Microsoft’s Garage incubator is testing six new apps with a variety of consumer-centric functions, including organizing projects and photos, sharing OneDrive files and managing writing assignments.
The apps were first noticed by Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet. Here is a brief description of each app from Microsoft:
- Cache: Bookmark and organize your content by projects, clients, tasks, or ideas, so you can easily see everything related together.
- Hearing AI: Experience sound and speech through graphical visualizations, and receive key notifications about vital sound changes in their environment.
- Project Copenhagen: The simplest way to view, attach, and share your OneDrive files to anyone with Gmail.
- Project Oceana: The quickest way to access and keep tabs on your Outlook inbox right from within your browser.
- Project Santorini: A fresh take on exploring and revisiting your photos.
- Write Ideas: Eases students through their writing assignments by helping them to express their creative ideas using voice, doodles and text.
The apps are being tested “by invitation,” and those interested in trying them out can sign up through a link in the app description.
