Microsoft Sway arrives on iPad and is coming to Windows 10 this summer

Microsoft has confirmed that it will be bringing its multimedia presentation tool Sway to Windows 10 PCs and tablets this summer. It has also just launched a Sway app for the iPad too.

Sway is part of the Office 365 productivity suite and allows users to build presentations and interactive reports using images, videos and text.

Following in the footsteps of Microsoft’s more well-known Office apps – namely Word, Excel and PowerPoint – it’s already available as an app for Windows 8 and iPhone – which has also just received an update – and is expected to launch on Android at some point too.

Microsoft has said that Sway for Windows 10 will be a native app, which means that it has been developed especially for the new operating system and will deliver a touch-first experience.

Similarly, Sway for iPad is optimised for the larger screen. Both versions for the iPad and iPhone now allow you to automatically log in to Office 365 and support eight languages, including Japanese. Microsoft has said more languages are on their way.

Last month, Microsoft began offering business and education Office 365 customers the opportunity to try out Sway on the web. At the moment, it’s just available to First Release customers, but over the next few months all Office 365 users will be able to get their hands on it.
