More on what I like about 8X and windows phone 8

Being VERY new to windows phone I might find things most wp used people will see as “old”, but this is from my point of view: total wp noob. Some of these things aren’t directly wp8 or 8x but still part of the whole experience.

  • With Office 2010 (I would assume 2013 as well) you can save a document directly to Skydrive, then you can open it in office on 8x. And then open it from skydrive on your computer again, this I saw as VERY cool since it saved a few clicks.
  • Put your own ringtones on the phone put connecting phone to computer and just simple drag the ringtones you want into the folder Ringtones on the 8X. This works with MP3 and WMA.
  • That you can download offline maps on the 8X

I’m sure that I will find more things as I get more used to it.
