You can expect to save a lot of time by skipping unnecessary app switching

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has been experimenting a lot these days. Apart from releasing new apps for iOS and Android devices, it is also offering innovative new features which could have otherwise enhanced its own Windows devices, more specifically its Windows Phones. That being said, the tech giant is not to be taken lightly, and neither should its new keyboard app.

The Hub Keyboard is an Android app which is available for free, giving users all the information they will ever need, right at their fingertips. Going past the core function of sending out messages, the new keyboard app gives users quick access to their contacts and files.

There is a separate tab featured on Microsoft Hub Keyboard, through which users can access documents, emails, contacts, amongst other things. The best part is that a user can switch between these apps without having to exit their conversation.

In an official blog post, Microsoft explained that the Hub keyboard is the creation of Steve Won, Microsoft Office’s designer. After the idea was pitched, it was created and then finally released by Microsoft Garage for the rest of the world to enjoy.

The tech giant has been extensively working on creating new productivity apps for smartphones. In order to pursue this goal, it even partnered up with Cyanogen which is known for making modified versions of Android; thus, giving Microsoft all the leverage it needs to create some amazing applications.

Suffice to say, the Hub Keyboard will be received warmly by users who are constantly on the lookout for new ways to increase their productivity levels. The fact that Microsoft is not charging for the app just adds more to that warmth.
