Microsoft is no longer working on the Windows Mobile 10 versions of Office. These are the stripped-down touch-friendly apps that could be downloaded for free via the Microsoft Store. The apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint have been available since Windows 8.1, but the company wants to focus its energy on iOS and Android and the official versions of Office that are apparently also used on the Surface laptops and tablets

The apps for Word, Excel and PowerPoint have been available since Windows 8.1, but the company wants to focus its energy on iOS and Android and the official versions of Office that are apparently also used on the Surface laptops and tablets.

The mobile apps have already been removed from the Store, but can still be downloaded again for existing Windows Mobile users.
