Microsoft Word for iPad enters top 10 in gross revenue

Posted Mar 31, 2014

Last week, Microsoft launched Microsoft Office for iPad. Now the Microsoft Word for iPad app has entered the top 10 on Apple’s App Store “Top Grossing” rankings. The app was released on March 27th and was ranked number 6 as of Sunday. Excel and PowerPoint are rapidly growing as well.

Microsoft’s Office for iPad apps are free to download for viewing documents. Editing existing and creating new documents will require an Office 365 plan though.

Apple ranks gross sales based on purchases through the App Store. Microsoft offers an in-app purchase of Office 365 Home for $99.99 to install the desktop Office on up to 5 Windows PCs or Macs.
