Will they or won’t they? That’s been the question for months now revolving around whether the folks at Microsoft would be releasing an Office app for iOS.
This morning, Microsoft answered that question by releasing a verison of Office for iPhones — one that requires an Office 365 subscription.
Office Mobile for iPhone, as Microsoft is calling it, is free from the Apple App Store for Office 365 Home Premium and Office 365 ProPlus subscribers.
The app allows users to view and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. Microsoft says the app has been optimized for the small screen with features such as “Slide Navigator” that allows users to go quickly through PowerPoint slides. Users can also review and add comments in Word and Excel documents and store directly to SkyDrive.
Microsoft announced today that there are now more than 1 million Office 365 Home Premium subscribers, reaching that mark in about 100 days.
In addition, the company says the new Office — which includes Office 365 Home Premium, University and ProPlus, as well as the traditional software versions of Office 2013 — has become the best-selling Office edition, with more than one sold every second. That would add up to about 20 million licenses or subscriptions sold, according to a Microsoft spokeswoman.
