This week Microsoft announced the release of its latest mobile app called Office, and there are some pretty exciting features in it that are sure to make your work and personal life easier. This app is designed to truly utilize your mobile phone with a variety of other familiar Microsoft programs like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint while also adding in some new features like the ability to sign PDFs right from your phone.

In addition to these uses, in the coming months Microsoft will be adding additional features such as the ability to voice dictate directly into a word document from your phone. One other particularly helpful feature is built-in support for third-party storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive. Below are some of our favorite features of the new app!
