"Fashions fade, style is eternal." -Yves Saint Laurent
As Yves Saint Laurent - renowned French fashion designer - once said, "Fashions fade, style is eternal." And isn't formatting your documents just another way to showcase your personal style? But when it comes to saving and sharing documents online, sometimes your style is, well, less than eternal.
When you're on the go, there's nothing better than being able to store your documents online so you can access them when you need them, wherever you are -- a coffee shop, a co-worker's computer or even on a mobile phone.
But as anyone who's saved a document online knows, your documents on the web don't always match the documents you created on your PC - a chart's gone, or an image disappears, or something funky happened with the spacing. There's nothing worse than spending hours perfecting the look of a document, only to lose all that rich style - YOUR style -- when you save it online.
Until now! With the Office Web Apps, you can access your great-looking documents saved online in SkyDrive from almost anywhere AND be confident that your formatting will stay consistent - whether the document is on your PC or on the web. Not all online software programs can say the same.
To read more about how the Office Web Apps compare to other online software, read a recent blog post here.
If you don't have a Windows Live ID, you can sign up for free. Once you have a Windows Live ID, you can access your documents online by logging into SkyDrive - your personal storage space online.
Maintain your personal style - no matter how you define it - wherever you go with the Office Web Apps.

Will this feature work on an iPhone4? What is needed to make it work? If so I will make use of it and dump another cloud program that has been troublesome from the very start.
@Larry M.: The Office Web Apps have a view only mobile experience. Editing is not optimized for mobile platforms, and even if you force the desktop mode, the experience is not a supported scenario.
It looks like there is no outlook on this app. I want to switch to an android phone but am having a hard time finding one that will sync (not just transfer files) with outlook. I make daily changes to contacts and calender so I need office and moblle platforms to update daily. (I know iphones and blackberry will do this via a cable)
Do I need Office 2010 to access files directly, without uploading and downloading them each time? I know that it can work, I had the beta version and this was a great feature. You took it away with the final version.
@Rgr A - The "Open in Client" button (such as "Open in Word") will do exactly what you are requesting. It does not require Office 2010, but does require Office 2003 or newer and a supported browser.

"It was already time!"_ Would say my friend from Peru!
That is great!
Is it possible to use this hosted on a local, internal server rather than on a "cloud" server hosted somewhere else?
To help keep track of amily schedules. Will see.
I find using my creativity a lot of fun when creating documents
