Windows Phone 8 Features
Make your phone your own
Now you can see everything that’s important to you at a glance. You don’t have to open your apps to find out what’s going on in your world. All you need to do is pin the Live Tiles you want to see on your Start screen and they’ll update in real time. This feature is unique to Windows Phone and gives you the power to create your own experience. Choose your colour and decide what you want to see; tweets, pics, posts from friends, holiday deals, the latest music and games. It’s all there, chosen by you.
Keep your loved ones close
Imagine you could bring everyone important to you together in one place. With Windows Phone you can. With People Hub, you can integrate all your contacts, including Facebook, Outlook and LinkedIn. You choose how you keep in touch; email, text, IM or Skype. You can swap photos, check out what your friends are up to, and invite everyone to a room to share ideas or create a group chat. It’s a revolutionary way to keep in touch.
Safe, secure and always with you
SkyDrive gives you the power to sync your files and access them anytime from your Windows phone. With automatic back up and 7GB of free storage, your photos, documents and videos are right there in the cloud, safe and secure, when you need them.
With Windows Phone, Microsoft Office and Outlook are integrated and work together seamlessly. Your phone even has mobile versions of Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint on hand for reviewing or editing on the go.
Over 120,000 apps to choose from
Love your apps? Then Windows Phone is for you. There is a huge range to choose from, no matter what you’re interested in. And not only can you pin your apps to your Start screen for live updates, but you can connect them to your searches so they’re easier to find and use. Most are free and if you’re not sure an app is for you, you can try it out first. And every app is certified by Microsoft to help keep you safe from internet nasties.
Everything you need to know from setting up to personalising your mobile.
