For over two weeks now, I’ve secretly made a major change to my daily workflow and have been using as many Microsoft mobile apps on PC, tablet, and smartphone as possible. And my relative levels of success speak volumes, I think, to the state of Microsoft’s mobile efforts here in mid-2016.
First, I do want to get one thing out of the way. I know that many of you will read the preceding paragraph and think something along the lines of, “Shocker: A Microsoft blogger is using Microsoft apps and services.” And truth be told, I did consider a tongue-in-cheek clickbaity-type headline for that very reason. But I don’t want to diminish the message here with humor, as I think this is in fact a very important topic.
