Tech world seems to have been following news on the Office for Mac software suite quite keenly since it was first unveiled and then reported to be slated for an October launch. The Office For Mac blog recently revealed the availability of Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac which is the first version to add Outlook for Mac. Office 2011 also includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Messenger.
Office 2011 can be accessed from anywhere courtesy of the integration to current Microsoft cloud-based apps like the free Windows Live SkyDrive, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Office Web Apps. There are new co-authoring tools enabling more than one person to edit the same Word document or PowerPoint presentation simultaneously from whether it’s from a PC or Mac.
The software package also encompasses new photo editing utilities that don’t drag the user away from Office applications. A Dynamic Reorder tool delivers an instantaneous 3D view of all layers on the active PowerPoint slide or Word Publishing Layout view page. Photos, graphics or text can simply be dragged in order to rearrange the content.
A copy of Office 2011 for Mac can be picked up through Best Buy, Amazon, MacMall, OfficeforMac and Apple. The Home & Student version costs $149.99, while the Home & Business package is priced at $279.99.
