'Office for iPad' hits top spot in Apple's free app category [Asian News International]

(Asian News International Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Washington, Mar. 29 (ANI): Hours after Microsoft rolled out its Office suite for iPads, the app became a hit and took the top spot in Apple' free app category.

Microsoft's productivity apps, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint claimed the first, second and third spots respectively.

According to PC World, this doesn't come as a surprise as demand for touch-friendly suite had been building for years, and the 'Office for iPad' apps are not just beautiful, but deeply functional.

Microsoft's OneNote note-taking app has taken up the fourth slot behind the Office trio and the company's decision to make Office Mobile for iOS and Android free has made the app take up the ninth position in the free app category.

Although, the free version functions just fine as a viewer, users are required to sign up for an Office 365 subscription to edit or create files, which costs 100 dollars per year, the report added. (ANI) (c) 2014 All rights reserved. Provided by, an company
