A few weeks ago, Microsoft launched a web-based preview version of Sway, a new multimedia presentation app that's also the newest member of its Office software family. Today, Microsoft announced that it has launched a Sway app just for the iPhone, but there's a big catch; it's only available for New Zealand residents.

Microsoft stated:

People who sign in to Sway for iPhone will automatically be able to use Sway Preview on the web. Launching Sway for iPhone in New Zealand continues our approach to listening closely to our customers, adapting to their feedback, and building the future of Sway together. We'll be responding to initial reactions and improving the app experience before making it more broadly available.

Microsoft said that Sway for the iPhone will begin to roll out in the US and other U.S. English-speaking countries "soon".
