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.
