Microsoft today released an updated Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for iOS devices. With Version 2.29 update, you can make inking more fun with a sparkle animation on ink strokes.
To enable this feature, just toggle on “Sparkle Animation” in the Pen options and you’ll get sparkles as you write.

In Word, with the small and medium erasers, you can remove just small bits of ink instead of entire strokes.

In Excel, you can select Resolve to collapse comments and make open items stand out.

You can download the Word app here, Excel app here and PowerPoint app here from App Store.
