Microsoft Office 365 was already available before you could get your hands on Office 2013, and as you would imagine has proved very popular because consumers and business users have embraced cloud computing.

Okay, so we know that the online-based version of Office has limited features, but with Microsoft acknowledging that they plan to offer more frequent updates for 365, it builds us with confidence that more useful features are to come.

It’s obvious that Microsoft is going to stick by the standalone version of Office for the foreseeable future, but knowing that they are to launch several new applications from their portfolio in the cloud shows that subscription version of their software will take precedence in the future.

We have found ourselves unable to make the switch to Office 365 because we hate the thought of having to pay out monthly or yearly for something when there could come a time when there is no need for it. There is also the fact that we have to make certain that the funds are always there to pay for it.

Knowing that Microsoft is to offer more regular updates for Office 365 thanks to this report, we would like to know what features do you think needs to be improved, along with your wish list for new ones.

While this may be good news for those who pay the subscription service, it is about time that Office for the iPad was finally released. We touched on this very subject last month because not having an iOS app for Office is not only an issue for iPad users, it also costs Microsoft billions in lost revenue.

It’s about time that Apple and Microsoft came to an arrangement because it’s costing both companies a huge amount of money in lost revenue.

    I personally refuse to rent “Office”. Even if you can install on 5 computers. I have a Surface with 8, a PC with 7, a PC & laptop with Vista, & a laptop with XP. So, I could only install on 2 out of 5. Not cost efficient.
