Microsoft released Office Mobile for the iPhone last month and as the days and weeks passed, many began to wonder when Microsoft’s popular productivity software would finally arrive on Android. The answer: today. Microsoft on Wednesday announced the immediate availability of Office Mobile for Android, which is available at no additional cost for Office 365 subscribers. Office Mobile for Android offers an experience that is very similar to the iPhone app, with Word, Excel and PowerPoint document creation and basic editing on board. The experience is smooth, albeit limited, and the interface is extremely clean, just as we have come to expect from Microsoft apps. Office Mobile for Android is available for download immediately in the Google Play store.
