    Fantastic news today from The Daily, which has an exclusive scoop with all the details about the long-awaited Microsoft Office iPad app. According to The Daily, the app is finished and ready to be submitted to Apple for approval, which means that a release is imminent (assuming it’s approved by Apple, of course!). Matt Hickey at The Daily writes that he has actually had hands-on time with a working prototype of the app, and he says that the interface is similar to that of the OneNote app, and that it has certain similarities with design language Metro, which has been used in Windows Phone design and the soon-to-be-released Windows 8 OS. He doesn’t have much more in-depth information about the app at the moment, such as the all-important price point, and whether or not you will be able to buy the various components separately, but he is able to say that Word, Excel and PowerPoint files can all be created and edited locally as well as online. Look for it to launch within weeks. [/FONT]

      Look for CloudOn. Unless I have misunderstood something, thus seems to be pretty aggressively fully functioned for Office editing.

      So what should we search for, for the real one?

      When/if Microsoft releases Microsoft Office apps on the App Store you won't have to search and wonder. The announcements will be all over the place. Keep an eye on the news section of this forum if nothing else. It does a pretty good job of keeping up with the major stuff, and is rarely more than a day latter than the fastest feeds/blogs/tweets.

      Hi, I am using MS through Cloud On .. which lets you create, view and edit files ... It also lets you use Dropbox to manage your files .. open them, edit them, and save them right in your workspace using your Dropbox account ...

      Yep.....but if you check the first post this thread is about MS's own office app........but good info from you, so thanks.
