The app is yet another offering from Microsoft Garage, a Microsoft project lab that lets employees work on projects in their leisure time, having no relation to their primary function within the company.

The Sprightly app from Microsoft holds some promise for owners running small enterprises to quickly create and design content like fliers, coupons, catalogs, price lists, e-card reminders and more. Besides creating, the app offers the ability to share them across social media (WhatsApp, Facebook, etc).

Using the app is pretty simple. You simply have to capture an image or upload one from your gallery. Then, browse the catalog of templates to choose the desired one, and customize your design.

An important highlight of the application is that it features expanded collection of templates with more colors and styles than it ever had.

Since the app is designed keeping in mind small enterprise units, Its target audience is small- and mid-size business customers for whom their Android phones is the primary mean of communication.

Most of the apps released by Microsoft Garage are in the early stages of the development. These apps are primarily released by Microsoft just to Microsoft Garage just to get the reaction of its customer. So, while some apps were outright very innovative (Word Flow keyboard) and widely accepted by users others failed to make a mark and garner praises. Which category Sprightly falls into – only time will tell.
