Word for iOS
Microsoft Word finally hits the iPad

Word is one of three apps that make up Microsoft's Office suite for iOS users - Excel and PowerPoint are, unsurprisingly, the other two.

The apps have a familiar interface, with the same Ribbon interface and layout. But at the same time, they're not just a port of the regular desktop version. Menus have been optimised for touch; objects can be dragged, rotated or resized with a swipe, and the interface scales properly in both portrait and landscape mode.

There's solid integration with other iOS features. You can use voice dictation to create a document, perhaps, or AirPlay to project your finished presentation.

You get plenty of functionality, too. There are templates, tables,  footnotes, filters, charts, transitions and just about everything else you'll need. Everything is very configurable, formatting is preserved so documents look just as you'd expect, and you can save and share your documents via Dropbox, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint.

The core free apps allow you to open or create documents, run basic editing operations or save them.

To use more advanced features, though (Pivot tables in Excel, say) you'll need an Office 365 subscription. If you have one already, no problem; you're covered for all the apps installed on a single tablet in addition to your PC if you have an Office 365 Personal subscription ($6.99 a month) or on up to five different tablets alongside your five PCs or Macs if you have the Office 365 Home sub ($9.99).

What's New in Version 1.23.1

• Bug fixes

Verdict:

Word for iOS looks great, is powerful and easy to use. If you have an Office 365 subscription it's a no-brainer, but if not, there are better value alternatives out there.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
