Microsoft's Office for iPad Apps Hit Over 12 Million Downloads in First Week
Microsoft today announced that its Office facility for iPad apps has collectively hit more than 12 million downloads on AppStore in just one week’s duration after the launch. Microsoft has launched separate Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote apps for its Office for iPad. Word, Excel and PPT apps got launched recently. However, OneNote app for iPad had been launched a few years ago. But Microsoft did not give any breakdown of downloads for each of the Office apps separately.
Actually the newly released Office facility for the three iPad apps of Excel, Word and PPT hit the top in free app charts on the App Store just a day after the launch. Currently, these three apps hold all the three top positions of the free app rankings of the iPad App Store. And the OneNote for iPad app is at the 6th position on the chart.
These apps hit the top because these are free and Microsoft really convened the promotion of these apps in a favorable manner. Apple also placed a catchy banner for these apps on top of its App Store. People like these apps and the reviews have been good so far. Although these are free apps if you want to utilize the full editing features of the software, you have to pay an annual subscription fee of $99.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
