As I had expected, Office for iPad fills a useful niche between Office Mobile for smart phone handsets and the more full-featured Office we see in Windows and on the Mac. But Office for iPad has been written from the ground up for Apple's device. And the only thing holding it back, really, is Apple's antiquated mobile OS.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/office/microsoft-office-ipad-review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/office/microsoft-office-ipad-review#comments iPad Mobile devices Office 365 OneDrive Office Thu, 27 Mar 2014 13:54:00 +0000 37441 at http://winsupersite.com
