QUOTE: Microsoft may have made minimal visual changes to the user interface but Office 2013 is the first such suite to support touchscreen interaction. The standout feature is the inclusion of gesture support and an on-screen keyboard you can actually type on. This will sit well with organisations looking to deploy tablets as more than mere document viewers. Microsoft Word 2013 Reader Mode is a joy to use. The Reader Mode displays the document in a clean and simple manner, removing all of the application’s toolbars and presenting the text as if it was printed on a sheet of paper. For those users that have to proof sheets of pages, Reader Mode is without doubt the best way to do it. Microsoft has saved perhaps the biggest new function in Office 2013 for Excel. This comes in the form of Flash Fill. The feature aims to analyse a column of data and predict values for empty cells with the user simply clicking the Flash Fill button.

Microsoft’s SkyDrive service is just as good as other public cloud offerings such as Google Drive, and could prove to be a valuable repository for users who are constantly on the move.

Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium provides a single Office license for an entire household. With aggressive pricing, Office 365 Home Premium also provides additional benefits, such as extra SkyDrive storage, Skype world calling minutes, and free upgrades for the lifetime of the subscription.
