According to sources leaking to the Daily, Microsoft has a version of its popular Office suite of productivity apps under production for the iPad.
Microsoft, bringing Office to the iPad, is crossing the frozen DMZ that separates its products from the Evil Empire (from its perspective), Cupertino. Microsoft has ignored the iPad largely as a commercial opportunity, and perhaps for too long. Office is a massively lucrative portion of the Redmond realm, and given the huge install base that Apple can boast in regards to its slate, it could earn even more if it was released for iOS.
Of course, Microsoft has its own tablet operating system in the works, but for now the iPad reigns supreme, and almost alone, so the move to create Office for iOS, as the company has for OS X, is not too surprising. iPad to Mac Transfer, the excellent iPad to Mac transfer, is specially designed for Mac users to fast transfer, rip, copy and manage your music, video, photo, ePub, pdf, audiobook, podcast and TV Show files from iPad to Mac, iPad to iTunes.
All of this is well and good, and rather feasible, but what is most unusual is this: In fact, it’s likely the cost will be around the $10 price point that Apple has established for its Pages, Numbers and Keynote products. To phrase it another way, Microsoft is about to drop a half-ton of wet cement on to Apple’s productivity applications that have, thus far, been supreme. Apple’s offerings are not amazing, mind you, but they are the most popular, assuredly.
Don’t make us have to take a course to know where things are each time we upgrade…and let us open our files from 5+ years ago when we had different OS and version of Office. That’s the only way I’d buy it.
Office is popular on both Macs and PCs because it’s a quality product. If the iOS edition can match the normal version in performance, and crucially, usability, then it could be a hit. In fact, it could be a beachhead for other salable Microsoft products on the tablet. Of course, it will be taken as an early indication of how well Microsoft ¡®gets’ touch, heading into Windows 8.
If the iOS edition of Office lacks, it will cast a pall over the prospects of Windows 8; if Microsoft can’t get this right, how can it handle an entire operating system? Blu-ray to iPad Converter for Mac features powerful BD cracking capability. It is able to decrypt AACS and BD+ encryptions applied in recently released commercial Blu-ray movies.
Deadly cheap meaning even less usability and carry forward than ever before?…as if that were even possible. The Word Password Recovery allows you to disable the entire protection for the document. Actually our company’s powerful server does all the work of finding the decryption key to disable document protection.
