Microsoft's rumored Office Now app will help you keep track of your work schedule

Microsoft's rumored Office Now app will help you keep track of your work schedule
Yesterday, we told you about a cross-platform clipboard app rumored to be coming from Microsoft. Called OneClip, the app acts like a virtual clipboard giving you a place to write and access memos, notes, phone numbers and other content. Microsoft is also believed to be prepping another productivity app called Office Now.

When you open the app, you will see an "executive summary" that shows your schedule for the day, including meetings. If you have back-to-back meetings at different locations, the app will tell you how long it will take you to get to the second one. And Office Now will tell you when there has been a change to the scheduled time of a meeting, or if the meeting has been canceled or moved to another location.

Other features include the at-a-glance summary, which gives you a look at your day from your Lock Screen or notification center, a card that will tell you traffic conditions along your daily commute, and a Highlights card that tells you when your daily events start and end for the day. A missed call card not only lists any calls you couldn't or didn't want to answer, it also gives you a way to return each call quickly using a quick action button.

The app is going to be available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, like OneClip, once it is out of private beta.

I like its polished look. Somehow, it reminds me of Google Now.

So it's like Cortana, but dedicated to office?
