Office and Dropbox

Microsoft have announced a partnership with Dropbox to provide more choice in how you work together and collaborate on mobile devices.

With the next updates to Word, Excel and PowerPoint on iPhone, iPad and Android Phone you’ll be able to connect to your Dropbox account, so you can access, edit and share your Dropbox files right from your Office apps. Once you’ve added your Dropbox account to Word, Excel or PowerPoint, you can navigate folders and files on Dropbox for viewing and editing in the native Office apps. And accessing Word, PowerPoint and Excel from your Dropbox app is just as easy. Navigate to the file you want, and the Dropbox app will open the Office app you need.

This is great news for those of us who use Onedrive for our business documents and Dropbox for our personal ones.
