    Default Microsoft Unveils Cheaper Office Subscription Plan for iPad, Mac Users


    In late March, Microsoft finally unveiled Office for iPad.

    As hoped, Office for iPad brought with it Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and all the bells and whistles that you would want on Apple's industry-leading tablet. But access to Microsoft's Office suite would not come cost-free. From the start, we were told that a subscription would be required. And today we have new details about the latest package made available this week.

    In an effort to drive accelerated interest in the Office suite on iPad and Mac, Microsoft's Office 365 service now presents a Personal subscription plan for $69.99 annually. This is $30 cheaper than Office 365 Home, which came with a $99.99 annual price tag.

    "Office 365 Personal is a subscription service built to help you get things done from virtually anywhere and any device," Microsoft says of the "Personal" plan.

    Office 365 Personal enables you to install the latest full desktop version of Office applications, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Outlook, on 1 PC or Mac, in addition to 1 Windows tablet or iPad so you can use all the features offline as well as online. You can also install Office on multiple smartphones.
    In conjunction with the new package, Microsoft has launched a corresponding landing page for potential subscribers to learn more. To check it out, click here.

    I don't know why they don't advertise/price it as "$6-8 a month or $70-100 a year!" instead... That $70-100 just does not look attractive at all.

    Oh, Microsoft.

    Microsoft will keep dropping the price. No one is jumping on board cause it's to much money.

    now thats whats im talking about when we people work together we can get things done and prices to go down. I agree im not going to get it. there are many free alternatives, to be honest looks like subscriptions will be the future of software to making money, they want to keep the control going.
