Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 are here!

Unknown 11:04 PM
It was a big day for Microsoft and yes, we were excited to be part of New Delhi - #Windows10 Fan Event. 
We equally happy to share the availability of the Office Mobile apps on Windows 10— People can download & install these apps from the new Windows Store right now.
The new Office Mobile apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote have been completely redesigned for the touch based screen devices and they deliver the same experience as expected by Office users.

Here is the official press release from Microsoft:

Across each of the apps, customers will appreciate full fidelity viewing of their Office documents, knowing edits and changes made on any device will render perfectly across all their devices. Tightly integrated with OneDrive, the Office Mobile apps are fully cloud connected, making it easy to access your documents from anywhere, pick up where you last left off, and co-author with others on documents and projects. Your docs are now automatically saved for you, ensuring you won’t lose a change and that others can see your edits as you work together. And there are new intelligent features, like Tell Me, that make it easier for you to do what you want in fewer steps.
Each of the Office Mobile apps is uniquely designed to help you be productive on the go.
Word—Word Mobile has the features you’d expect for touch-first productivity. All the core formatting commands, styles, fonts and spell check tools are there. You can insert tables, pictures, text boxes, hyperlinks, and add headers and footers—even footnotes and endnotes—all with touch. You can easily share and co-author with other editors and utilize features like track changes and comments as you collaborate. We’ve also introduced some exciting features focused on mobility scenarios. For example, the Read mode is a new way to view documents: Word beautifully reflows your document to adapt to small screens and improve readability by adjusting font sizes and allowing you to zoom on charts and tables with a quick tap. Smart Lookup, powered by Bing, brings additional online resources like images and web references directly into your document to give you deeper insights and new ideas.

Excel—All the power and precision of Excel is now made easy for mobile. Reordering columns, adding formulas, changing chart types, and filtering data are effortless and natural using Excel’s new touch-first gestures. If you prefer to use the onscreen keyboard, you’ll find the familiar controls tuned for touch, so you can even do advanced spreadsheet work comfortably on a small tablet. Excel’s new Recommended Charts feature is ideal for smaller screens and gives you the power to quickly visualize your data with just a few taps. And we’ve added modern templates tuned for mobile scenarios, so you can be up and running quickly.

PowerPoint—Customers will appreciate the richness of PowerPoint Mobile’s presentation capabilities coupled with a touch-first design. You can easily make gorgeous slides with new touch gestures for inserting and editing pictures, tables, shapes and SmartArt. All the transition and animation effects that you’re familiar with on the desktop are built right in. And when you’re ready to present, cut the cables and engage with the audience more personally by presenting wirelessly. The Presenter View gives you full control over what your audience sees on the big screen and shows you (and only you!) your speaker notes on your tablet. And new ink, laser pointer and highlighting features let you emphasize key concepts as you present.

OneNote—Never forget again with OneNote. Capture, organize and share your ideas with notebooks that you can access on any device. Type, write or draw and find your notes (even handwritten) with lightning fast search. Bring them to life with tags, tables and pictures, and share your notebooks to work with others at the same time. OneNote automatically saves your work and synchronizes changes made by everyone working in the notebook. OneNote is pre-installed on Windows 10, so simply go to the Start menu and tap the OneNote tile to get started.
