Microsoft’s Garage Projects seem to constantly be coming and going, but the last couple of months have seen more releases than usual. Last month Microsoft released a quirky new alarm clock called “Mimicker Alarm,” and now the maker of the flopped Android competitor Windows Phone has released two more projects: Hub Keyboard, and Sprightly…

Everyone can use an Echo Dot: Just $50!

First up is Hub Keyboard, which — yep, you guessed it — is yet another third-party keyboard for Android. Like other keyboards, this one offers some features that can’t be found elsewhere. Hub Keyboard has a few buttons above it for quick access to text you may want to enter. You can click one to access recent items on your clipboard, you can search through docs to send, you can quickly send someone’s contact, and you can also easily translate text.

While Hub Keyboard is something — like Mimicker Alarm — that pretty much anyone can use, Sprightly is a little more obscure. Sprightly is its own app that lets you quickly create professional-grade e-cards, price lists, catalogs and flyers for your business. Businesses can then, with just a few taps, share these on social media and with customers.

Check out the videos below for an overview of both Hub Keyboard and Sprightly, which are both available for free on the Play Store right now.
