Why Office Mobile isn’t a good investment
Is Office Mobile, the iPhone version of Microsoft’s long-running Office series, worth a $100 yearly subscription fee? Jill Duffy, a tech reviewer at PCMag.com, says “no.” And she’s right.
Duffy writes that Office Mobile performs well. It does what it’s expected to do. But there is a problem: It’s way too costly.
Office Mobile is certainly not the only program that enables you to edit reports, view spreadsheets and create documents on your iPhone. There are lots of alternatives out there that are free. And Duffy recommends that users, as an alternative to spending nearly $100 a year, make use of a collection of these free options to handle their office-task needs.
Yes, this can require research and trial-and-error testing on your part. But isn’t shaving a $100 expense each year from your budget worth this effort?
