The Garage Series for Office 365: Cross-platform Office experiences update–featuring Office for iPad

On this week’s show hosts Jeremy Chapman and Michael Atalla look at the array of Office experiences across platforms – including the recently released Office for iPad and OneNote for Mac. Watch as they discuss the core tenants for designing great experiences for screens of all sizes – ranging from the 82″ Perceptive Pixel display all the way down to a 1.5″ Android smart watch.

Last fall, we brought Guy Gilbert and Steve Chew on the show to take a look at all of the Office experiences across Windows Phone, Windows, iOS and Android. We even demonstrated how users with devices of all types can collaborate and work together on the devices they wanted. Beyond that, we put Office VP, John Case, in a rally car with Bucky Lasek to test if he could help navigate the DirtFish rally course using a single Office 365-stored document with pace notes using an Android phone, an iPhone and a Windows Phone.

This week we show how Office has broadened cross-platform productivity coverage even further with the recent releases of OneNote for Mac and Office for iPad. Recent updates to Office Online, OneNote and OWA for Devices are great examples of how even the existing tools keep getting better.  But of course it doesn’t stop there and at the Microsoft Exchange Conference this week in Austin, we showed the upcoming OWA for Android.

On the show Michael explains how modern experiences, designing for screens of all sizes and rich applications are core to Office. It wouldn’t be complete without a lot of demos, so we show Office for iPad, Office Online, OneNote for Mac and even a couple of surprises along the way. You’ll have to watch the show to see how everything in action.

Thanks for watching and we’ll see you soon,

–Jeremy Chapman
