office iphoneWith the iPhone’s screen being smaller than the iPad and a laptop, this means that when it comes to editing certain things, its screen size just doesn’t cut it. Now with Microsoft Office, what Microsoft has done is introduce a feature that lets users draw on the screen with their finger, although this was only limited to the iPad as far as iOs devices are concerned.

The good news is that it looks like Microsoft has finally gotten around to updating its iPhone app by introducing the same finger-drawing feature. This will pretty much apply to the entire suite of Office apps, such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel. According to Microsoft, “Use your finger to write, draw and highlight with the tools in the new Draw tab.

So like we said, this will make it much easier for users to draw out shapes, or make rough annotations, or point out certain things on their documents, spreadsheets, or presentation slides. In addition to the finger-drawing feature, the update will also bring about support for Citrix for storing and accessing your documents.

The update should already be live so if you have yet to update the iPhone version of the Office apps, then head on over to the iTunes App Store to update them.
