Word on Phones

The Microsoft strategy of “Mobile first, Cloud first” is never more evident when it comes to its Office apps. They can be found on PCs and a variety of smartphones and feature rich cloud integration. Many of the functions in Mobile Office apps will be familiar to PC users but the tools may not be as easy to find on the smaller screen. With this in mind, Microsoft has kindly issued some tips on how to use its most popular application inside Office; Word. They cover five topics:

  • Creating and opening documents
  • Formatting text
  • Finding text
  • Adding comments
  • Saving the document

The tips give a brief outline of where to find these tools, however, it would be vastly improved by some appropriate screenshots of the process being described. Microsoft is constantly updating their Office apps and they will no doubt publish other How-To guides focusing on any new features introduced.
