We feel caught up in some vile conspiracy against the UAE, and even jealousy by some people, who do not wish an app like ours from this region to ever become a global player.

Unfortunately, as Android Police notes, the new Office app does not work too well with tablet devices yet. We've asked Microsoft if it can elaborate on its plans.

Microsoft has quietly released a new Office app that combines all its editing apps - Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneDrive.

The app, which is nearly 100MB on the PlayStore combines the functionality of the most used Microsoft services.

Additionally, users can instantly create PDFs from photos or documents in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Contacted by AndroidPolice, Microsoft said that it has nothing to share at this time about tablet support, so if you're planning to use it on a larger screen know that the app will be locked in portrait mode.

The all-in-one package includes several of the company's productivity programs - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint - and was previously available as a public preview. Well now on my phone, the dedicated Excel, Word and Powerpoint apps gobble up roughly 600MB of storage while the new combined app uses roughly 400MB of storage. But, Google eventually being split up into separate apps, allowing you to install only what you need.
