CloudOn, a popular productivity app that lets users access their DropBox, Box and Google (News - Alert) Drive accounts simultaneously and boasts some similarities to Office 365, has recently been revamped. The app is now optimized for iPhone, iPad mini and Nexus 7 tablets. This means that Microsoft (News - Alert) Office (Excel, PowerPoint and Word) will be available to those devices for free, as well as Microsoft SkyDrive cloud storage integration in case the other three cloud storage options didn’t work for you.
Users can access CloudOn from all Android tablets running Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich 3.1 or higher, as well as Apple’s (News - Alert) collection of mobile devices. In addition to being able to launch new Excel, PowerPoint and Word files, users can also access recent files. This allows them to transition from working on something at the office to continuing it from their smartphone or tablet without any issues. Real-time updates on documents with FileSpace are available as well, allowing you to add notes and view all activity on a single file without having to open the actual file.
This offering is a great tool for collaborative efforts in the office especially when not everyone can be physically present. The increasing need for cloud services is evident in the push for things like Office 365 and Google Apps. Office 365 has gotten more publicity as of late due to the rising cost of Google Apps and because Microsoft partners such as SherWeb are now offering Hosted Exchange 2013 to their clients.
“Our partner program is designed to fit every business model,” commented Mathieu Leblanc, SherWeb’s director, Strategic Partners. “We not only offer the best margins and performance tiers in the industry, but we do more to support our partners with unparalleled technical support, all-inclusive migration service and partner enablement. And we will continue to innovate so that our partners can capitalize fully on the growing demand for cloud services and stay relevant to their customers.”
