Microsoft's new Office app for mobile combines Word, Excel and Powerpoint

Microsoft's new Office mobile app combines all its products, including Word, Excel and PowerPoint and brings them all under a single app.

However, the launch which ended up hogging the limelight was the new Microsoft Office mobile app.

The individual Word, Excel and Powerpoint apps have been quite popular on both iOS and Android.

Plus you can creative automatically enhanced digital images of whiteboards and documents with Office Lens features integrated into the app. Microsoft also added a new Actions Pane that helps you accomplish numerous mobile tasks you need to do all from one place.

But when it comes to Smartphones, we don't really have much of these All in One Document Managing apps.

As well as, the app also lets you just take notes, type of like you would in Google Retain.
