The new service is currently available in English for Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. Canadians can access a French version too; a Spanish version is also available for the United States. Office Web Apps are simplified versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote that run in supported Web browsers. These applications use the “Ribbon” user interface menu system that was first introduced in Office 2007. Users need to sign up for a Windows Live password to access the service, but it’s all free. The service can be accessed anywhere using a supported browser and an Internet connection at Smartphone users can view Word and PowerPoint files without additional software on most devices, according to Microsoft’s announcement. Printing files in Word and PowerPoint Web Apps can be done right from the browser. Office Web Apps are tied to SkyDrive, Microsoft’s storage space in the Internet cloud. SkyDrive provides Office Web App users with 25 GB of storage space, which can be used to save files and share them with others. A coauthoring feature is available, but just for Excel and OneNote. Microsoft claims that users can collaborate on a document at the same time and not be locked out, even as various people try to access it. In addition, Office Web Apps preserves a version history, which is saved on SkyDrive.
