Microsoft’s Sway, a new tool for telling your story without the hassle is now available for all to use without invitations.

The company said in the ten weeks since Sway’s preview website launched, it had 175,000 requests to join and a million unique visitors.

Sway is also getting a number of new features today following user requests. Microsoft has added undo and redo, bulleted lists, direct text editing on the canvas, easier reordering, PDF import and more.

It appears Microsoft is still limiting the iPhone app by country; as it’s now made it available in Australia as well as New Zealand. The iPhone app also got an update and now allows you to create Sways offline, along with better cross platform support and support for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
