This assessment of the variations between Microsoft Office on Macintosh, Windows, and iOS devices was come up with by Kurt Schmucker who (disclaimer) operates for Characteristics — that organization which makes clever digital device apps for operating Windows and additional OS’s on Macintosh — but he also occurs to understand anything or two concerning the topic after his prior part as Mature Mac Evangelist at Microsoft about the Office group. What exactly precisely is lacking on iOS devices and Mac when compared with Windows as it pertains towards the Office collection?
Within the graphs below, Schmucker stops working function-by-feature precisely what you receive (and don’t get) in each one of the various variations of the efficiency collection including Office 2016 and 2013 for Windows, Office 2016 and 2011 for Mac, and Office for iPad.

One good is assistance for correct-to-quit languages, which he notices is something which Mac customers have bene requesting but have however to get, while an adverse for that iPad is insufficient numerous choice assistance in PowerPoint, anything Schmucker records is just a fairly fundamental but essential purpose for that app.
Ultimately, he proves that the mixture of the different Office fits is the greatest strategy but confesses that his primary, go to edition is MacOffice 2011 (aside from utilizing the newest edition of Perspective because of improved efficiency):

As a result of this background, I’m frequently in a position to choose the perfect Office app that’ll create a given job the most easy to complete. Since Posting Format View a just for the reason that One-Word model— can make this simple one job may be especially suitable to MacWord 2011. Another job may be suitable for WinPPT due to the Cartoon Artist, that will be not in virtually any MacPPT edition. Still another job may be ideal to WInPPT 2013 since it wants an Office expansion unavailable in different Office suites.”
