Microsoft adds WP8 app to Windows Store just in time for launch

Microsft adds Windows Phone app to Windows Store ahead of WP 8 event

If you’re aiming to get your hands on one of the many Windows Phone 8 devices launching later today, it would be nice to be able to sync it with your Windows 8 PC, no? Redmond has you covered in the nick of time, as it’s just released the free Windows Phone app to its Windows Store. That’ll let you get music, photos, or video over to your computer and back, use Windows 8 apps to share things like searches, automatically save photos or videos taken with your phone to your PC and check your phone’s storage to see how it’s being used. It’ll also let allow you to download phone apps and learn more about your device, while pulling off a trick we’ve saw first with Apple, then WP7 — letting you track down your smartphone if it goes missing. You can grab it at the source, then all you’ll need is a WP8 (or 7.8) handset — so stay tuned for our liveblog at 10:00 am PST / 1:00 pm EST to see when that might happen.
