Microsoft has been reluctant to the idea that they should release Microsoft Office apps for the iPad especially under the helm of the previous CEO, Steve Ballmer. Now, under Satya Nadellaâ€™s lead, the company seems to be rejuvenating thanks to the new changes. Shortly after the release of iPad specific Microsoft Office applications, they were already included in top downloaded apps from the App Store. And now, the Microsoft Office team announced on Twitter that there have been more than 12 million downloads since the release:
More than 12 million downloads of Word, Excel, PPT & OneNote for #iPad from the @AppStore <3
We can see that in just one week, Microsoft has managed to please millions of iPad users all over the world and this number is bound to increase even more in the future. All of the three apps - Microsoft Word for iPad, Microsoft Excel for iPad and Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad can be downloaded for free, but in order to create and edit files, you will need a Office 365 subscription.
Another big drawback is the fact that thereâ€™s no way to print the files with the free apps, but Microsoft hinted that this could be taken care off in a future update.
