  • Microsoft's "Flow by Outlook" iPhone App Information Leaked on the Web

    Microsoft seems to be developing a streamlined chat and email application for the iPhone, which goes by the name of Flow by Outlook. The project was revealed after a leaked download webpage that was marked “Microsoft Confidential” was recently revealed. The page was discovered by a Twitter user that goes by the name @h0x0d and described the app as a “great way to have rapid email conversations on your phone with the people who are important to you.”

    By utilizing the app, users can reach anyone with an email address, the page adds, and conversations started in Flow can then be continued via Outlook. What appears to be the biggest different in Flow is that salutations, signatures and in some cases, even subject lines appear to be dropped. This in reality makes the structure seem very similar to that of instant messaging. Furthermore, any email exchanges that aren’t started in Flow will be hidden in the app.

    When asked about the app, a Microsoft spokesperson told ZDNet that the company had nothing to share. Although the comment made by the spokesperson doesn’t tell us much, what it does confirm is that the app does exist but as of right now, there doesn’t seem to be any information regarding its availability or what it will look like. What we do know is that Microsoft already has an iOS version of Outlook but the company appears to be releasing several small-scale Office iOS apps that can be used for various different tasks. Flow could be Microsoft’s solution to compete with the popularity of lightweight email apps such as Google Inbox.
