Microsoft Office Sway
Microsoft Office Sway is a new application in the Office Suite that provides a cloud-based, touch-enabled toolset for creating interactive documents. Office Sway is in many ways an evolution of Microsoft's Word document and PowerPoint presentations applications, adding interactive, mobile-friendly capabilities to the traditionally static documents and presentations created by these apps.
Microsoft Office Sway users create their "Sways" with an interactive canvas built from the ground up for the Web and mobile devices, so that the Sway dynamically adapts to fit the device it will be viewed on.
Developed with the Cloud and Mobile Devices in Mind
Sways offer cloud native capabilities that enable users to add content to a Sway via cloud storage, or from any mobile device or social network. The Sway files themselves are stored in Microsoft's Azure cloud, and photos and other multimedia content used in the Sway presentations can be stored in Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage service.
Office Sway debuted on October 1st, 2014 as an invitation-only preview from Microsoft before being opened Sway up to the public in December 2014. Native mobile apps for Sway are being developed for Apple's iOS, Android and Windows Phone.
