The increasing use of smart Phone,iPhone and iPad have led Microsoft to evolutionize the Office for touch screens and fingers that’s why Microsoft had done some work on Office 2013 to make it more finger friendly.
Keeping in view that the Office applications have grown substantially closer with shared features such as a common spell checker, Visual Basic for Applications scripting language.
Microsoft did this in a way by making icons bigger and identifying the most essential features.
- For Microsoft Word,Microsoft has put the most important formatting options,Text and images can easily be highlighted and manipulated with the finger–as is the case most iPad word processors.
- For Microsoft Excel,you are able to suggest formatting options to save time digging through menus for a specific type of graph.
- For Microsoft Power Point,on the iPad it’s as touch-optimized as you’d expect, allowing users to build presentations with a few taps and swipes.
Of course, the larger question is whether it matters that Office is now available for the iPad. For years, there have been scores of productivity apps available in the app store, including Google Drive and Apple’s own iWork suite !
