Microsoft's Visio diagram creation tool slated to be released for Windows phones

Microsoft has confirmed that it plans to release a version of its Visio diagram creation tool for Windows smartphones at some point in the future.

Neowin reports that Microsoft made that announcement at a panel today at its Ignite IT conference in Atlanta. It also stated a version would be released for Android smartphones. In August, Microsoft launched a preview version of Visio for the iPad. Microsoft has not announced a specific date for when the Android or Windows phone versions would be released.

Visio is part of the Microsoft Office family of productivity apps. It was first released in 1992 by the Shapeware Corporation, but Microsoft acquired both the company and its Visio app in 2000.
