New MyOffice App Makes Office Ubiquitous

If you visit the Store and search for “MyOffice” here’s what you’ll see:

Generally Available MyOffice App Makes Office Ubiquitous

The new app works with subscription (365) Office versions. I actually had to launch my copy (already installed, it seems) from the Launch button on its page in the Windows Store (I couldn’t find it via the Start menu, but I’m running Start10).

MyOffice also works when you’re offline if you have local executables, and will work with Office Online if you don’t (but you have to be online for that to fly). Also, MyOffice works with equal facility on Windows and non-Windows devices. That included Android and iOS phones, as per my recent “try-and-see” maneuvers just now. Access to the Google Play Store and Apple AppStore works, or you can check the “Office for mobile devices” offerings from MS.
