Office 365 For iPad Launched, Office Mobile for iOS And Android Made Free

Microsoft Corporation has launched their fastest-growing commercial product ever - 'Office 365' for iPad devices today. The move, that critics have labelled as "too late", was done on Thursday along with many other announcements. Starting Thursday, Office 365 users can simply add an iPad to the subscription field stating the devices intended for Office 365 usage. This will enable them to use the Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Power Point on their iPads. These three apps will be available for download from the App Store for free. Arguably, the Apple iPad has been a trendsetting product in the tablet market and despite Android's growing market share, iPad seems to still retain its position, #-Link-Snipped-#.


Microsoft also announced free Office apps for Android as well as the App Store, as it was rumoured earlier. Office 365 can now be installed in upto 5 iPads and also on upto 5 PCs or Macs, all within one subscription. Microsoft stated that this development was part of their 'mobile first, cloud first' propaganda. They also said that the Ofiice App for iPad was developed from 'ground up' rather than simply adapting it for the tablet. Microsoft hopes that this will allow their customers to simultaneously edit and update documents on all of their devices. Also, using Microsoft's OneDrive, users can share their content with others and work simultaneously with multiple people on the same document or presentation.

The Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) was also announced by Microsoft on Thursday. The EMS is a comprehensive device, identity and access management tool which also provides cloud-based security. This package contains Windows Intune, Azure Active Directory Premium and Azure Rights Management Services softwares. The Azure Active Directory Premium provides cloud-based identity and access management with single sign-on to over 1,000 popular software as a service (SaaS) applications, self-service tools, and machine-learning-driven security reporting and anomaly detection enabling a reduction in an organisation's IT costs. Also, the users could be managed more easily and access for SaaS applications can be controlled.
