Today, we are excited to introduce you to viewing and editing documents in the Office Web Apps on tablets using "Touch". In this blog post, Program Manage Renu Devi, describes the "touch" experience; the design framework that guided development of making the Office Web Apps touchable and responsive to touch; and the technical details that made the editing and viewing tools available in touch-supported browsers.
Guest blogger Christina Tynan-Wood has been covering technology for decades at Family Circle and at blogs GeekGirlfriends.com and Family Circle's Momster. Her son Cole (16) is "very good at appearing to listen when he isn't paying any attention at all. Thankfully though, in this digital age, his high-school teachers tend to take a liberal attitude toward the use of technology. As long he is quietly using his tech as a study aide (not to cheat, text, or watch TV), his teachers quietly turn a blind eye. So, to bolster my hope of someday celebrating college acceptance letters with him, I decided to teach him how to use Microsoft OneNote - in conjunction with his Windows Phone -- to improve his note taking skills."

On Monday in San Francisco we took the wraps off of the new Office's touch experience designed for Windows 8. We showed the new touch-optimized Windows 8-style app for OneNote, and we showed how we've touch-enabled Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and other apps on the desktop. The new Office is designed for a great experience whether you're sitting on a couch with a tablet, or at a desk with a mouse and keyboard. It makes common tasks fast, fluid, and intuitive, while still enabling the rich capabilities required to create high-quality documents. In this post I'll walk you through the thinking, engineering process and design framework we used to reimagine these experiences for touch.
