Microsoft Word for iPad is Microsoft corporation’s official MS Word app specifically designed for the iPad. The app itself is free but is optimized for use with an Office 365 subscription. All staff and secondary students at ISL automatically receive an Office 365 subscription as part of their employment/enrolment. Once logged in with a Office 365 username and password, Microsoft Word for iPad will automatically sync with a user’s OneDrive account for simple saving and access options for documents. The interface is similar to the original Microsoft Word application, except optimized for touch and includes multiple template and format options as well as fonts, pictures, tables, charts, text boxes, shapes, footnotes, page layout options and more. Choose to autosave back to OneDrive or onto the iPad. Office 365 sharing options are also available directly from the app.
Microsoft Word for iPad is suitable for Lower Primary, Upper Primary and Secondary.
