Call them the “mash and slash” Office apps. A new wave of productivity apps from Microsoft appear to have either one of two goals: mash together two or more Office apps, or strip down an existing Office app to its bare parts.
Last fall, those apps included Sway and Delve, Microsoft’s content-creation app and its tool for finding relevant contacts and information, respectively. But Microsoft’s new approach includes four new productivity tools: “Office Now,” OneClip, Revolve, and Flow. And Microsoft said Thursday that, as promised, its Sway app had begun rolling out as part of the full-fledged Office 365 suite.
Much of the credit goes to Twitter user Walking Cat, who posted shots of the apps themselves or even links to download the files themselves, including OneClip.
