The wait is over for the iPhone version of Microsoft's Office software.

With the free app, users can quickly and easily edit, save and share documents on the go.
But there's a catch
You have to be an Office 365 subscriber to use it. And the mobile version is so bare bones, it may not do much to attract new subscribers.
But the new app can be used only by people with an Office 365 subscription, which costs $100 a year or $10 a month. The subscription normally lets you run popular programs such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint on up to five Mac and Windows computers. Now, you can use those three programs on up to five iPhones as well.

And sorry, Android and BlackBerry fans: The new app is available only for the iPhone right now. (Phones running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 software do come with a similar app already installed, and no subscription is required for that.)
