Windows Phone users now have a new mobile app to download that promises to be something that can be used by the whole family. The Windows Phone blog has revealed that AboutOne has released its first mobile app as a Windows Phone exclusive. It's now available to download via the Windows Phone Marketplace.
The software uses your Windows Phone device to help organize you and your family's plans and activities. For example, photos taken from the Windows Phone device can then be uploaded to your AboutOne account to keep a running scrapbook of family sports events and other activities.
It also has some serious uses, for example, you can take or scan a picture of a receipt from a recent product purchase using the app. The AboutOne site can store that receipt picture as well as offer any "links to warranty info, user’s guide, and purchase place." If you have kids, you can access their medical information via the AboutOne app when you take them to the doctor's office for their regular appointment.
If there is some kind of emergency, the app can display things like emergency contacts and health information, even in locations where there is no cell phone service. Finally, if you happen to lose your Windows Phone product, the AboutOne app allows for password protection.
