Why would you buy it when you already have Microsoft Office installed.

This is the question that first came to my mind when Office 365 was introduced to me. I already have Microsoft Office. I can always view the documents in my mobile phone and tablet using a third party app, that’s free. Why would I pay for a license every year?

But after thinking hard, (Yes, I had to think hard!) What I felt when it was being explained to me came back to me. The feelings of comfort and security.

It’s like bringing your home when you’re away. Whenever I have to view documents in my mobile phone away from my PC, there’s this little anxiety of not being able to edit the document the way I wanted it done because I’m not sure if a certain feature in the Microsoft Offce app will be available in that third party app.

What do you think?
