Office 365

Microsoft today announced the new Office Add-in platform that works across different platforms. So far, Office Add-ins works only in Office Windows desktop apps. But with this new app model, Office Add-ins can work across Office clients on Windows, iOS, Web and other supported platforms and it is based on HTML5/Javascript.

Microsoft demoed several examples of this add-in. For example, Uber is building a Outlook add-in, that allows you to request a driver based on content from your mail/meeting event.
