CloudOn brings Microsoft Office combined with Dropbox for iPad for the very first time
When talking about Microsoft Office for Apple iPhone and iPad, the very first thing that will come to our mind is – “what the heck Microsoft is doing for these many years to bring Office for Apple iPad?” Apparently, it is one of those great secrets that carry the network going around for quite some time. Still there is no word from Redmond giant for the most demanded App by Apple users.
Meanwhile, CloudOn Inc have been advancing, and offers a product that can edit Microsoft Office 2010 documents on iPad for free. This app also comes with Dropbox so that you can open, view and manage your files in the cloud using Dropbox account.
CloudOn’s WorkSpace allows you to:
- Use Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint on your iPad to create or edit documents.
- Rename, delete and manage documents with your Dropbox account
- Display, edit or create charts, change formatting, spell check, insert comments, into any Word, Excel or PowerPoint files
- Track changes while reviewing Word documents
- Use pivot tables and insert formulas in Excel workbooks
- Display and edit animation or transitions in PowerPoint presentations
- Present in full PowerPoint mode (not in PDF)
- Open files directly from your iPad email accounts or Dropbox account
- Automatically save documents to avoid losing changes
CloudOn is a small startup based in Silicon Valley and is currently offering a free product for editing and creating Word documents, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as other features such as cloud storage using Dropbox for the very first time. Compatible with both versions of iPad (Requires iOS 4.2 or later), the application has just appeared in the form of trial.
Recently, due to overwhelming demand, the app experienced a few glitches and was forced to remove from the app store, but now the app is back again on Apple app store. The answer could not have been better, and such was the number of users who own CloudOn has decided to temporarily remove the app to strengthen their systems and ensure that everyone else is using it properly.
While we wait for Microsoft to officially develop such app for iPad, all interested in trying CloudOn can now download this App for free via Apple App Store.
