Microsoft Introduces Unified Office App on the Phone

Microsoft Office beta for Android combines Word, Excel and PowerPoint

Microsoft today dropped a brand-new Office Mobile app that brings Word, Excel, and PowerPoint together in one place. The app basically combines the functionality of the other three apps and will allow users to view and edit documents and presentations. The new app is definitely a really nice addition to the Office family, and it will be interesting to see if Microsoft will eventually phase out the standalone Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps in the future. At its Ignite conference on Monday, Microsoft announced that the app is now available to all Android and iOS users in public preview; Android users can sign up here, and it's available on TestFlight for iOS here. Microsoft will continue to support individual apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint. And yes, Microsoft claims the all-in-one Office mobile app will take up a lot less space on your phone compared to "multiple" installed titles.

You can also access your Sticky Notes to jot down quick reminders and snippets of information you don't want to forget. One of them is the ability to capture a picture of document or table and turn it immediately into editable Word document or Excel table respectively. It puts the tools you need on mobile at the forefront of the experience, and gets rid of everything else.

The new app, which is available both on Android and iOS as a preview, includes a home screen where users can find all their documents.

You'll be greeted by all your documents when you first open Office Mobile.

Store and access documents on cloud storage or device memory. For PDF actions, there are options to sign or scan PDFs, or convert images or documents to PDFs. The inbuilt capability to scan QR codes for opening files and links quickly is another striking feature.

It is aptly named Office Mobile, and it is specifically designed for phones.

If you don't have a bunch of files already stored locally, the app looks pretty bare.
