CloudOn has announced it will be extending its mobile app for iOS and Android to the web, making it another competitor in the list of cloud-based Office suites. CloudOn allows users to edit, share, and view documents created in Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint.

\"CloudOnUsers can access the CloudOn web interface via Google Chrome and Apple Safari, and the company plans to add Firefox and Internet Explorer to the list in the near future.

The company has slowly rolled out web compatible features such as FileSpace, which keeps track of every edit and update made to a document so that collaboration with others can be more efficient.

CloudOn has been a free service, and will remain that way, save for a few features. Users that want to track changes in Microsoft Office, use pivot tables in Excel, or presentation mode in PowerPoint will need to opt for the CloudOn Pro subscription. Users can subscribe through an in app purchase of $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year.

CloudOn wants to help workers reduce the amount of documents sent via email and time spent searching for old documents. In a statement released alongside the announcement, Jay Zaveri, VP of Product at CloudOn said “At CloudOn we really care about how users organize and share documents. This latest launch not only gives users the comfort of accessing CloudOn through a browser but also enables team sharing and editing of docs in a convenient and easy way.\”

The web interface is available now and is compatible with Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and SkyDrive, similar to the mobile apps.
