Office 365

Microsoft officials said last month that the company’s newest Office 365 subscription plan — Office 365 Personal — would be available later this spring. On April 15, Microsoft made Office 365 available for purchase for $69.99 per year, or $6.99 per month. The Personal version of Office 365 allows users to install Office apps on one PC or Mac, plus one Windows tablet or iPad. The addition of the iPad is new, and enabled by Microsoft’s recent launch of Office for iPad. (Office for iPad is free, but only rudimentary capabilities are available to those who don’t subscribe to certain Office 365 plans which include the fully-featured version of the Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps custom-built for iPads.) For users who want/need Office to be installed on more devices, Microsoft is still selling Office 365 Home — formerly known as Office 365 Home Premium.
