Office Mobile is now completely free to use on Android and iPhone

Office Mobile for Android on the HTC One M8

Today's Office news isn't all about the iPad. Microsoft now lets you use Office Mobile completely for free on both Android and the iPhone; if you're a home customer, you can both edit and read documents without paying for an Office 365 subscription. The gratis apps are ultimately meant to encourage use of the desktop and iPad clients, where you do need to pay for full access. Even so, it's hard to object to having another free tool for tweaking company reports while on the move.
