We can now edit Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents from the iPhone thanks to the Microsoft Office 365 application. We can do this if we pay an Office 365 plan and have the documents we want to access synchronized in the cloud with Skydrive or SharePoint. That is, it is not a full version of Office and it is only available for the iPhone.

After many months of rumors, Office has finally arrived on the App Store, but exclusively for iPhone. It is not a full version either, but Office 365, with which we can only edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations . In order to use it, you will have to pay a monthly subscription.

This is Office’s first approach to the iPhone, but of course, as is often the case, it is far from being a full version of Microsoft’s office suite for iOS devices. With Office 365 we can edit the Word, PowerPoint and Excel documents that we have synchronized in our Skydrive account or in a SharePoint.

The monthly fee we will have to pay is a subscription to an Office 365 plan, which will vary in price depending on our space and resource needs. At the moment, Office can only be downloaded from the US App Store , but Microsoft Ibérica has announced that in the next few days this same application will reach 135 countries and will be translated into 29 languages.

Just because we can edit our Skydrive documents does not mean that we cannot download them for editing offline , i.e. without an internet connection. We certainly hope that Office will reconsider its position in the future and release a full version for iOS, as we don’t know much about it.

We may be looking at a competitor to iWork and Google Drive, but at the moment, Office 365 seems more business-friendly , as it is designed to be used primarily by people who need to edit or view a document on a daily basis, at any time.

We’ll see how this application evolves and if Microsoft decides to introduce another one for a more general and more complete public, as is the case with the iWork suite for iOS. Because, at the moment, I don’t think this application can stand up to Apple’s office suite due to its great deficiencies.
