Microsoft is the iPhone 5S' biggest loser $MSFT

Microsoft is the iPhone 5S' biggest loser $MSFT

The Office Mobile apps come with two big catches that Apple's iWork doesn't have: Office Mobile is available only for users who subscribe to Office 365, Microsoft's cloud-based Office service that costs $100 per year. And the Microsoft apps don't work on tablets -- likely because Microsoft wants to give its own struggling Surface tablet a fighting chance.
That's not going to cut it, particularly now that iPhone users can get iWork with no price tag or other strings attached.
"It's time for Microsoft to get its head out of the sand and respond very vigorously," said Laura DiDio, principal analyst at research firm ITIC. "They need to be proactive and not reactive."
