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.
