The Xstran Office 365 Mobile Admin app for Windows 8 is finally here!

screenshot_01022013_215848My first app for Windows 8 has finally been published to the Windows Store under my Xstran brand.

I’ve gotta say it’s a bit different than the Windows Phone marketplace – tighter rules around age classifications, text had to be added to explain that the app doesn’t work without an Office 365 environment, and a few other things all made it that extra bit challenging.

In any case head on over here to download it:
