Writers Rejoice: Office for iPad is here!

2014-03-27

A few years ago (where does the time go), I wrote about Microsoft’s Surface and why every writer should own one.  I still feel that way, but a lot of people already have iPads with keyboards and various accessories and don’t want to commit to a new tablet and ecosystem. The iPad has long been merely a consumption device where people go to play games and watch videos. Now, thanks to Microsoft, you can turn your iPad into a true productivity machine.

What do you get? Touch centric versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneNote.
The price? Free to view and present all documents. $9 per month for Office 365 for the ability to edit and create documents (a must for any writer). The best part about the Office 365 subscription? You always get the newest version of Office for free, and you can install Office on up to five PCs, Macs, or iPads!

With Office on iPad you are now free to create anywhere, anytime.
