Microsoft releases first Android app

By on

Microsoft seems to be expanding outside Windows Mobile Phone, and who can blame them? A declining market share and huge rivals like RIM, Apple and Symbian taking over most of its share. Today, all the Android users will be delighted (or not) that Microsoft will be bringing its Tag application to the device.

If you have no idea what Tag is, think of the QR code – but in the Microsoft fashion, it uses a different design of barcodes. The barcodes, unlike the QR code, can also be designed in a pictorial fashion and can have colour. Also, all the data is sent back to Microsoft’s servers and it then checks it among its servers before returning a response.

Tag is already available on the iPhone, Windows Phones, Blackberry and Symbian.
