Use Microsoft Office on your iPad (for Free) with CloudOn app

Apple’s own Pages and Numbers work just fine for creating documents, though there are undoubtedly those who’d much prefer to use Microsoft Office on their iPads. While Microsoft has yet to come out with official apps for their productivity suite, we’re one step closer to the real thing thanks to today’s release of the free CloudOn for iPad. With CloudOn, users can finally create/edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint docs on their iPads, presumably all in the “cloud”.

For the first time you can get Microsoft Office® on your iPad. Seriously.

CloudOn lets you use your iPad to create, view, and edit files directly in Microsoft Word®, Excel® & PowerPoint®. These applications will work the way you expect them to, and your files will look the way you want them to.

To use CloudOn, you must have a Dropbox account, where all your created files are saved. If you don’t have one, you can sign up on the Dropbox website, or directly from within the app. The app’s also only available at this time in the US App Store. No word on when the service will be rolled out internationally. For those with a US iTunes account however, it’s worth checking out just how well this all works, especially with the free price tag.
