Microsoft Sway expands its touch abilities

Microsoft has initially released Sway to those who wanted to use this creative tool via web and it works on any browser which made it cross platform. Now Microsoft is planning to take that cross platform experience to the actual touch focused apps on Windows 10, iPad and iPhone. Sway is available to the iPhone users since January of this year while the web based version is available from December last year.

With the latest announcement, iPad users will get the immediate access to the preview version of  Microsoft Sway and Windows 10 users have to wait for the arrival of Windows 10, i.e, on July 29. Sway team has said that will be some time in this summer only.

Building on your feedback, it is now easier than ever to add pictures, videos and text to your Sway. Previewing your creations is also quicker than before—simply switch between Edit and Preview at the top to see the polished and cohesive design taking shape as you create.

Sway for iPad is optimized for the larger screen. It allows you to create, view and share Sways in landscape and portrait mode and also includes a few additional capabilities, such as the Remix! button for quickly trying out different layouts and styles.

Now you can use the Sway interface in Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish (in addition to English). Sway for iPhone and iPad are also now available in the App Store for 43 new markets where those are official languages

This update is available for iPhone users as well. Remember that Sway for iPhone and iPad support Office 365 business and the education users which means that you can use either your work or school login credentials to sign into these apps to create, edit and view the Sways.
