Office for iPad Already Nearing 30 Million Downloads
Fewer than eight weeks ago, Microsoft took the wraps off of the long-awaited Office suite for iPad. In that short period of time, Microsoft has found immense success in the land of iPad.
Microsoft says the app has been downloaded some 27 million times, rapidly attaining a level not expected to be achieved for a substantially longer period of time.
Microsoft's Julia White confirmed the app's huge success during Monday's keynote at the TechEd customer conference in Houston, Texas. White serves as general manager of Microsoft's Office Division.
Microsoft still requires users to hunker down their cash for an in-app subscription if they want to unlock and utilize all the bells and whistles offered by the software. Office for iPad, however, is still a freemium app because users can access/view documents at no charge.
