‘MicroSoap Office’ is a highly complete app that integrates three representative mobile productivity apps of Microsoft, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Very useful features have been added to this app, and the capacity has been reduced compared to installing each app separately. Microsoft said, “The Office app is now available on the iPad. We have integrated the familiar Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps into one and optimized it for iPadOS. There are additional features that can increase productivity. For example, PDF “You can quickly create and sign files, and you can turn pictures into documents.”

IPhone and Android devices versions of the Microsoft Office app were already announced in 2019. It wasn’t available on the iPad, but it was finally listed as a support environment.

The new Office is a perfect app for mobile workers who need to work while on the move, reducing the hassle and supporting the functions they need. If you’ve used Microsoft’s separate productivity apps before, you can easily adapt to new apps. This is because very little has changed. On the other hand, it has the advantage of integrating three apps into one so that you can work on all three apps with a single app experience.

These changes are very helpful in keeping you focused and paying attention to your work. In the current era of telecommuting, there are many cases where it is necessary to write important proposals while caring for a child, and even small disturbances such as switching between apps can greatly hurt productivity.

Another small but significant improvement is the built-in Microsoft Lens technology. With just an iPad or iPhone camera, it dramatically reduces the hassle of turning images into editable Word or Excel documents, scanning PDFs and typing whiteboard content. Finding the documents you need is even easier, as you can do it from the home screen. Unlike the unprecedented’useless’ Clippy, the app’s Actions tab is very useful.

  • File sharing between phone and computer
  • Extract text from image
  • Extract table from image to Excel
  • Sign, scan, create, and convert PDFs
  • QR scan, form creation: access to Microsoft’s recently released Coach tool

Some of these tools, such as the ability to extract text and tables from images, are already available in individual apps. However, it’s much easier to use from the Tasks tab of the integrated Office app. These tasks support additional features such as:
  • Word dictation: You can call up the document content or quickly specify the document format with voice commands.
  • View Excel Card: Supports easy reading and editing of large accelerator tables.
  • PowerPoint overview: When you create an outline of the presentation, the app automatically converts the styling and format into slides.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has been strengthening integration with other cloud services in addition to OneDrive over the past few months. You can save your work results to other third-party cloud storage services, such as files and boxes. If you’re using an iPad for work, the All-in-One Office will be very useful. The Tasks tab allows quicker access to existing functions. The three apps are integrated, so you can expect the effect to focus more on your work.

The fact that users can easily use the most useful functions and solve their inconveniences means that using Office on an iPad is becoming as convenient as a PC. We hope that M1 Mac users will also be able to use the app. [email protected]
