Project Austin Revives the Microsoft Courier with a New Windows 8 Note APPBy
When Good e-Reader first started many moons ago, one technology we were plenty excited about was the Microsoft Courier. It was designed to be a dual-screen tablet that appealed to business professionals, designers, and artists. This project was unceremoniously canceled, but the technology was recently revised. It has transitioned from hardware into a new note taking app designed for Windows 8 tablets and computers.
Austin is a digital note-taking app for Windows 8. You can add pages to your notebook, delete them, or move them around. You can use digital ink to write or draw on those pages. You can add photos from your computer, from SkyDrive, or directly from your computer’s camera. You can share the notes you create to other Windows 8 apps such as e-mail or SkyDrive. You can even use a stylus and choose different types of paper and sizes of pen.
