Office for iPad: Is it any good?

With a polished set of Office apps for the iPad, Microsoft may be marking the end the Windows PC era.

Microsoft boss Satya Nadella's first public appearance since his appointment has gone down like a treat. The launch of the long awaited Word, Excel and Powerpoint iPad apps has been welcomed with open arms and Nadella is doing a lot right, as far as investors and users are concerned.

Microsoft stock closed last night at 14-year high -- the company’s share price is up 11 per cent since the new CEO took office -- and the Word app appeared at the number eight spot in last week’s Apple Store revenue earners.
