Apple iOS owners can look forward to the app as soon as the coming weeks

Apple has announced a variety of upcoming launches recently, and now, Apple fans can add another item to the list of releases to look forward to -- an iPad version of Microsoft Office

According to The Daily, the Microsoft Office Suite app for iPad has been completed by a design team and will soon be sent to Apple for approval.

The Microsoft Office Suite app will feature Word, PowerPoint and Excel, where files can be "created and edited locally and online."

The Daily mentioned that a prototype of the software showed that the interface resembles both the OneNote app and a bit of Metro, which is the new design for Windows Phone and the upcoming Windows 8 operating system.

There currently is no Microsoft Office Suite app being created for Google's Android mobile operating system, but Apple iOS owners can look forward to the app as soon as the coming weeks.

Apple fans also have other new releases to look forward to in 2012, such as the iPad 3's debut during the first week of March, the launch of OS X Mountain Lion, and iTunes/App Store redesigns.

My thoughts, the iOS version will likely be a paid app, where for Win8 it will be integrated right out of the box like WP7 with no extra cost. If that's the case, it is a good move. Keep spreading the influence of Office as far as possible, make boatloads of cash from it, and integrate it as an incentive to buy their own stuff instead.

Best thing, nobody can blast them for being a monopoly in the mobile world.

I find it interesting the MacOS version of Office is superior (especially Office:Mac 2011) to the PC version.

The only thing that is superior is the complex you have......
