CloudOn’s free cloud-based Microsoft Office client for the iPad just got its first major update, bringing support for storing your documents with Box.net, in addition to the Dropbox support the app already featured.
For those of you unfamiliar, CloudOn is a virtual Microsoft Office terminal for your iPad, allowing you to access and use the desktop version of Microsoft Office through the cloud, while CloudOn’s own servers do all of the actual work.
CloudOn’s WorkSpace allows you to:
-Use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your iPad to create or edit documents.
-Rename, delete and manage documents with your Dropbox account
-Display, edit or create charts, change formatting, spell check, insert comments, into any Word, Excel or PowerPoint files
-Track changes while reviewing Word documents
-Use pivot tables and insert formulas in Excel workbooks
-Display and edit animation or transitions in PowerPoint presentations
-Present in full PowerPoint mode (not in PDF)
-Open files directly from your iPad email accounts or Dropbox account
-Automatically save documents to avoid losing changes
The design of the app has also been updated to more closely match the iPad’s look and feel. CloudOn is a free download from the App Store, and is available now (free, App Store link). CloudOn would be a fantastic app even at $50, making the fact that it is absolutely free even more significant.
