Am I the only one picking up a theme here? And I truly love the fact that after months of Surface commercials that pounded on the fact the iPad “has no keyboard,” Microsoft proudly mentions for all three apps: “No keyboard required.”

I’m downloading the apps as I type, and will be taking a run at using them, (for some reason, I am an Office 365 subscriber), and will report back later.

Microsoft Word for iPad, Excel for iPad, and Powerpoint for iPad are all available free, (well, kinda – See the first paragraph above), in the App Store.

  1. Bruno Philipe says:

    The “no keyboard required” statement is very amusing. I believe this just shows how desperate Microsoft is.

  2. Eric Jaeger says:

    Not sure how MS is desperate. They made over 24bil last quarter, 14% increase in revenue, and 2.8 increase in net income.
