Windows Phone Companion App

Microsoft is integrating everything and killing the Zune name (again). Xbox companion and now the Windows Phone companion app. Now, you get a metro styled interface when you plug in your phone to a Windows 8 powered PC. It connects and allows you to access the pictures, videos, music and documents on your phone.

Microsoft has been retiring a number of its Zune desktop app features recently, in preparation for the upcoming switch to Xbox Music. While the company is readying its new music subscription service, Microsoft will also introduce new apps to manage and sync Windows Phone 8 devices. Sources close to Microsoft’s WIndows Phone plans have revealed the look and feel of a Windows 8 companion app for Windows Phone 8 devices.
