As we reported yesterday, Microsoft's Word, Excel, and PowerPoint finally made their way to the iPad, and they're already smashing successes just a day after their release. All three apps currently occupy the top three positions for free apps on the iPad App Store, and the fourth is occupied by Microsoft's redesigned OneNote. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella celebrated the news on Twitter, saying, "looks like it’s a productive Friday for #iPad owners!"
Once upon a time, Microsoft Office for iPad was was hailed as the office suite that would make Apple's tablet a worthy work product for professionals. And now, years after the device's first appearance, it appears (via a report from ZDNet), that we may get it after all. The big question, of course, is if it's too late to matter.
