On September 9, 2015 Apple held its special event. Many product announcements were made, the notable being, iPad Pro and newer versions of iPhone 6S (and 6 Plus S), and Apple TV. But to me the most important one is the fact that the very first Demo in the event was made by Microsoft, showing off its MS Office made for iPad Pro; it was followed by Adobe Demo.
Microsoft and Adobe had their finest software products running on Apple hardware for ages. In between things were different; iPhone being a huge success while Microsoft Mobile being a huge failure and Adobe Flash getting bad mouthing by Apple rather publicly.
With Microsoft and Adobe embracing Apple hardware in the open, the users are much better off.
For the past one year the best experience I have is the e-mail reading experience; Gmail from Google on iPhone from Apple using Microsoft Outlook (Accompli).
What users finally want is such brilliant combinations; hopefully we are getting there!
