Windows Phone 7, 8 and 8.1 does have Office apps but they were highly cut down versions of the desktop version. They just allowed simple editing of documents, excel sheets and presentations when you didn’t have a PC with you.  Those of you who uses Windows 10 Mobile preview version may have noticed how the Office Mobile apps have evolved to a great extent from their version for Windows Phone 7 and 8. The apps on Windows 10 Mobile now are more powerful and feature rich and are in line with Microsoft’s dream of achieving excellence in mobile productivity. Microsoft has given a brief overview of the various Office apps available for the Windows 10 Mobile platform through newly released video tutorials that show how the suite is truly practical, easy to use and lightweight.

Microsoft’s Office Lens is another popular app in the new generation of Office apps, and Microsoft also uploaded a video demo of this app working on Windows 10 mobile. For those who don’t know about it, Office Lens trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable, and saves them to OneNote. You can use Office Lens to convert images to PDF, Word and PowerPoint files too.

Best thing these Office mobile apps are that they are universal apps so they can be connected to a monitor via continuum and you can get PC-like experience from your phone.
