Softonic’s App of the Week highlights some of the coolest, most unique, and popular apps that have been released for Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac. This week we are looking at Microsoft’s long awaited update to their productivity suite, Office 2016 for Mac.

The last Office release for Mac was back in 2010, meaning many of the features Windows users take for granted were notable absent on Apple machines. This recent preview release of Office 2016 for Mac redresses this balance, bring Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Excel up to date with a new interface, while also adding OneDrive and SharePoint functionality to aid collaborative projects.

Also joining the classic list of apps in the productivity suite is OneNote, the digital notebook that lets you easily take and organize your notes. It may not be a deal breaker, but it is a nice addition to the package nonetheless.

Mac users should definitely give this early build of Office 2016 a try.
