Microsoft Updates Word, Excel And PowerPoint Apps For iOS With Multitasking Support And More


Microsoft today updated their Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for iOS with support for multitasking, keyboard shortcuts and more. Find the full change log below.

Change log:

• Multitasking (iOS 9): get tasks done faster by running PowerPoint for iPad side by side with other apps. For example, copy numbers or a chart from Excel into PowerPoint, or an image from Safari.
• Keyboard shortcuts*: no need to learn keyboard shortcuts by heart. Just tap the Command key on your external keyboard to get an overview of all shortcuts.
• Mirrored User Interface in Arabic and Hebrew*: Office apps now has a mirrored UI when the device language is set to Arabic or Hebrew.
• Now available in Vietnamese.
• Office Add-ins: add tools that help increase your productivity in PowerPoint and enhance your presentations. For example, a word cloud generator, an audience polling tool, a live stock ticker, and more (requires iOS 8.2 or newer).

Update Word app here, Excel app here, and PowerPoint app here from App Store.
