Don’t Fall for the ‘Microsoft Word 2012’ App in iTunes

MS Office is expected to come to the iPad later this year, and it looks like one sleazy developer has decided to take advantage of that fact.

A new app was released to iTunes yesterday which, based on the design and name, look to be intended to cash in on the buzz. I posted a screenshot at right, and as you can see this app looks like an office app. But what you’re actually getting is an ebook app which collects tips for MS Office.

And to add insult to injury the guide simply isn’t very good. It’s not even written very well, and there are no screenshots to help you learn. Fortunately this app is free at the moment, so anyone who does get it won’t actually lose money.

Still, I’d avoid it like the plague.
