I’ve had fun the past few months being a part of Team Windows Phone, and for my last official post I want to show how seamlessly my Windows Phone fits in with the other Windows products I already own.
As recently as a couple years ago I always had at least one thumb drive on me at all times – there was always some post or project I was working on and I always wanted the most up-to-date version with me as I moved from computer to computer. Working on documents on my phone wasn’t even really an option.
And the emails! I was constantly emailing things to myself so that I could access them later, and I would always lose track of which version was the latest. It was a mess.
That all started to change when I got my first Windows Phone. Now, between my Windows 7 desktop, My Windows 8 laptop, my Surface RT tablet, and my Windows Phone, everything I need to access is synced over SkyDrive – no more thumb drives!
A great example is my shopping list, which I keep on One Note (the greatest, most overlooked Windows invention ever). I probably have it open on every screen I own right now. If I make a change to the list on my laptop, when I go to the list on my phone the change will be there. And I don’t have to be on my home Wi-Fi network for that to happen.
Pictures are also easier to access than ever before. I have my phone set so that when I take a picture – and am on Wi-Fi – the full-size image is instantly uploaded to SkyDrive. And since I’ve shared my SkyDrive Camera Roll folder with my computers, it is then automatically downloaded to my laptop and desktop. No cords, no emailing pictures to myself, no manual syncing. It just happens.
The day will come, I’m sure, when the camera surgically implanted into my eyeball automatically uploads pictures to the smart phone visible under the skin on my arm, but for now, my Windows Phone connectability is feeling pretty futuristic!
