Microsoft Office coming to iOS, hint job offers

Microsoft Office coming to iOS, hint job offers
Once again, we have evidence suggesting that Microsoft Office is coming to an iOS device near you. The company has posted a couple of job advertisements on its Careers web page in search of software engineers that will join the Outlook and PowerPoint testing teams. Whatever software they will be working on will be "part of Microsoft’s next move on the Mac and on iOS."

Last time we heard that Microsoft Office could come to iOS hardware was when a rumor surfaced back in May claiming that the software was to debut on Apple's mobile platform by November of this year. Sure, that rumor was not backed up by any solid evidence, but given the aforementioned clues, Microsoft could be really planning on bringing the touch-optimized Office, or at least some of the applications contained in the package, to the iPad and iPhone

Of course, don't forget that this is just a rumor that has yet to be confirmed by an official source. But if it happens to be on the right track, would a Microsoft product be successful on Apple territory? Let us know what you think by dropping a comment below.
