According to PC World, Microsoft will add printing functions on Office for iPad.
Early reviews of Microsoft's Office for the iPad are showing the lack of the ability to print. Although iPad users can still produce hard copies through Apple's AirPrint feature, only a few printers are able to support the protocol.
It may not be a priority for Microsoft. Besides, we're now living in a paperless society. But for a few iPad users out there, professionals and students for example, the need to print documents is still essential.
Fortunately, Microsoft is adding printing functions on the Office for iPad soon, in a forthcoming release. In a statement sent to PC World, Microsoft said that it will continue to update the application based on customer feedback and needs.
That could be a good sign. Microsoft revamped Microsoft Office from the ground up to work flawlessly on the iPad, and to be fair, reviews have been impressive.
"Similar to other Microsoft apps (like OneNote for iPad) and the Office 365 service, we provide feature updates based on an ongoing basis. Since launching Office 365 last year, we’ve delivered more than 100 updates to the commercial and consumer services extending the Office 365 subscription value," Microsoft added.
