Such a high price was reportedly refused by the former head of Microsoft Steve Ballmer, so it is considered that this was the main reason why the Office on this platform has not appeared before. New CEO Satya Nadella was apparently flexible in negotiations and agreed to the terms that Apple dictates its strict policy on the sale of any content beyond the ordinary, and within iOS applications.
Nadella was obviously very quick to agree with Tim Cook, and about the good cooperation witness tweets by the duo changed after the official launch of Office for iPad. Meanwhile, in the first day of availability, Microsoft applications have climbed to the first place in the AppStore by the number of downloads in the U.S. and several other countries.
[Ed - The news about Office365 on iOS is interesting and can be the beginnings of Microsofrt moving back to a software company (even though this is a cloud service). We can only hope that this is the case...]
