We all like to be able to stay productive on the move… Don’t we? Well, to give workaholics the chance to stay even better connected to the office on their mobile and tablet, Microsoft have now officially launched Office Mobile and Office Web Apps for iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone and Android.
Office Mobile already comes installed on Windows Phone 8, but it’s now available for iPhone and Android users. Giving access to Word, Excel and PowerPoint files on the move, it includes the ability to view documents and edit content, while retaining the original formatting, so that when it comes to accessing the file on a Mac or PC, there won’t be any nasty surprises.
For iPhone and Android users, Office Mobile is available to download from the iOS App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded, existing Office 365 users can sign in using their account credentials for free access, while non-existing subscribers can sign up for a free trial of Office 365 on the Microsoft website. If you’re a Windows Phone user, access is already free.
Office Web Apps (OWA)
Microsoft have also launched their Office Web Apps for iPhone and iPad. In order to use it, you’ll need to have the latest version of Office 365 for business and Exchange Online, but this collection of apps give users the chance to sort, scan and respond to emails, and to stay on top of their schedule.
With OWA, you can:
- Organise your email quickly with Conversation view, Mark as Junk, Flag and categorise emails.
- Quickly search or browse email in all folders including Outlook favourites.
- Schedule meetings using attendee free/busy and room finder.
- View shared calendars including delegate support.
- Use your voice to look up a contact or bring up your schedule.
- Benefit from data protection features including remote wipes and a separate passcode.
To access OWA, pay a visit to the iPhone App Store or iPad App Store depending on the device you are using, or if you’d like to find out more about Microsoft Office 365, head on over to the main Jigsaw24 store.
