Make Skype Calls Directly From Your Outlook.com Inbox
Even with the best email service, sometimes text isn’t enough, and we all face those situations where it is just easier to jump on a call to talk something out. We know sometimes a quick call can accomplish more than a long email reply.
That’s why we are bringing Skype audio and video calling to your inbox. Now, with Skype for Outlook.com, you can choose the right medium for your message, whether it is an email, call, video call or instant message (IM) — you can connect with your Skype and Messenger friends all in the same place.
This experience will start rolling out in the U.K. today, is coming to the U.S. during the coming weeks and is on track to be available worldwide this summer.
For those of you in the U.K., download the Skype plugin for Outlook.com now.
Tumblr for Windows Phone was released. You can post on your Tumblr, check your dashboard, and explore different topics. It’s fast and it looks really good.
When you open the app, you see your dashboard. These are posts from people you follow. With one swipe, you can explore different topics from people you don’t follow. This app makes it very easy to post, like, and reblog so Tumblr users on Windows Phone will be happy.
Another cool feature is support for animated images. You see the animations only after you scroll a page. For example, if I click on this topic here, a page will show up. The images won’t animate until you actually start scrolling down.
There are a couple of things to complain about. Right now, you can’t swipe through photo galleries. You actually have to press the left and right buttons. Swiping would definitely feel better. I hope it gets added in an update. Another complaint I have is that I can only post one photo per post. In the next version, I would like the option to upload multiple photos.
Even with these complaints, I still think this app is really good. It’s fast and it looks beautiful. It’s available at the Windows Phone Store right now for free. You can scan the QR code I’ve included in this video so you can download it directly.
