Microsoft launches four new Android apps
While Google may not release any Windows Phone apps anytime soon, the Redmond giant's Garage project has a few interesting Android apps to show off already. The Microsoft Garage project website has four new Android apps featured on its front page, including a voice-controlled game and an alternative to the default Google Android lock screen (and those countless other choices).
These are the four new Android apps by Microsoft:
- Next Lock Screen - includes SMS and missed calls notification, appointments, even a space where favorite apps can be arranged and launched directly
- Bing Torque - Android Wear app that searches using Bing instead of Google and starts the voice search after a twist of the wrist instead of the notorious "OK Google" voice command
- Journeys & Notes - social location-tracking app that allows you to connect to other people who visited the same places
- Voice Commander - a combination of a real time strategy game and a top-down shooter that can be played by up to eight players using voice commands
All these apps will be freely available through Google Play Store soon.
