Microsoft Office for iPad hits 12 million downloads in one week

Posted April 4, 2014


Last week Microsoft had launched its highly-anticipated Office suite for iPad apps, and it has resulted in collective 12 million downloads, according to a tweet from Microsoft’s @Office handle.

The Office suite, including Microsoft Word for iPad, Microsoft Excel for iPad and Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad, jumped to the top of Apple’s iOS App Store charts on day one after launch. Currently, the apps stand one-two-three at the top of the iPad App Store’s free app rankings, followed by Microsoft OneNote for iPad sitting in sixth.

Microsoft’s new iPad apps are “freemium” offerings as each requires an in-app subscription purchase to unlock full software capabilities. For Office, users can view documents for free, but need to have an Office 365 subscription to make edits. Office 365 prices are tagged at $99 per year or $9.99 per month, combined with the large number of downloads, Office for iPad apps are among the top grossing titles in the App Store.
