Flow, Microsoft’s latest app to arrive on Windows 10 Mobile platform

3

Microsoft Flow, which was released back in April last year, is a workflow tool with which you can create and handle automated tasks such as receiving getting SMS notifications on certain events, syncing files between OneDrive and PC, Mass mailing through MailChimp, committing pull requests to your repository on GitHub and much more.

The app was at first an online site, for which later iOS and Android apps were released. The beta version of the app has been around for a while, but now it has finally arrived on the Windows Mobile platform as a general public release with the Microsoft Flow app.

The store description reads:

This easy-to-use business app helps you create, monitor, and manage automated workflows between your web services, files, and cloud-based data. Create a flow to automatically capture, track, and follow up with new sales leads, or automate notifications telling your team when a work item is updated – create the flows that work for you!

Flow supports a large number of services including Microsoft products like OneDrive, Yammer, Outlook, Office and even MailChimp, GitHub, Salesforce, Slack etc. The app can be used as an alternative to IFTTT and Zapier like services. This app is definitely for the power users, something the mainstream public should avoid if they can.

The features include:

  • Create new flows when you need them – from anywhere!
  • Trigger flows to run at the tap of a button
  • Manage your flows from anywhere
  • Monitor flow success
  • Review detailed run history reports
  • View and filter runs by notification type

The app is publicly out for Windows 10 Mobile and can be installed from the link below:
