Office 365 Apps for iPhone
Office 365 is a powerful productivity platform that allows you to get more done from any device. Here’s a list of apps from Microsoft that help you make use of Office 365 while you’re on the go.
We recommend the Outlook for iOS app when using Office 365 on an iPhone. It gives you an awesome feature called Focused Inbox, allows you to reschedule mail to be reminded later, and customise simple swipe shortcuts to better organise your inbox.
OneNote is the one place for everything in your life. Use it to plan projects, keep meeting minutes, take notes, organise trips and keep track of important info. Spend a few moments with OneNote on any of your devices and it will quickly become your favourite app. We cannot speak more highly of OneNote, it’s a must have for any Office 365 user.
Create, Edit and Share Word documents on the Microsoft Word App for iOS. Microsoft Word is one of the top rated productivity apps on the App store due to its rich feature-set, ease of use and ability to open documents from various cloud services and locations.
Excel has made the transition to mobile devices with style. The number of features they’ve packed into this iOS app is amazing, and the users agree – after 13000+ ratings, the Excel App for iOS is still over 4.5 stars.
Create, Edit and Share PowerPoint presentations from your iPhone or iPad. You can also use Apple Airplay to project your presentation onto a large screen, and control it from your phone or Apple Watch.
The OneDrive app lets you add both consumer and business OneDrive accounts, and work with your files from anywhere. OneDrive for iOS lets you upload, share, and save your files for offline use.
Skype for Business
Skype for Business, formally known as Lync, does exactly what the name suggests – it gives you Skype for your business. Use the mobile app to stay in touch with your team members and regular Skype contacts from your iPhone or iPad.
Yammer is a social network for your business. Post announcements, share praise, run polls and gather feedback. Yammer is a great alternative for group conversations via email, is integrated across Office 365, and has a great iPhone app.
Outlook Groups are the new way to work as a team in Office 365. Create an Outlook Group to get a group email address, feature-packed newsfeed, OneNote notebook and document storage. Outlook Groups for iOS gives you that functionality on the go.
Microsoft bought Sunrise, the best calendar app for iOS, in Feb 2015. Sunrise combines calendars from Office 365, Outlook.com, Google, Facebook, your TV show schedules, your favourite sport teams schedule, and much more. Sunrise also provides an easy way to decide on a time to meet people via your phone.
Office Lens is a cool app that lets you take photos, or use existing ones, and convert them into PDFs, editable Word Documents, OneNote Pages, PowerPoint Presentations and even contacts. Take photos of Documents, Whiteboards and business cards, and let Office Lens do the rest.
Delve uses your Office 365 data and machine learning to help you discover what your team members are working on across Office 365. You can use Delve to search for people, projects and documents across Office 365.
Sway is like PowerPoint for any device. Create Sways to share ideas, information and presentations in a format that displays beautifully on any device. It uses an intuitive design engine to layout your Sway with minimal input, and lets you share it with anyone, whether they’re using Sway or not.
The Power BI for iPhone app lets you view and interact with your Power BI dashboards from anywhere. You can set alerts on important data, and get notified when targets are hit or not met. If you’re not familiar with Power BI, check it out now. We think it’s the most exciting addition to Office 365 available.
Office 365 Video
Office 365 Video for iOS gives you access to your Office 365 Video Portal, formatted for your mobile device. You can use Office 365 Video to store and share training videos, your company’s mission and vision, recorded meetings and more.
Microsoft PowerApps are coming soon, and they’re a fantastic way for anyone to build powerful business apps using their existing data. Use PowerApps to access any datasource, including SharePoint, Excel, SQL Database, custom APIs and more. Next create simple logic flows to automate business processes and present important information. Once you’re done, you share your apps with the team.
Microsoft Send is a project by Microsoft Garage, a community within Microsoft that turns ‘wild ideas into real projects’. Microsoft Send feels like texting and works like email, stripping back subjects, signatures and greetings, to give you quick simple messaging with anyone who uses email. This app is great for teams.
