Microsoft is making it easier for people to run their businesses from their phones with the launch of the Sprightly app.
Sprightly is yet another app from Microsoft Garage, a project lab that lets Microsoft employees work on developments that typically have no relation to their primary function within the company. The app helps users quickly create digital content for both business and personal needs. For instance, small- and medium-sized businesses can leverage the app to make flyers, catalogs, price lists and e-card reminders directly from their phones.
It is important to note that Sprightly enables users to re-use existing content like photographs, as well as offers templates and enables users to share content on WhatsApp and Facebook. The app is free to download, but currently only available for Android devices.
“Sprightly is quite unique in its creation flow, choice of output and the ability to quickly recycle existing content to create new ones,” said Mahesh Sridharan, a senior program manager at Microsoft and one of the team leaders on this project. “There are choices that the user makes while creating content that results in a highly customized output that addresses specific needs of the market.”
