Microsoft Office Now Available as Android App

Microsoft has released Microsoft Office Mobile 365 app for Android users. The app lets MS subscribers access, view and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint documents on their phone. The release follows the release of a Microsoft Office app for iPhone which launched last month.

The app lets you access and work on MS documents from your Android phone. Once you are done editing a document, you can save it to the Microsoft cloud SkyDrive or email it to yourself. Here is more from the Microsoft blog:

Office Mobile has been optimized for the small screen of your phone so you can get things done efficiently.  When reviewing Word documents, the Resume Reading feature takes you to the exact point in the document where you left off on your PC so you don’t waste time searching. The new Slide Navigator lets you browse through PowerPoint presentations fast while Speaker Notes help you practice on the run.

The app is free, but requires an Office 365 subscription to work. You can sign up for a free 30 day Office 365 trial here.
