It’s been only 10 weeks since Sway Preview was launched, and there's already been over one million unique visitors to Sway.com and over 175,000 requests to join, and those numbers grow by thousands daily. On the back of this demand, Sway Preview is now open to everybody – with no waitlist!
The Sway team is asking educators for their help in shaping the future of the app!
