Office for the iPad

released for the this past week, and a quick survey of some of our members has yielded, no surprise, mixed reviews. First, the complaints: massive app size – 200MB per application is seriously bloated. Can you open documents to view? We haven’t received a consistent answer to this.

It’s worth mentioning this brought back one complaint we’ve heard before, and that’s the move from a license purchase to an annual subscription basis, which we’ve seen many major software companies migrate to.

What’s your experience with Office for the iPad been? Any bugs, or hidden features you’ve encountered? LEt us know!
