Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint were one of the most eagerly anticipated apps to hit the iPad in quite sometime. Today, the entire suite of apps have received a new update that allow them to print over the air.
According to a Microsoft Office Blog post “Your top request is here! You can now print Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations to an AirPrint printer. In Word for iPad, you can choose to print a document with or without markup. In Excel, print a selected range, a single worksheet or an entire spreadsheet. Of course, you can select the pages or slides you want to print.”
You can read Word documents, view Excel data, present with PowerPoint, and print your documents with the free iPad apps. With an optional Office 365 subscription1 starting at $6.99 per month, you can edit and create documents on the iPad.
