With the latest update, version 2.5 delivers new features aimed at improving individual and group productivity and also assists in saving time. New features include:

  • CloudOn FileSpace: The FileSpace keeps users up-to-date with a real-time activity stream that supplies necessary context around any document, including comments, edits, and notifications. It is already available for iOS and will be coming soon to Android.
  • Annotations: Users can add graphical notes to any item in Word, Excel or PowerPoint with a single tap. These annotations are saved in the document and will be displayed when the document is shared with others whether it is opened in the CloudOn workspace or not. Like the previous feature, this is already available for iOS and will be coming soon to Android.
  • Universal Language Support: CloudOn version 2.5 includes enhanced keyboard support for all languages and alphabets in Microsoft Office documents. It is already available for iOS and Android devices.
  • Improved, touch-friendly ribbon: The ribbon for Office applications is optimized for touch-based tablet use and makes the user experience simplified across editing functions which include including selecting fonts, aligning text, spell check and track changes. This feature is available for iOS and Android.

“With this launch, CloudOn brings exciting new features and worldwide access to our service,” says Milind Gadekar, co-founder and CEO of CloudOn. “We have a vibrant and vocal user community that want their mobile devices to do more work, and that is exactly what we are committed to helping them do.
