Office Online Access from Bing

2015-02-05_8-06-01Not sure how many people are still using Google Docs, but if you are, it is time to change.  “But it is free” you say.  Well, hey, news flash, “So is Office Online”.  Why keep using something that is mediocre and attempts to be compatible with the very format that is native to Office Online?  Yep, it is a no brainer!  Oh, and don’t get me started on why you should be using Bing instead of Google.

Seriously, if you haven’t used the online versions Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook.com, Calendar, PeopleOneNote or even OneDrive, you are really missing out.  If you use full blown Windows versions or even one of the cross platform mobile versions, you will be familiar with these versions.


How do I get to them, well, it is pretty simple.  Hit up Bing.com and you will see the following in the header of the page.

Once you have the menu up, go ahead and visit each link.  I have to say that my two favorites are OneDrive and OneNote.  Using those and seeing everything sync to all my devices is glorious.  Here are some screenshots of each app.
