Microsoft may finally have broadened its horizons and brought its famed Office suite to the likes of iOS and Android, but many lesser-known productivity apps have well and truly established themselves over the past few years. Today, one of the more poplar Office alternatives for iPhone and iPad just went completely free, and besides offering a jaw-dropping $14.99 saving, this may well be the only office-like tool you’ll ever need to pick up from the iTunes Store.
The longer Microsoft waited in the seemingly never-ending development of Office of Android, iOS et al, the number and quality of competing options continued to heighten, and Mobile Systems’ OfficeSuite Professional for iOS is one of many apps to have taken advantage.
Not only does it allow you to view, edit and create your bread-and-butter office documents like Word, Excel and PowerPoint, but it also covers your PDF files as well, and with cloud support through iCloud, Google Drive, Box, Dropbox WebDAV and Microsoft’s own OneDrive, it covers all bases.
Aside from touting an impressive list of features that also includes email sharing, OfficeSuite Professional is also fairly enjoyable to use, with a clean, intuitive user interface that doesn’t fall victim of trying too hard to impress. In fact, the app is very easy on the eye indeed, and with a robust, in-built file browser to back up the pretty exterior, OfficeSuite Pro is a great all-round productivity hub.
The company behind the app has continued to throw out updates in recent times, and even though the app is now completely free of charge, Mobile Systems still has plenty of enhancements in the pipeline for users of OfficeSuite Professional.
The real clincher for OfficeSuite is that it’s now absolutely free of charge, and if you’re looking for a nicely developed productivity app for iPhone or iPad, now would be a very good opportunity to fire up the App Store app and pick this one up.
As aforementioned, OfficeSuite would ordinarily set you back $14.99, so this is one of the better deals currently running on iTunes, and remember that once you have it on your account, you’ll be able to benefit from all of the future updates that Mobile Systems plans to throw out.
