Microsoft has released a new mobile app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad, the app is called Twist and it has been developed as part of Microsoft Garage.
The new Microsoft Twist app is designed to let you engage in photo conversations with your friends, have a look at the video below.
“When we were designing Twist, we observed that many of the digital ways people communicate today don’t allow for rich, expressive exchanges,” says Jennifer Shen, the principal program manager lead whose Silicon Valley-based team built Twist. “Many messaging apps are adding functionality to make their experiences feel richer, such as stickers, emoji and animated gifs. We wanted to look at ways we could make that experience even better. That’s how we landed on a photo canvas as a rich medium, as a way you can really share your current situation, funny moments, spark creativity, etc.”
The new Microsoft Twist app is available as a free download from iTunes and you can find out more details about the app over at Microsoft at the link below, the app is only available in the US and Canada at the moment.
