How to download PowerPoint free for iPhone?
As you already know, to be able to get hold of this application for your iPhone you're going to have to go to Apple's official application store, iTunes, and download it from there. Make sure you're on a WiFi network because it's a heavy app that can wipe out your data plan.
The download is free and doesn't require any kind of registry or sign-up. However, the program only works for free for 30 days on a trial version. After that period, you need to pay an Office 365 subscription through the in-app purchases available in the application to be able to continue enjoying all its advantages.
