    Office goes free on phones and tablets: What you get, and what you don't :
    http://www.pcworld.com/article/28444...-you-dont.html

    Microsoft Word

    Microsoft's document editor has the longest list of paid-only features, but the free version still supports basic editing features such as creating text, adding styles such as bold and italics, changing the font and choosing from a list of colors. Here's what specifically requires a subscription:
    •Only paid users will be able to change the orientation of a document between portrait and landscape mode. Free users can open landscape documents, but can't change them, and will create all new documents in portrait.
    •Paid users can format documents into columns. Free users can open existing documents with columns and edit the text, but can't modify or undo the columns themselves.
    •Only paid users can create section breaks such as Next Page, Continuous, Odd and Even Pages. Free users can still view section breaks from existing documents and create new page breaks.
    •The ability to accept or reject Track Changes is limited to paid users. With the free version, Track Changes will be turned on by default in any marked up document, and can't be turned off, and any changes users make will be tracked. Free users also can't turn on Track Changes in a new document.
    •For text editing, any drop-down menu options for things like font size, text style and color are free, but custom changes such as specific colors are behind the paywall, as are Text Styles and Word Art.
    •For charts, changing the display options on things like data labels and the legend will require a subscription.
    •For tables, only paid users can change the color or shade of any cell, row or column.
    •Only paid users can apply reflections and shadows to images, though these won't be removed from existing documents when opened in the free version.

    Free, even if limited functions, is better than a $10 APP for just reading Word documents.

    It's just like the old Office Starter edition they preinstalled on many new PCs.

    Well, I'm not sure how many will be willing to pay for doing some like appending a period to the end of a sentence. Come on Microsoft.
