Microsoft shows Android some love with new Garage apps


Microsoft is giving some more love to Android with a handful of exclusive apps. The new Android apps include a voice control tool for Android Wear smartwatches called Bing Torque, a journaling app called Journeys and Notes, and an alternative lock screen called Next Lock Screen. They’re all available free from the Google Play Store.

Google might not be interested in building apps for Windows Phone, but Microsoft isn’t holding any grudges. Starting today, the software giant is expanding its Garage project to give outsiders a chance to see what Microsoft employees create inside the company during their free time. Some of those projects might be iOS, Windows, or Android apps, but the really interesting ones, and the ones Microsoft is choosing to highlight today, are for Google’s Android operating system.
