TechCrunch is reporting that Microsoft’s latest mobile app, which is available to both Windows and Android phones, has some critics.
The software, which Microsoft claims dispenses information to mobile devices in the same way that Microsoft Word does, uses a proprietary algorithm to determine which items on a page are relevant and relevant items on the page are not.
Microsoft’s app also uses some algorithms to determine whether it is safe to download and use the app.
According to TechCrunch, the company is planning to release a public app for Android devices that will be free of the software’s proprietary algorithms.
The app will be available on both the Windows Phone and Android devices, though the Android app will not have Microsoft’s proprietary software.
