devices like your work and home computers, or any other mobile devices. Using SkyDrive, the app syncs Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents to wherever you left off when previously logged in to Office 365. Documents are organized in the most recently opened panel, and can be identified by type with icons for Excel, Word, or PowerPoint.
