Microsoft Previews Unified Office App For iOS And Android Devices

Microsoft today announced a new Office app. The app will include 3 Office suites—Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and said to offer all the standard features. In addition to a unified application experience, new features include intuitive camera integration and Action Pane in which implements a more efficient way to accomplish things with the iPhone and iPad.

The three-in-one Word, Excel and PowerPoint app are the same as before and compared to installing multiple independent applications, this can put together all Office documents, minimize the stress in dealing with transitions between apps and drastically reduce the storage space it uses on your phones.
The Office app provides a simple, integrated experience that puts the tools you need for working on a mobile device at the forefront of the experience. We started by combining the existing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint mobile apps into a single app. Doing so brings all of your Office documents together in one place, reduces the need to switch between multiple apps, and significantly reduces the amount of space used on your phone compared to multiple installed apps. We then added new capabilities that harness the strengths of mobile devices, such as the camera, to enable you to create content in uniquely mobile ways. Finally, we added a new Actions Pane that helps you accomplish many of the common mobile tasks you need to do all from one place.
However, if the user wants more advanced features, they can still download the standalone version, but Office 3-in-1 offers some basic features that are sufficient enough for use on the iPhone.

Microsoft has also added new features to the app that can take advantage of cameras to create content. In addition, the new Action Pane helps users complete several common tasks in one panel, including:
  • Create PDFs with your camera, using photos on your device, or from Office documents.
  • Sign PDFs by simply using your finger.
  • Scan QR codes to open files and links.
  • Easily transfer files between your phone and computer or share instantly with nearby mobile devices.
Microsoft has already launched a public preview of the new Office App today, which is currently only available on Android and Apple smartphone phones, it does not currently support iPad or those tablets running on Android. Although Microsoft is testing the Office app through TestFlight, the beta is full.
