Office-iPhone-apps-02

Microsoft announced today that it’s rolling out standalone Office apps for iPhone after releasing the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps exclusively for iPad earlier this year. Microsoft previously had an “Office Mobile” app for iPhone that integrated features of all three Office apps, but today’s release of standalone Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps for iPhone are officially replacing Office Mobile as Microsoft’s Office solution for iPhone.

Microsoft is also delivering updates for the Office iPad apps that include new features along with the ability to create and edit for free. The ability to edit previously required a paid subscription to Office 365. The company also said the updates make sure the apps offer “a consistently beautiful and productive Office experience on every device.” The apps are also getting Dropbox support, something the companies announced earlier this week.

The new Office apps for iPhone and iPad are available as universal downloads starting today— Word, Excel, PowerPoint— and available in 29 languages and 136 countries.
