Microsoft recently launched the Office Mobile for Office 365 suite, especially tailored for Android smartphones. This application provides access to Word, Excel and PowerPoint, optimized for mobile viewing. You can now open and modify your documents even if you’re not close to your computer… This can be a real plus when you work on the road or travel frequently.
A few of the interesting features: the layout and content remain intact even after you make modifications, and your documents will remain consistent when you switch from the computer to the smartphone. Graphics and animations are fully supported, the display is impeccable, email sharing is very easy, you can insert comments and data is automatically stored in the cloud.
An essential complement to the Office 365 suite
The application is free to download, but users need a valid subscription to Office 365 in order to use the programs. This subscription, offered by Microsoft, will enable using Office 365 services on several PC or Mac computers, as well as on multiple mobile phones. The number of devices allowed depends on the type of package chosen and the needs of your business.
The main benefits of Office 365 lies in its cloud integration: the documents can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, and will always be synchronized. You can start a document on your Mac at home and continue on your PC at work. With your Android smartphone you can even make last-minute modifications in the taxi while own your way to that important presentation!
“With the launch of this application, we want to reaffirm our commitment to provide added value to our Office 365 subscribers,” explained Guy Gilbert, senior product manager at Microsoft.
Worth noting: as of now, this application does not work on Android tablets. The Office Mobile Suite is available on Google Play. Here is to another way to increase your productivity through your smartphone!
