Microsoft makes Office for iPhone and Android completely free

Microsofts Office Mobile apps for Android and iPhone are now completely free for all home users. The company has done away with the need for an Office 365 subscription, opening up the full document viewing and editing capabilities of each app. No one likes making changes to a spreadsheet on a 4-inch screen, so it makes sense for Microsoft to give the software away in hopes of steering users to its desktop Office software and the all-new iPad version — which still requires an annual $99 Office 365 subscription if you want to edit anything. The free Office apps are intended for home use according to Microsofts update notes, which implies the company may still plan to hold businesses to that Office 365 requirement.
