CloudOn was the very first application to bring Microsoft Office to your Apple iPad and link it to your DropBox account. This is a great app for Mac fans that still have an ongoing affair with Microsoft Office. For those of you on the fence between Microsoft Office or iWork, make sure you check out our previous post, Do You Prefer iWork over Microsoft Office, for more information on the pros and cons of each. The best part about CloudOn is that it brings Word, Excel and PowerPoint to the iPad therefor increasing productivity for when you’re on the go. These programs are presented in a format that is easy to use on your iPad’s interface as well.
The neat thing about CloudOn is that it also integrates with Box and Google Drive which means you can now connect with all three services to open, edit and store your files in one place. The folks over at CloudOn, Inc. have also added Adobe Reader and a File Viewer that allows users to open and view almost any file type including PDF, JPG, PSD, PNG, GIF and more. You can share files via email and web links as well. CloudOn is definitely an essential iPad application for all of you that create, edit, review, save and share documents on the go.
CloudOn is very Apple-ish with its simple home screen. Three buttons are displayed on the top portion of the screen including a button for choosing between a list or tile view, one for accessing account options, help, tutorials and one for creating new documents, spreadsheets or PowerPoint presentations. The navigation is simple to use and we know you’ll love it.
We love CloudOn because of its simple user interface; DropBox, Google Drive and Box integration, easy to use format and its ability to bring Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint to iPad users. We’re not surprised it became the number one app in the iTunes App Store after its January 5th, 2012 debut. You should definitely download this app as soon as possible as it’s free and we don’t expect it to stay that way forever. The folks over at CloudOn are paying a software-as-a-service licence fee to Microsoft and they will have to start charging one day soon to generate revenue.
