Not too long ago using Microsoft’s Office apps on any iOS device was nothing more than a far-fetched dream. Then the team in Redmond rocked the iOS world by releasing its Office suite for the iPad.

Since then, I’ve spent plenty of time kicking the tires of the suite on my iPad and iPhone, and learned some helpful tips for boosting your mobile productivity.
