Microsoft Outlook is one of the mostly used email client, especially in the corporate environment. Though it is a part of Microsoft Office Suite but it is mainly used as a standalone application to manage the emails, and also to manage other tasks like calendars, contacts, meetings, task manager, web browser, note taking, journal etc
The day Microsoft introduced Office 2013 and Office 365 products, the licensing and transferability mingling is confusing the common users. The questions which arise in the minds of customers before the purchase or during the installing of these software on another PC include:
As the users are getting more and more handheld devices, the companies are also releasing the apps for these devices in order to get the maximum user-base. No doubt, Apple’s iOS and Google’s android OS are two most popular operating systems for smartphones and tablets. Every other person now have one smartphone which he uses on daily basis to check the emails, update the facebook status and to perform other functions for which there is no need of big screens. People also use these device to check the documents, powerpoint slides and excel sheets or edit them when they don’t find PC near around them. Now there is going to be a big relief for all MS Office users having any Android device as Microsoft has just released Office Mobile for Android.
From today’s release of new Official Outlook Web App, it is now clear Microsoft is determined to spread its core business across different devices and platforms. Last month they released the much awaiting Office application for iOS platform. The reviews of Office Mobile 365 were mixed. The negative comments were made mainly due to its limitations – like it was released only for iPhone and it was usable for only those who had Subscription based account.
After a long time and long wait, Microsoft Office finally lands on Apple’s AppStore for small devices, i.e., iPhone and iPad devices. This product is not free. In fact you need to have Office 365 subscription in order to use on iPhone.
Microsoft Surface has a rotation lock hidden in the software. Unlike Apple’s iPad, there is no physical button present on Surface for rotation lock. iPad’s physical button, which is present on its side, can be configured either as a mute/unmute button or as rotation/orientation lock/unlock button. Apart from this physical button iPad also has a rotation lock option hidden under Switcher. As Surface runs on Microsoft’s Windows operating system so the rotation lock is located somewhere else.
Microsoft has just released an update for the users who are running MS Office 2013 RT Student or Home Preview edition. The update which converts the preview build into final release is 586MB in size. The new package will update the following applications of Office 2013 RT.
If you are following the updates, you may know that Microsoft has announced Windows Phone 8 officially with the codename “Apollo“. Unfortunately this new version will not support the existing devices. To bring the new features of Windows Phone 8 to the current Windows Phone 7.5 devices, Microsoft will be rolling out an update Windows Phone 7.8 soon. This step will really make the Lumia users happy to some extend.
Everyone was expecting it and microsoft has finally made it. Microsoft Surface is just announced at a press event in Los Angeles. Apple iPad’s competitor, Microsoft Surface is Windows 8 tablet which will be released in two flavors, one powered by Intel 22nm Ivy Bridge Chips with Windows Pro and the second powered by ARM chipset loaded with Windows RT.
After the much hype Microsoft has finally revealed in a post on its blog that three editions of Windows 8 will be released when it is available. There are no Home, Premium or such flavors. This time they came up with new naming strategy. They’ll be releasing Windows 8, Windows 8 Pro and Windows RT soon.
