  • Question

  • Can Apps for Office be developed and used in mobile devices like Apple iOS, Android devices?  What does it take to build a truly global Office 365 app(Desktop,laptop, mobiles etc)? Do we just need to use HTML & JavaScript or do we get to use C# as well?

    Pls provide some guidelines and shed some light on this.

    Thanks.

    >>Can Apps for Office be developed and used in mobile devices like Apple iOS, Android devices?   <<

    Yes. Office Add-ins are supported on a growing number of Office host applications running on the desktop, tablets, mobile devices, and in Office Online in the browser. In many cases, this means you can develop a single add-in that runs on different operating systems and Office host applications. And, your customers will have a consistent experience using your add-in across the desktop, their devices, or web browsers.

    There are no addition code need to support multiple Office application on the different device. It depends on the requirement for the solution you need to developing. However, you may need to note the API in the Office add-in may support some kind of device and need to handle the exception.

    >>Do we just need to use HTML & JavaScript or do we get to use C# as well?<<

    Use the Office Add-ins platform to create engaging new consumer and enterprise experiences for Office client applications. Using the power of the web and standard web technologies like HTML5, XML, CSS3, JavaScript, and REST APIs, create add-ins that interact with Office documents, email messages, meeting requests, and appointments. You can use any server side developing language you are familiar with.
