Office Finally Comes to the iPhone. But Does It Matter?

This is a stripped down, mobile-friendly version that runs in conjunction with Microsoft’s cloud services.  Microsoft says it has been “optimized for small screens” which seems like a good idea for something that runs on a small screen.”  Commentary on Wired, with a video.  Of course I still use Office, but never subscribed to Office 365 (must admit, I’ve heard good things about cloud-based Word though few people I know use it vs. Google Docs.)  Downloaded the app, only to find an in app purchase requirement for 99.00, which is what it evidently the fee to have Office 365.  Must be the reason nobody uses it – everyone has Google Docs already…. but here’s the article at Wired.
