Microsoft corrected their mistake and made available mobile office for most of the countries (including India) within a week of its release.
We noticed Microsoft office’s app on top 5 free apps in Indian app store.But unfortunately for me (& all those old iPhone owners.) the app is only available for iPhone 4 or later devices. The error message says that “This app is incompatible for this iPhone” & needs front facing camera.
God knows, why MS Office needs front facing camera! Even Skype the premier VoIP service doesn’t have such obscure requirement for its mobile app.
