Microsoft working on new Outlook companion app Flow for iPhone
Microsoft is working on a new lightweight Outlook companion app for iPhone called Flow. This app is currently available for internal testing among the Microsoft employees for iPhone. This information is leaked out by the popular Microsoft leaker Walking cat. It posted the image of the download page with some information about app on their Twitter account. The description about Flow is as follows.
Use Flow with anyone, it’s email: Reach anyone with an email address and all conversations for you and others are also in Outlook. You can use Flow and Outlook together one by one to participate in the same conversations.
Fast, fluid, natural conversations: No subject lines, salutations or signatures. Flow is designed for fast and light view conversations in real time.
Focus on what’s important: Only conversations started in Flow and their replies show up in Flow, not your whole inbox. Focus on your most important person to person conversations without noise.
Above information reveals that, Flow for iphone is the combination of messaging app with email client. Like other Microsoft services, Flow likely to be launched on Android and Windows Phone down the road. Microsoft’s actual plans are unclear making Flow app as the possible garage experiment and something more substantial.
Flow works better than Outlook as well and you can also use Gmail account too and our sources didn’t agree on what was powering backend, either it could be IMAP or POP3. App user interface looks like traditional chat app and also supports group chat and sending of picture too. Current video chat is not supported, it might be introduced in future.
