Office Mobile for iOS Devices

For one thing, I have no idea how this was released and I didn’t hear about it. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time.

But another thing … wow. I didn’t expect it to be so freaking lame. You can’t buy it, like you can any other perfectly good MS Office compatible app, you have to purchase a subscription to it.

A subscription?! For what? The Microsoft Office logo? I have three apps that work perfectly to edit Office documents on iOS devices, and my favorite one is actually produced by Apple and only cost $9.99 per app … forever.

No thank you, Microsoft, you’re simply proving your time is over. You just don’t get it. You’re like the publishing industry that is trying to force the industry back into the little box you used to control.

Still, for any die hard Microsoft fans out here (which, if you are, you probably already know about this, and probably already have a subscription [LOL, I accidentally typed prescription. Twice. Freudian slip?]) here’s where you can go download your fix:

Office Mobile for Office 365 subscribers for iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd generation), iPad Wi-Fi + 4G, iPad (4th generation), iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular (4th generation), iPad mini and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular on the iTunes App Store.

Cross Linked Blog Posts

Just in case anyone got notices about a new blog post … twice … only to find nothing here, I had been posting a rather personal blog entry on a different website, but it accidentally ended up here.

And when I went to correct it and put it where it was supposed to be … it ended up here, again.

Yeah. Great. Oh well, it wasn’t anything dirty … just not something I meant to put on my writing blog.

Writing update: I’m still writing. One finished manuscript still cooling and I’m hopping between multiple other manuscripts, following which one I happen to be interested in at the time.

I’ve done some revamping on my photoblog, which is now powered by Tumblr under the hood… Check it out!
