Microsoft has announced the launch of Office Mobile for iPhone, for its Office 365 subscribers. During this launch, it appears to be US-only (Go Canada!):
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.
Office Mobile for iPhone will allow users to make changes and have them synced in real-time when you return to your Mac or PC. Files stored in SkyDrive can be accessed and edited within the app, plus documents sent via email can now be edited and viewed as well. In order to use the app, you must have an Office 365 subscription which runs $99 per year.
