Expanding on its previous pledge to bring Visio to iPad, Microsoft revealed this week plans for Visio on iPhone and the web as well.
“Visio has been a trusted tool in diagramming for more than a decade,” the Visio team notes in a new post to the Office Blogs. “And we know its visual communication in the form of diagrams will become more powerful when anyone in the company can consume—regardless of their location or device.”
To the end, Microsoft revealed in October that it would port Visio to the iPad, and it started a limited preview that quickly filled up. Today, the firm revealed that it is bringing Visio to the web and iPhone as well. And that public preview versions of Visio Viewer for iPad and Visio Online are now available.
Visio Online Preview and Visio Viewer for iPad both work with OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online so you can storage and share your diagrams with colleagues across devices, Microsoft says.
“Built for iPad Retina display, Visio Viewer for iPad brings high-fidelity viewing of real-world processes and plans on the go,” Microsoft explains. “With the new exploration experience, plant managers can zoom in to production line issues from remote facilities, financial advisors can examine detailed workflows of a loan approval process while visiting clients around the world, retail district managers can conduct store management trainings with associates using detailed CAD-based store layouts and much more.”
You can download Visio Viewer for iPad today. Microsoft says that Visio will come to the iPhone in the “coming months.”
