Recently, Microsoft unveiled Office for iPad, Android and iPhone at its cloud event a few days back. The new Office for iPad includes Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
All Office for iPad apps work great, but unlike Office for Windows, Office for iPad lacks the ability to print documents, spreadsheets or presentation from within the app, but it seems it will get it in the future update.
Office for iPad is without a doubt an excellent productivity suite, but in order to print a document or a sheet, you have to first transfer it to another device that supports printing like Office for Mac or Windows, and get the printing done.
According to a new report from PCWorld, Microsoft said in a statement, “We will continue to update the applications based on customer feedback and needs.” They further said, “Similar to other Microsoft apps (like OneNote for iPad) and the Office 365 service, we provide feature updates based on an ongoing basis. Since launching Office 365 last year, we’ve delivered more than 100 updates to the commercial and consumer services extending the Office 365 subscription value.”
For those of you who don’t know, Office for iPad requires an Office 365 subscription in order to unlock the full potential of the service, otherwise, the free version only let users view the files.
We’ll update you as soon as more information comes up about the addition of printing capabilities to Office for iPad.
