Microsoft Office App for iPad Release Date Set for Nov. 10

May 31, 2012|11:56 am

The Microsoft Office Application made for the iPad will be launched on Nov. 10, according to a recent report from The Daily.

Various publications were reporting a November release date for the software and The Daily seems to have come up with an exact date.

The site also learned that the development team within Office Mobile finished its work with the project last month. The app is now in the hands of a usability team that is expected to appraise it and utilize the Metro design language for "Metro compliance" and suggest any changes that might need to be made, according to The Daily.

After the team signs off on the Office app, it will arrive at Apple next for the company's approval. That could end up taking a couple of weeks.

Tech site BGR previously reported on one of its sources that saw the Microsoft Office app already running on an iPad and described it as looking identical to a previous leak of the software that The Daily released months ago.

The Daily's description of the app seemed to match up well with BGR's sources claim.

It said that the app's user interface is similar to the current OneNote app, but that it has hints of Metro, the new design language that can also be found in Windows Phone and will appear in Windows 8. In the app, Word, Excel and PowerPoint files can be created and edited locally and online.

BGR's report states that the new app will be available for the iPhone and iPad. This contradicts a previous rumor that said that Microsoft Office would only make its way to Apple's tablet.

Microsoft is also expected to launch another version made for Android devices.
