Re: PowerPoint! Word! Excel!

"why the (...) would anyone want to create / work on a document or excel file on a 5 - 6 inch screen beats me"

- I don't have a laptop/desktop with me so tiny screen is better than no screen

- I don't want to get my laptop out just to quickly check/alter something

- I'm viewing my phone screen on a TV or monitor and am using a full sized keyboard and mouse

Microsoft, I have in the linked press release, statement stated:

"The new Office mobile app represents our vision for what a productivity solution would look like if first built for mobile devices. In designing this new experience, we first considered how people’s expectations differ when using a phone versus a computer, so we set out to optimize for simplicity, efficiency, and common mobile needs. Next, we explored how to better incorporate the unique ways that people input data and create content on a mobile device – essentially turning the phone form factor from a liability for doing work into an asset."

Sounds like BS but it'll be interesting to see what they do.
