Microsoft has been showing a little more love to Android as of late with the release of apps like Remote Desktop and Xbox Music. Now the business set is getting some attention with the new Dynamics CRM app.

If you've never heard of Dynamics DRM, you probably don't have any use for it. CRM stands for customer relationship management – it's a tool for tracking sales, supporting users, and managing business relationships. This is an enterprise app with narrow appeal, but high value. Businesses that use CRM tools tend to rely on them heavily.

A Dynamics CRM license starts at $65 per user per month. If you don't work for a company that uses Dynamics CRM, feel free to go about your day. In fact, why did you even read this far?

    If my company still used this CRM system, I would be all over it.

    There's an Xbox Music app. I might check it out. The Windows 8 app isn't to bad right now.

    Can't find the CRM Client for Android in the Google Play Store. How about a link to download it for testing?

    Maybe they are getting smarter over in Redmond...
    This new found focus on Android is a smart move considering their core business is desktops which run their OS and since Android dominates the Tablet and phone market it only makes sense that they make these things available or have other systems that do integrate being used instead.

    Does anyone think that the sudden influx of offerings by Microsoft on Android is a sign that they don't think they'll get the marketshare they need on WP?

    The app doesn't appear to work with Dynamics CRM Online. You can log in at https://username.crm.dynamics.com but logging in as ...@...onmicrosoft.com user Throws "unsupported browser" messages.
