Microsoft Launches Office Mobile for Office 365 Android Application; Supports Document Sync!
If you’re an Android user envying the guys with Windows Phone 8 devices and the way they’re working with Office, starting today you can do that on your devices as well. That’s right, Microsoft launched Office Mobile for Office 365 for Android.
Last month Microsoft launched Office Mobile for Office 365 for iOS and now they’re giving us an Android version. The software allows you to edit documents on the go and sync them with SkyDrive. The UI is pretty much the same one of the Windows Phone 8 version, but with a flatter design that feels like the whole Holo experience. The app supports Word, Excel, PowerPoint, charts, animations, shapes, comments and SmartArt Graphics.
The application will reformat the documents so they’ll look better on your handset and when I say handset I mean it, since the app is only available on phones, without a special version for tablets. The last files you edited will appear in the Recent Documents tab, so you can continue your work. Sharing is also supported and you can download the app from here.
The catch is that the software is only available in the US, but Microsoft is promising to add more countries to the list soon. You’ll need an Android 4.0+ phone to make this work and an Office 365 subscription, too.
