Microsoft today dropped a brand-new Office Mobile app that brings Word, Excel, and PowerPoint together in one place.

The result is an app that combines the power of Word, Excel and PowerPoint, eliminating the need to a series of individual apps, and throws in a few handy mobile-specific extras for good measure.

"The new Office mobile app represents our vision for what a productivity solution would look like if first built for mobile devices", Microsoft said in the blog post announcing this change in approach. You can take a picture of a document and turn it into an editable Word file by pressing a button. When you go into a document, the UI takes on the color of that product. This includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

The app is now as a public preview on Android and as a beta through Apple's iOS Test Flight program. Well, the new upcoming Office app for Android and iOS is also quite colourful. So, if you attend a lot of lectures or meetings, this app could make it easier to grab notes without much effort.
