I received a Microsoft Office 365 subscription to facilitate this review; all opinions are my own.

Microsoft Office 365 – My Experience

I also use Office 365 and have been for a few months (read: Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium Software Overview). It works like the old stand-alone versions with just a few exceptions. The most important is that I’m “renting” the software so I never have to worry about it being out-of-date! For a $99 subscription fee I get full access to all of the programs. This is a huge savings over purchasing the boxed version even if I subscribe for 3 years. The software is downloaded to my device (5 in all) and it works with the same speed as the stand-alone version.

Microsoft Office 365 – My Favorite Application

My favorite application is Outlook. Get a polished and professional looking even with your Gmail account by importing it into MS Outlook. Then use the calendar feature to schedule appointments, add contact lists, and more. The organization power of MS Outlook is impressive.
