Microsoft Office beta for Android combines Word, Excel and PowerPoint into a single app

Microsoft already has separate Word, Excel and PowerPoint apps for Android, and it has been updating the app with new features. Last week it started testing a new Microsoft Office app that combines Word, Excel and PowerPoint into one. You can also scan to PDFs and also sign PDF files easily using the app.

The new Microsoft Office Beta for Android is down on the  Google Play Store  (Cache), however you can download the APK from here and side-load it manually.
