Sway is a free app from Microsoft Office that helps gather, format, and share your ideas, stories, and presentations on an interactive, web-based canvas that looks great on virtually any screen. You can easily create a new Sway by adding text, pictures, documents, videos, charts, or any other type of content, and Sway will make it look great in just a few easy steps. When you’re ready to tell your story, Sway makes it easy to share it with others.
