Today, we're releasing Office Mobile for iPhone available at no extra charge from the Apple App Store for Office 365 Home Premium and Office 365 ProPlus subscribers. Similar to our free Office Mobile for Windows Phone that ships with every handset, the iPhone app enables great Office content viewing and on-the-go content editing capabilities.
After signing in to an Office 365 account, you can access, view and edit Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents from anywhere. And, you can count on Office Mobile to keep all your content and formatting intact so the document still looks great when you're back on your PC or Mac.
When we launched Office 365 earlier this year, we committed to delivering regular updates and new capabilities to Office 365 subscribers. Since then, we've expanded Skype calling and added new OneNote features. Office Mobile is another great example of the value of subscribing to Office 365, and I can guarantee you, there will be lots more to come.
So, let's get into the fun stuff and look at what this app can do!
Because Office Mobile is from Microsoft, your formatting and layout remain intact when viewing, editing or adding comments, thanks to support for charts, animations, SmartArt graphics and shapes. When you return to your PC or Mac your document looks like it should.
Excel on Office Mobile for iPhone
Office Mobile is designed for people on the move. We made it quick and easy to access your Office content in the cloud on SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro. When you're on your phone, you'll easily find the content you viewed on your computer in the Recent Documents panel. And, of course, you can view and edit Office documents sent in email.
Recent Documents on Office Mobile for iPhone
Office Mobile has been optimized for the small screen of your phone so you can get the important things done quickly. For instance, the Slide Navigator allows you to page through PowerPoint presentations fast while Speaker Notes help you practice presentations on the go. When reviewing Word documents on your phone, the Resume Reading feature takes you to the exact point in the document where you left off on your computer so you never miss a beat.
You can make quick edits and share your documents right from your phone with Office Mobile. When working with others, you can review comments in Word and Excel documents on your phone and add your own. When you're done, you can save directly to SkyDrive or SkyDrive Pro or just send as an email attachment.
If you don't already have an Office 365 subscription, a great way to try Office Mobile is to sign up for an Office 365 trial at http://www.office.com/. And of course, if you're already using a Windows Phone you have Office Mobile already installed on your phone.
For those of you who want to see the app in action, check out this video. You can also learn more at the Office 365 Tech blog.

@jimstanger, the Office Tech blog (blogs.office.com/.../office-mobile-for-iphone.aspx) has a list of qualifying products. Unfortunately, you need a subscription that includes the Office client (i.e. ProPlus or equivalent). An "E3" plan, for example, qualifies.
@Mothi, it is coming to India and 124 other markets very soon. Stay tuned!
@esnestlehmann, .edu subscription are supported today. Office 365 Education A3 and A4 and Office 365 University subscribers can use the app now.
@joe, we are making sure everything goes smoothly for you by letting us poor Americans work out all the kinks first :). It's coming soon to a market near you, so stay tuned and thanks for your patience.
@knightnet, not sure I'm following your question, but taking a stab. To access your SharePoint files, you select SharePoint as a source in the Office Mobile app. Then it just works courtesy of the magic of software. Give it a try. It's pretty seamless. Let me know if I've missed your question.
Why has the Onenote app not been updated?? It was last updated in 2011. Its pretty useless currently.
I know I won't ever see the intro text ever again once I sign in, but please make the intro text flush left instead of justified on the activation screen. This is just ugly: http://i.imgur.com/3zcWkdN.png
Once I signed in, I was very happy with the app. I know a lot of people, including those who look on with envy at my Surface Pro on my morning commute, who have been waiting for this and look forward to the app formatted for the iPad. Now if only the OneNote app were updated, too...
And an Ipad optimised app when ??
Hi Clint. Reading the FAQ, it seems that you need an Office 365 subscription that includes Office web editing. We have 8,000 licenses on E2 SharePoint which does NOT include Office web as we have Office 2010 via a separate enterprise Office license. Will this combination work?
On my own personal home laptop, I have a copy of Office 2013 via a business partner license & it is connected to the consumer Live.com (which DOES include Office web). Does THIS work with the app?
Do either of these setups allow me to edit the documents stored in the enterprise SharePoint Online?
Thanks for the clarifications. Julian Knight.
@Julian, unfortunately, I don't think any of those options qualify. You need an Office 365 subscription that includes the Office client apps. In this blog (blogs.office.com/.../office-mobile-for-iphone.aspx) there's a QA near the bottom that spells out the various qualifying packages. If you are not covered, I'd recommend a convo with your MSFT rep on the best way to get Office Mobile since you guys sound like you are running a lot of our stuff! Thanks!
I've been looking for a better way to access access on the go
In retrospect I'm not sure if my comment really contributes much to this discussion.
when is it coming to ipad??
How about an Outlook component for iOS? This would be incredible if it were to have the same features as the desktop with a smaller footprint. Also, what about the ipad version?
What about Office for iPad? It makes more sense...
