at close on FRIDAY

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.

The new iPhone app, which made its debut on Friday, will make a lot of people happy. Many Office users have been clamoring for a mobile version for some time. And while companies such as Google and Apple make comparable versions of the software, you sometimes lose formatting and other details when working with Office files on those programs.

But the new app can be used only by people with an Office 365 subscription, which costs $100 a year or $10 a month.
