Microsoft Office isn't what it used to be. Now instead of plopping down a sizable upfront payment for software you could use indefinitely, customers commit to paying a monthly fee. Yet either way, every company needs at least one person who knows how to get the software running and whose job it is to ensure that things stay that way. Microsoft's latest Android app, Office 365 Admin, is for them.

This app comes to Android only a month after the launch of the Windows Phone version, and it looks largely the same. Like Microsoft Office itself, this companion isn't particularly exciting. It helps IT system administrators monitor their company or organization's Office 365 service status from a mobile device.

The app is available for free below. Of course, you will need an active Office 365 subscription and administrator access in order to make use of it.

    ...and still no one cares...

      I care, because I am an Office 365 admin at my job, and noticed just yesterday that there wasn an overnight issues that no one here knew about. Personally, I couldn't care less about Microsoft products, though.

        too bad something like this is needed. I've experienced so many outages already with o365.

        Microsoft should be capable of having a better uptime. I've never experienced issues with google apps and been using it for years.

          Agree. Nothing but issues with this thing. It's been keeping me busy for the last few months, smh.

    Still waiting on Office Mobile for Tablets.

    I am still waiting on ANY good app that can properly
    implement .XLSX and maybe .XLSB. I have yet to find any that will properly
    format (or in some cases even open) a spreadsheet with even a moderate amount
    of formulae in, let alone macros or buttons with hyperlinks etc. I work with
    advanced spreadsheets, and would love to be able to use and/or edit them on my
    tablet. Polaris Office is the closest I have found, but that still is not

      Just get a Windows Tablet and all your problems will be solved. At this time there is no Office Suite on Android that will properly open advanced spreadsheets or PowerPoints.
