Office Mobile for iOS Devices

For one thing, I have no idea how this was released and I didn’t hear about it. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.

But another thing … wow. I didn’t expect it to be so freaking lame. You can’t buy it, like you can any other perfectly good MS Office compatible app, you have to purchase a subscription to it.

A subscription?! For what? The Microsoft Office logo? I have three apps that work perfectly to edit Office documents on iOS devices, and my favorite one is actually produced by Apple and only cost $9.99 per app … forever.

No thank you, Microsoft, you’re simply proving your time is over. You just don’t get it. You’re like the publishing industry that is trying to force the industry back into the little box you used to control.

Still, for any die hard Microsoft fans out here (which, if you are, you probably already know about this, and probably already have a subscription [LOL, I accidentally typed prescription. Twice. Freudian slip?]) here’s where you can go download your fix:

Office Mobile for Office 365 subscribers for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular on the iTunes App Store.
