Office For iPad gets Print Support

Last month, Microsoft launched iPad apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint as part of the Office for iPad suite. All three of the apps are now updated with printing capabilities using Apple's AirPrint software. AirPrint is a feature in Apple OS X Lion and iOS that lets you wirelessly print to an AirPrint-compatible printer without having to install drivers.

Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint for the iPad are free to download with limited features. The free versions of the apps support the ability to view documents, but requires an Office 365 monthly subscription to edit. The monthly subscription price of Office 365 starts at $6.99.

Shortly after launching, the three Office apps jumped to the top of the free download rankings on the Apple App Store. Microsoft said that “millions” of people downloaded the apps in the first week and thousands of users sent feature requests. The most requested feature from users was the ability to print documents.

Each of the apps have different print options. Word for iPad app lets you print a document with or without markup. Excel for iPad can print a selected range, a single worksheet, or an entire spreadsheet. And PowerPoint for iPad lets you select the pages or slides you want to print.

The updated PowerPoint for iPad app includes a feature called SmartGuides. SmartGuides allows you to align pictures, shapes, and text boxes so that you can move them around on a slide. This feature helps with making presentations look professional.

Excel for iPad was updated with a feature called AutoFit. AutoFit lets you adjust the width of multiple rows or the height of multiple columns at the same time with just a few taps. This prevents content in Excel from becoming hidden.

About the Geek Mind

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.
