12 Million Office for iPad Downloads Clocked Already
Apple's tablet ecosystem proves profitable for Microsoft...

Following the launch of the eagerly anticipated and oft-delayed Office for iPad last month, Microsoft has announced that combined downloads for Excel, Word, PowerPoint and OneNote have now exceeded the 12 million mark - although it must be taken into consideration that OneNote has been available since 2012 on the platform, and Microsoft didn't go into any details as to how the downloads were split across the suite.

The news was announced this morning when Microsoft's Office Twitter account posted:

More than 12 million downloads of Word, Excel, PPT & OneNote for #iPad from the @AppStore <3>

The software comes in two separate flavours, the free versions which allow users to open and read Office documents, and paid versions which require an Office365 subscription, costing between $70 and $100 per year, with each price point featuring different limitations on the number of devices it can be used on.

Interestingly for users of the iPhone and Android versions of Office, Microsoft has opted to make editing and saving documents free of charge for home use, while business users will still need to pick up a subscription.
