Microsoft has officially released its all-in-one Office app for both iOS and Android which was announced in November last year and was available for limited Google Group users and 100,000 iOS testers that registered via Apple’s TestFlight program.
The new Microsoft Office App comes in packed with Word, Excel and PowerPoint. The app offers a homescreen that lists every file you’ve recently created, edited or accessed across the three apps.
On the bottom of the screen there’s a plus icon that reveals three additional options: Note, Lens and Documents.
Note: It creates a post-it style note that is immediately added into your chronological feed, it could be useful to scribble thoughts or reminders during meetings that you might need later.
Lens: It is a document and whiteboard-scanning tool that’s been available for years as a standalone app and now been added to the new app.
Documents: It brings up nine shortcuts that help you get started in each of the Office apps. These include Blank Document for Word, Scan Table for Excel and Create from Template for Powerpoint.
On the bottom, it also includes an Actions button that offers furthermore shortcuts that are very useful and users might not know exist on the app.
