Office Apps Built for Touch Come to Windows 10

If you have a tablet running the brand-spanking new operating system Windows 10, you can now download the Office apps that feature touch capabilities. Microsoft gets into the features of the new Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote apps in a blog post. Here’s the write-up for Word:

Word Mobile has the features you’d expect for touch-first productivity. All the core formatting commands, styles, fonts and spell check tools are there. You can insert tables, pictures, text boxes, hyperlinks, and add headers and footers—even footnotes and endnotes—all with touch. You can easily share and co-author with other editors and utilize features like track changes and comments as you collaborate. We’ve also introduced some exciting features focused on mobility scenarios. For example, the Read mode is a new way to view documents: Word beautifully reflows your document to adapt to small screens and improve readability by adjusting font sizes and allowing you to zoom on charts and tables with a quick tap. Smart Lookup, powered by Bing, brings additional online resources like images and web references directly into your document to give you deeper insights and new ideas.
