Microsoft Office now on iOS

The long rumored Microsoft Office for iOS is finally here.
But before you celebrate, let’s just be clear here. It’s just available on iPhone. No iPad version yet although you can still run it on iPad. You need an Office 365 subscription which cost S$138 per year in Singapore. And for some weird reason, the App is only available in US iOS app store for now.
Other than that, it is a good first step. All the Office documents that are stored on SkyDrive or SharePoint. You can still do offline editing.
This is clearly not meant to be a standalone app. It is only useful if you have an existing Office 365 subscription. It just doesn’t make sense for anyone to sign up Office 365 just to use Office on their iPhone. But hey, if you are an existing Office 365 subscriber, here is one more place where you can edit your documents.
