Picks

Tip of the week: Xbox Live Rewards

Software pick of the week: Facebook Messenger for Windows Phone 8

Facebook this week released a Facebook Messenger app for Windows Phone 8. A bit belatedly when you consider the versions for Android and iOS arrived about two years ago. But the big question isn't so much the timing. It's, what's the point?

Note: MetroTwit for Windows Desktop and Windows 8 have been EOL'd.

The Dynamics team continues to build more LOB Windows 8 apps than almost any other unit at MS: http://www.zdnet.com/microsofts-dynamics-unit-delivers-a-new-windows-8-app-and-a-modern-development-kit-7000026970/
