Microsoft Word review
Microsoft Word is an application allowing to create and edit textual files. It is very popular and known by everybody who has Microsoft Office installed on a desktop or laptop. But now it is available for mobile devices and this is really cool because it is packed of useful features if you work at documents.
When you open the downloaded app, and you will see a big MS Office splash screen, which asks you to sign in to a OneDrive account. When the job is done, you will see three tabs in front of you: Recent, New and Folder. Here you will find respectively: your recently open documents, newly created ones and those which are saved on OneDrive folder.
It is possible to view textual files here and send via e-mail without any efforts and difficulties. It is easy to work at a document together with the members of your team sharing the file with amendments. You can leave your comments in this shared document just near the text itself.
In general, viewing is optimized for mobile screen that is why it is very convenient to look the docs through. While editing is a little be different. You can work only with formats docx, xlsx, pptx. Formatting choices are not rich, indeed, compared to its desktop version and other apps. You will not be allowed to amend heading, fonts, etc. But you are able to make the letters bold, increase or decrease size of the fonts, make it italic or underline a word, make the sentences written in yellow, red, or green color. There are no other hues. Also, it is impossible to insert images into a document.
Still, we suppose, that the word processor is handy. If you know a desktop version, you will cope with its controls easily. It will be of help especially if you are involved in blogging, writing, studying, or working at a project when there is a need to prepare documentation and write texts. It introduces a mobile PDF reader allowing you to open PDF files and edit them. You convert PDF to Word document or vice versa. Moreover, you can use the app just to read e-books in this format when you want.
Apply a wide range of efficient tools enabling you to perform various tasks and benefit from the best options. There are particular formats of letters, assignments, notes, or resumes with ready modern templates. You can change formats applying advanced options. It is possible to write down the thoughts or any text using various fonts, colors of letters. Set various distances between paragraphs. All your choices will be saved, and a document will look like you have created it on any device. The editor allows to revert if you want to view all changes made before and see the history of improvements.
Almost any task is performed here with a couple of taps. You are suggested to manage permissions and see who is working on the documents.
Microsoft Office is the most popular and powerful office suite. The Word is a part of it constantly updated with new features which you will find in a new interface and other details of the mobile version. Comparing it with its desktop versions we could say that it is almost the same. You will download it easily if your device is compatible with the requirements of the developer. For instance, it supports Android 4.0 and above.
- Plenty of useful options;
- Interface looks like its deck version;
- Improved graphics features.
- Editing is still restricted.
