Microsoft Office for the iPad

Satya Nadella has unveiled the next evolution of Office, in his first public appearance since being named Microsoft's new CEO.

The productivity suite includes apps such as Excel and PowerPoint.

The look of Office hasn't drastically changed, but many features have been subtly streamlined to make things more user friendly for touch screens.

The interface of Microsoft Word, for example, has been simplified to highlight the most important formatting options, allowing text and images to be highlighted with a finger.

Excel has been altered to interpret what type of data you're working with, and automatically suggest formatting options, to save the user looking around for a specific graph.

PowerPoint has been the most straightforward and tablet-ready product of the suite, allowing users to build presentations with just a few taps and swipes.
