Everyone's computing needs are a little different and thus everyone has a slightly different relationship with their documents. Well, like the perfect buddy, Office Web Apps has your best interest in mind, and despite being available any time, day or night, it won't ever call you and be all, "What are you doing right now? I miiiiiisssss you."
It's a win/win for everyone, because with Office Web Apps you can access, edit and share your personal Office documents, and your friends and co-workers never feel neglected because they can contribute, too.
With Office Web Apps, you can access your formatted Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote documents online from almost anywhere, like a coffee shop, friend's computer, or smartphone.* Just sign up for a free Windows Live ID (if you don't already have one), then access your documents online by logging into SkyDrive—your personal online storage space.
Once your docs are online, you can edit, share and collaborate with others. So with Office Web Apps, everyone from students to freelancers, community organizers to little league coaches, and book club facilitators to TAs can get their docs in shape, saved, and shared from almost anywhere, and you know they'll look consistently great online, too.
And though Office Web Apps is an experience that is really all about doing more with your version of Office, you can use Office Web Apps even if you or your friends don't have Office installed. You—or anyone you're collaborating with—can still view, edit or create docs online using Office Web Apps.
