Includes Home, Personal tiers
Microsoft has today updated the Office iPad apps -- including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint -- with in-app purchases of monthly Office 365 subscriptions. These are divided into Personal and Home tiers. The first costs $7 per month, and is limited to one iPad and one PC/Mac. It does, however, come with 1TB of cloud storage, and 60 minutes of Skype calling to cellphones and landlines.
Home is $10 a month, and simply multiplies the Personal subscription benefits across five users. Previously, Office for iPad only allowed people to sign up for an annual Home subscription, or sign in with an existing 365 account.
