Not only is the ambitious OS and its whole new way of connecting people to devices coming out soon. A bunch of sleek appearances, functional improvements, tie-ins to SkyDrive, web apps and much more partners are showing up within the next version of Windows. Let's take a look and see if it's worth it just yet.
Office 2013 is getting a new look, bringing minimal style into the equation and making it all flater and starker. The idea? Well at first I thought they just wanted to resemble the iOS characteristics, but the true purpose is that the new look will help you focus on your work rather than being distracted by the objects decorating your screen.
Furthermore, each app supports a new color-coded start screen—blue for Word, green for Excel, orange for PowerPoint, green for Publisher (well, I guess that isn't the newest detail to highlight). The top right of the screen shows details of the SkyDrive account that you are currently logged in to use, just as the graphic shows.
As you might have already thought, Office 2013 is designed to integrate with the cloud—with SkyDrive and SharePoint, in particular. That's good news if you prefer to save your work online for anywhere-access, though most small businesses and individuals still save files locally. If you use SkyDrive, the account details wil appear in the top left corner of all the application screens, as well as on their start screens.
Same reason allows you to have your Office documents online, available from any device at any time, via Office 2013 on a PC or tablet, or via the WebApps. In addition, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint will save the last location where you were working before you saved--down to the letter, cell, or image. This feature makes it easier to pick up where you left off working, even if you open the file on a different device than you last used. I would rather using that feature for security manners rather than functionality, but hey, works fine to me!
