With the free app, users can quickly and easily edit, save and share Microsoft documents on the go. The catch is that You have to be an Office 365 subscriber to use it.

The new app can be used only by people with an Office 365 subscription, which costs $100 a year or $10 a month. A bit of disappointment for Android and BlackBerry   and also APPLE IPAD USERS as its not available on these devices.

Ipad users can use a Web version of Office, which requires a constant Internet connection. The app comes with some limitations as you can create new documents in Word and Excel, but not in PowerPoint, which comes only with viewing and editing capabilities.
