Rumors of a Microsoft Office app for iOS have been around for a while now, but a new report at The Daily is giving us a more accurate release date. Matt Hickey has written that various Microsoft teams are working to bring applications to the iOS platform. Development work on Office for iPad is now complete, and the app is now in the hands of the usability team.
The Daily reported back in February that they had a hands-on demo with a prototype of the app. According to them, the Office for iPad user interface will bear resemblance to the current Microsoft’s OneNote iPad app, and will allow iOS users to view, create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files.
Once the Microsoft development teams are done with the finishing touches, the app will be submitted to Apple for approval, and the sources say it may launch by November 10th.
In addition to its iOS effort, its rumored that Microsoft might also be working to bring the same version of their Office Suite app to the Android tablets in the same timeframe as the iOS release.
