Microsoft Brings Word, PowerPoint And Excel To iPad

Cult of Mac:

Each Office app features a slimmed down version of the dreaded ribbon interface, but it seems like Microsoft has prioritized editing tools to make the workflow easier on the iPad. “I want to do my best work on Windows and I want to do my best work on iPad and I want all of that to accrue to Office,” said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to Re/code. “It’s really about being able to go where the opportunity is. If we can serve customers who expect our Office 365 everywhere … we will do well.”

It seems new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is admitting that he needs to embrace the iPad and stop fighting against it for Microsoft’s benefit. The Surface – Microsoft’s tablet-come-laptop is never going to outsell the iPad so concentrate on Microsoft’s strengths and get your software on Apple’s devices Nadella- everybody wins.
