Microsoft Office 2016 is a tool set for the most commonly used office applications. It offers modern versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Outlook, which are now easier to use thanks to their enhanced functionalities. The users will appreciate the support for full Retina display, the multi-touch gestures, and the full screen view. The ribbon interface is also updated, resembling Windows Office 2013 for a stronger unity and collaboration across multiple platforms. The cloud support represents a major asset, providing the ability to access recent documents from other devices and edit them remotely from where they were left off.

Word for Mac 2016 features major improvements. The large tabbed toolbar displayed on top of every document has been thoroughly revamped. There are a series of new tabs that gather close-related editing tools for a better and unitary focus when performing the desired tasks. The app offers several templates to help you edit specific types of documents more easily. What is noticeable about these templates is that they can be customized with various themes, color schemes, and the addition of new elements. A separate tab has been assigned to the e-mail function, so you can send personalized messages directly from the app. The new release includes a handy navigation pane that helps you manage multi-page documents with ease. You will also appreciate the convenient collaborative feature that enables multiple users to work on the same document. A history of all changes and the comments appended by each author can be recalled at any moment. more
