Windows Phone 8 officially launched, brings in Live Apps, Rooms, Kid’s Corner & more
Microsoft made it a point to make the Lockscreen of the Windows Phone 8 livelier and let it not be just with some wallpaper. This feature will go on to bring information right onto your Start screen, for e.g. a Groupon deal of the day, flight information or the news headlines.
The Skype has been redesigned for the Windows Phone 8 OS and it will now be ‘Always On’ over your device which will enable you to receive calls on your WP8 smartphone anytime. Oh and if you are worrying about the battery drain, Microsoft has made it a point that the app doesn’t run any of its codes in the background so you still save the juice of your battery.
