As mentioned above, the Microsoft Info Partner mobile app is now available for download in the Windows Phone Store and you can get it for yourself by clicking here or by simply scanning the code below on your Windows Phone.

Now, some of you may be wondering, “Does this replace the Microsoft Partner Info app that you expanded earlier this year (if so, why would you replace it?), Eric, or is this in addition to it (if so, why a second app)?” Great questions, and the answer is, this app replaces the other app. As for why this new app instead of just an update to the former app, well, that will take a little longer to explain, so you might want to read my, “What’s up with your Microsoft Information Partner app, Eric?” post, where I give you the details behind the decision to move to this new app.

Did you find this information helpful? If so, you may want to make sure you are utilizing all of the areas I share information online, such as:
