iPad always stayed on top of all its competitors owing to the openness of Android. It was in the pipeline since the last November. Recently Apple broke the ice by letting out the news that the most revered office software will soon be available for the iPad. The software is supposedly submitted for approval of Apple corps. But still it is not a major attraction for the android users as Google themselves has their own Documents suite which is a suitable alternative to the absence of MS Office
Many major developers had consulted Apple to offer backing to iPad, CEOs had in mind a motive to seize the golden opportunity to be the interface o the Microsoft enterprise. Because of the delay Microsoft apps poses in being released, a desktop widget has been released by another developer to deal with office files. The app released will be specially designed in terms of touch and build concept.
According to the sources, the app will deal with the kind of files and create them on the iPad and will sync to the clouds of Microsoft. Storage service of Microsoft, Sky drive is likely to be compounded for syncing. The news about the release of the app was made along with the announcement that Windows 8 will accompany Sky net application which is a storage service of Microsoft.
The app package will feature Microsoft word, Power point and Excel. The inclusion of the rest in the package is dubious because there is no information on that as far as we’ve seen. The app is rumoured to have a look like the one note application of Microsoft with metro user interface. There is also some information on the release of Metro style office suite15 which is due to be released next year.
Microsoft is currently readying up office suite for Mac OS. The preparations are rumoured to cross almost final milestone builds as they are ready to set off next year. The android lovers are not in much of a fancy when they think of the Microsoft office suite which is already on the pipeline. Office suite app will be probably exhibited in the CES this year.
Microsoft already has pervaded its services onto many renowned software platforms and they are planning to expand their phase of growth onto iPad and tablet devices which are a new ground of growth for them too.
