Microsoft Office for iPad Gets Update


Microsoft Office for iPad Gets Update
Printing now supported...

Following the hugely successful launch of Microsoft's Office for iPad, the company has issued a new update to the software that introduces a slew of new features and improvements, including the much sought-after printing functionality that rendered the software a touch on the impotent side.

Following feedback from users, Microsoft identified the most requested features for the productivity suite and implemented the major ones into this first update. On top of the ability to print (which includes some flexible features across Word and Excel), users can also look forward to the SmartGuides feature for PowerPoint which makes the previously tricky task of aligning images and text a lot easier.

Office for iPad launched last month, offering both free and paid solutions for users. The free option allows users to read, but not edit or save documents, while the paid option (costing around $70 for a year-long subscription) grants users a multi-device license, and the ability to save, edit and create new documents. In total, Word, Excel, PowerPOint and OneNote have been downloaded more than 12 million times from Apple's iTunes App Store.
