    My daughter needs this on her iPad for college and she is telling me its 80 per year.

    Is that right? Can't you just download of buy it outright?

    Yeh, you need to buy office 360 then you can use office in an online format on tablets or as many pcs as you like, it doesn't install just opens in a webpage I think, or pay a one off fee for just one PC

    If you really need the MS cloud features of office at college then it's a bit difficult. Otherwise you might be able to get away with Documents To Go which can create and edit Office files. Not the best looking app, but it has the best compatibility with Office. The free version of office on Android can't even open local files.

    When Microsoft first unveiled versions of its Office apps for Mac and iOS devices, these apps were quite limited, with the iPad version offering some editing features, but only to Office 365 subscribers, and the iPhone version read-only. But these days iDevice users can access and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents on their phones and tablets without Office 365.
