    Now that Office for iPad is out, you'll need an Office 365 subscription in order to use it. Sure the free versions let you read documents, spreadsheets and presentations, but that's it. If you want to edit or create, you'll need to pony up $100 and that's per year. In the age of ever-decreasing software pricing, who's paying $100 for Office? Are you?

    Not me. Too much. They are going to have to realize there are too many lower priced options available.

    I agree 100%! It'll be interesting to see how many people subscribe to it in the end.

    Maybe once, but not once a year. MS must have pretty lenient drug polices over there to come up the idea to charge $100 a year.

    Not even once in my opinion, too many options already available for MS to come up with this nonsense.

    I recently made a switch to officesuite pro. It has decent editing ability and it supports all the major cloud services. Quickoffice became unusable to me when Google stopped supporting all but Drive.
