Microsoftoffice ipad is saying today that Office for iPad, which was released about six weeks ago, is already a success. According to their latest figures, the app has been downloaded over 27,000,000 times.Julia White, the general manager of Microsoft's Office Division, shared the news during Monday's keynote at Microsoft's TechEd customer conference in Houston, Texas.

The app is a free download on both the iPad and iPhone but some features require an Office 365 subscription, which costs around $70 a year for a personal license or $99 per year for Home license.

In April, Microsoft said it had 4.4 million paid users of the Home version of Office 365. That doesn't count the subscribers that chose the cheaper-priced personal license, an option which Microsoft first started offering last quarter.

    Pretty sure that’s only if you’re paying month-to-month. An actual annual subscription is $70 for 1 PC and 1 tablet, or $100 for 5 PCs and 5 tablets.
