At the Build 2014 event, we’ve seen Microsoft finally come up with the Windows Phone 8.1 update, as well as Windows 8.1 Update. Besides this, we now know that there are more than 14 million daily Windows Store and Windows Phone downloads.

Microsoft has already unveiled the Office touch applications for the world’s most known tablet, the iPad, but it has ignored its own platform – Windows 8. At the Build 2014 event that’s currently taking place in San Francisco, Microsoft has just demoed to Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 developers how the touch apps from the Office suite will look like on Windows 8 touch devices. Unfortunately, only the PowerPoint app for Windows 8 was showcased and you can have a look at the pictures from below, courtesy of TechCrunch.

You can see in one screenshot that they will come as separate downloads, just as with the iPad and any other platform where the Office 365 plan will work. From what we can tell, they look amazing, with a crisp quality and a pristine user interface. I have no doubt that when they are released, it will constitute another great reason for Windows 8 to enjoy better adoption across users. So, let’s have a look.

The release date has been pinned for later on this year, but no exact date has been given. But judging by the looks of this demoed Windows 8 PowerPoint application, there isn’t too much to waited, as they seem almost ready for release. The apps will come with the ‘ribbon’ interface, just as expected, located at the top of the screen to navigate using just your finger. They’re probably working on ensuring that mouse and keyboard users aren’t being left out, neither.
