One application to rule them all.
It seems that we will soon have a nice revolution in the field of Android applications provided by Microsoft. I am talking about the most popular Office suite in the world, which will be redesigned in the near future. If, like me, you like to use the apps of the Redmond giant, but a few different icons in the application drawer or on the desktop are too much for you, I have good news.
Microsoft Office Mobile is a well-known application users of selected Samsung smartphones. As part of the partnership agreement, the Office package containing Word, Excel and PowerPoint is pre-installed on the devices of this manufacturer. All of these applications can be launched from a single tool. Journalists of the ZDNet website, citing their sources, report that the app has a code name "Unity" will soon hit all Android smartphones and tablets as well as iOS devices.
Office Mobile will bring not only improvement in the form of a smaller number of icons, but also a smaller demand for resources, which will be shown by a single application. The new tool will be slightly less functional, but it will allow you to view and edit basic documents in compatible formats. We know for sure that the app will be free, also for people without an active Office 365 subscription.
A similar move the American company may soon make on personal computers, where all the tools can be run from a single program. Details on the new solution will be known at the Ignite conference in November.
