Four months ago we released Office for iPad—the world’s best productivity experience reimagined for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. Since then millions of you have had the chance to use Office for iPad and provide feedback, and we’ve been hard at work delivering updates for the things you’ve asked for the most. Today we’re sharing the next wave of updates to Office for iPad. We’ve done a ton of work and we hope you like it.

PowerPoint: Presenter View, audio and video playback, and more

With this release, you can enable Presenter View when projecting to another screen, so that you can see your notes, what’s coming next, and more. You asked for this. Now you’ve got it. With this update you can also make your presentations more rich and interactive than ever by more easily including video and sound to help get your point across. Not only do all of your embedded videos and sound recordings now play right from PowerPoint for iPad, but you can insert video directly from your Camera Roll as well. This allows you to quickly record, embed, and present interactive content more quickly than ever, and all from one device.

But that’s not all. There are also new eraser and pen settings to make annotations during presentations easier than ever. You can also edit hyperlinks right from within the app, another way using PowerPoint for iPad is now easier.

Excel: interaction with PivotTables, easier grid navigation, and more

Excel is all about interacting with, consuming, and manipulating your data. When it comes to interacting with data, PivotTables are key to helping explore that data. With Excel for iPad you can now sort, filter, expand and collapse, show details, and even refresh PivotTables whose data is all contained within the workbook. You can even change how your PivotTables look and feel by changing both their visual style and layout.

We’ve also made it easier to consume workbooks and select data, including a large data range, with the introduction of a new flick gesture. Simply grab the selection handle, flick it in any direction, and Excel will automatically select from where you started to the next blank cell. Say you’re at the top of a column of data and want to select all the way to the bottom. Just flick down and the column is selected automatically.

Given, the next-level move ahead rolex replica watches component might have already been coordinating the actual day steering wheel towards the grey call, or even a minimum of utilizing cheap replica watches rather than white-colored numbers.
