There has been some time since the releasing of Microsoft Office 2013, to the disappointment of many iOS and Android users, the new version Office 2013 still does not have mobile versions of its core office productivity applications — Word, Excel, PowerPoint on iOS and Android. Only Surface tablet Windows RT as well as the Windows Phones users can get access to a complete suite of mobile apps including Microsoft Office 2013.
You may complain about the pinching Microsoft, but have you ever thought about the reason why Microsoft closes door to other platforms except on its Surface tablet Windows RT as well as the Windows Phone?
Firstly, confronted with the depressing market sales of Windows Phones and the endangered Windows RT OS, it’s an easy choice for Microsoft to protect its own products and boost sales in this way.
Secondly, we may say, it’s also a smart measure for the out-of-date phone giant to avoid being knocked out in the fierce smart phone and tablet competition arena.
Last but not the least, with little cross-platform integration, Microsoft is providing an opportunity for consumers to have a more smooth experience of a complete mobile workflow.
However, since Lync and OneNote are already available for the iOS platform (though Lync has very limited support), there has also a rumor that Microsoft Office 2013 may land on iOS and Android devices in the second quarter, particularly Word, Excel and PowerPoint. But it is speculated that Microsoft could impose technical or licensing restrictions on Office used on the iOS platform to limit the competition. Therefore, it seems a matter of time before Microsoft opens up more to other platforms.
It is hard to say about the future things, let’s come back to the present situation. Although the “Windows First” strategy does not work for Android and iOS platforms, Microsoft is not so mean in Microsoft Office design. Actually, the 2013 PowerPoint has brought in some features optimized for touch. From the radial menus to touch mode, enlarging icons, and cloud-integrated searching function.
Moreover, Microsoft introduces OFFICE 365 suite, including Office SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online. Among them, the Office SharePoint Online can work with mobile devices like iPads and Android tablets by installing Office Web Apps. However, Microsoft’s Office Web Apps currently lack offline editing capabilities and they don’t work offline, which means iPads and Android users can only use PowerPoint 2013 and other 2013 Office suites through the browser or via e-mail. At the sight of the frustrated online editing apps, many Apple and Android users have to shrink back and resort to other third party software to view 2013 PowerPoint presentations on Android or iOS devices.
Nevertheless, when there is the will, there is the way. We can always find ways to do it if we want to do something. Most Android enthusiasts find a way to convert PowerPoint 2013 to Android, which is bound to be the wisest method to play 2013 PowerPoint presentations on Android.
