Cortana for Android Public Beta Now Downloadable for All

Cortana, the Microsoft-made personal assistant, is now available for all to download on Google Play. Still sporting a beta tag, Cortana offers most of what Siri or Google Now provides you, with exception that she is powered by Bing, Microsoft’s search platform. When speaking to Cortana, you can ask her to set alarms, get calendar event reminders, and quite a bit more.

Turn Your iPhone into a Pocket Scanner with Office Lens by Microsoft

On a previous post I introduced you to a very useful app called CamScanner which gave you the ability to quickly scan documents of all kinds and auto-optimize the scans quality using its unique technology all by your phones camera. Now Microsoft has stepped in and released a free app called Office Lens which trims, enhances and makes pictures of whiteboards and documents readable. Office Lens can convert images to editable Word and PowerPoint files too.

Office Lens is like having a scanner in your pocket. Like magic, it will digitalize notes on whiteboards or blackboards. Always find important documents or business cards. Sketch your ideas and snap a picture for later. Don’t lose receipts or stray sticky notes again!

Google may have given you an additional free 2GB of Drive storage for life, but what if you happen to be a heavy Windows user (or someone who loves free stuff) and would rather have bundles of free storage added to your OneDrive account? If you somehow fit that description or situation (most of you will on some level), then well, we have a deal for you. Through the Bing Rewards program, you can secure an additional 100GB of free OneDrive storage for the next two years, basically by doing nothing…other than joining Bing Rewards…and then clicking a button.
