Free Microsoft Office for iPhone, iPad and Android Tablets
Microsoft Office is one of those popular and widely used software which are installed in almost all Windows computers. I have seen many people and computer dealers who install Microsoft Office suite immediately after installing a fresh Windows in computers.
Although Microsoft Office is not free for Windows operating system but now at least its free for mobile phones and tablets. Yes, you heard it right.
Microsoft has just announced that Microsoft Office is absolutely free for popular mobile platforms such as iPhone, iPad and Google Android. In past, you had to purchase Office 365 subscription to use Office apps but now its no longer needed.
Office was already available for iPads but it was not free. Now Microsoft has released a new updated version of Office suite for iPad which is absolutely free now. It comes in form of 3 separate apps: Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
Similar to iPad, Microsoft has released all 3 Office apps (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) free for iPhone users.
