Microsoft has launched a new email app for the iPhone called Microsoft Send, the apps is designed to send short and quick emails in a similar way to instant messenger.
The new Microsoft Send app is now available for the iPhone it will also be made available for Windows Phone and Android in the future.
The idea behind Microsoft Send is that you can send IM or text style emails to your email contacts quickly.
Imagine you’re walking into a big presentation and someone asks you to find out if your colleague will be attending. Chances are, you don’t have your colleague’s phone number, but you will probably have their email address—especially if you’ve been emailing with them recently. You don’t have time to search your inbox, start a new thread, or even type out a subject line. You just want to ask that person, “Will you be at the presentation?”
With Send, there are no signatures, subject lines or salutations required. Our design principle for the app was to make conversations fast and fluid while keeping the people who are important to you at its core. Send connects to Office 365 business and school email accounts to surface your frequent and recent contacts. The people who are important to you are put right at your fingertips—just tap on a contact to start a conversation. Or even better, simply swipe and choose a Quick Reply such as “On my way” or “I’ll get back to you.” You can also see when someone is typing their response; there’s never been a quicker way to reach someone over email.
