Microsoft Garage today launched a new app for…Windows! The company’s new app, Plumbago is an app for Windows 10 and 8.1 that reimagines digitial notetaking.
Plumbago includes Notebooks where you can store your digital notes. You can use a stylus to draw, or a mouse to draw and take notes in Plumbago.
“We were thinking about how to make a great experience that really took advantage of the Surface and its pen, and could replace a physical notebook. There are tactile, perceptive and visual properties about a real notebook that are hard to displace. So our goal was to create a neat Windows app using technology that could potentially displace those physical and perceptive artifacts,” says Gavin Jancke, general manager of engineering in Microsoft Research also serving as the user interface software engineer for the app. “So here we are today with something that will hopefully resonate well with consumers,” who he encourages to help test the experience and give feedback to refine the technology.
