It's been a long time coming, but Microsoft and Apple are finally teaming up to bring Microsoft Office to the iPad.
On Thursday morning, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella made the exciting announcement at a press conference, where he revealed Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint would soon be available for iPad users.
The applications will be free of charge if a user simply wants to view the documents. However, in order to edit or create documents of their own, iPad users will need a subscription to Microsoft Office.
The decision to add the popular applications to the equally popular device has been a long and winding road as Microsoft initially refused to add their programs to the iPad. Microsoft and Apple are pretty much rivals, after all. However, the addition of Office to the iPad is a pretty smart move as the iPad is a much more dominant, in-demand device.
The applications are now available for download on iPad.
