Office for iPad Already Downloaded 27 Million Times

Julia White, General Manager of Microsoft Office Division, revealed that the new Office for iPad Suite has been downloaded at least 27 million times. It’s hardly been one and a half month since its launch on March 27th of this year.

Microsoft for iPad is a free to download app, but it’s not free to create or edit. In order to do so, users must be paid subscribers to Office 365. White did not reveal how many users have signed up since the launch of the new app. Even so, Microsoft Word is the number four most popular free app among iPad users with Google Docs at number eight.

Membership to Office 365 is $9.99 per month for 20 GB of storage on up to five devices for up to five users. Interested users can test-drive a trial month for free.
