Microsoft Corporation has just decided to roll out its own app market in Android and its aptly named Microsoft Apps.
Microsoft Apps is described to be the way for Android users to scroll through and find all of Microsoft apps available in one place right within the Google Play Store. Moreover, Microsoft has also taken the liberty of organizing its available apps for download into various categories, such as Productivity, Entertainment, News, Communication, Education and more.
This means, there is now one place where Android users can go to download various Microsoft products into their mobile device for free, including Microsoft Excel, OneNote, Microsoft Outlook, OneDrive, Arrow Launcher, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Office Mobile, My Xbox LIVE, Outlook Web App for Android, Office Lens, Next Lock Screen, Skype for Business, Office Remote for Android, Microsoft Translator, Bing Search, Sunrise Calendar, MSN News, Wordament, MSN Weather, Snap Attack, Microsoft Health, AppComparison, Intune Company Portal, Halo Channel, Journey & Notes, Microsoft Startup Directory, Microsoft Tech Companion, Bing Ads, Crafting Guide, Intune PDF Viewer, MSN Money, Switch to Windows, Microsoft Channel 9, Dynamics NAV and a whole lot more.
Last month too, Microsoft had introduced PowerApps. This is actually said to be an enterprise service that will allow people to “connect, create and share” their business app to the rest of their team on any device quickly. Microsoft believes there is actually an “innovation gap” as far as mobile apps are concerned there are not enough skilled mobile developers in the world today and this pretty much what inspired to introduce a service like this.
As for Microsoft Apps, there is actually not much apps available now. But Microsoft promises there will be “more coming soon.”
