Microsoft’s Send is a unique app, where it happens to be a short form e-mail app that is available for the iPhone over in the U.S. and Canada, although it is well on its way to the Windows Phone platform, not to mention being made available on the Google Play store for Android-powered devices. Basically, Microsoft Send works best for folks who make use of Office 365 business and school email accounts, and do expect it to be available in a broader sense in the months ahead.
With Microsoft Send, one will be able to enjoy the equivalent of a simple, quick text message-like experience, and at the same time, reaching out to the rest of your colleagues with the rest of your communications remaining in Outlook for future reference. Basically, Send enables one to send (hence its name) any colleague a message sans the need for a subject line or any of those formal email setups.
I suppose some might think that this is an overlap of instant messaging, but it comes in handy in a large organization where you do not have everyone’s phone number, but most likely you can trace down someone else’s email, so keeping in touch quickly via their smartphones is the ideal way to do so. Send also does away with signatures, subject lines and salutations, and it keeps things simple by showing just emails that are started in the app. [Press Release]
