Why The Mobile Document Is Broken
Mobility has changed the way we work, yet document editors have not changed for mobile use. A recent mass consumer survey revealed there is a massive gap in mobile productivity solutions. 85 percent of people feel limited when working on documents from their mobile devices. And 80 percent want an easier way.
People feel limited in the following ways:
- 83 percent feel existing software/apps don’t work well enough
- 86 percent feel existing solutions are hard to navigate
- 65 percent cite incompatibility issues with Microsoft Word files

“CloudOn was the first company to bring Microsoft Office to mobile devices, delivering mobile productivity to millions of people,” said Milind Gadekar, CEO and co-founder of CloudOn. “We are excited to transform this space once again with the launch of our new doc editor. Users will benefit from the intuitive, designed-for-mobile experience, without loosing the functionality of Word documents.”
“The iPad is still a consumption device for most people,” said Jay Zaveri, co-founder and Chief Product Officer. “There’s been little innovation around mobile content creation – it’s still stuck in the ‘point and click’ era. Document creation can be fundamentally changed by ‘gesture-first’ design – tap, hold, grab and move things naturally. This launch is a step in that direction.”
