New Vimeo and Microsoft Insider Windows Phone 8 apps released

A few weeks ago, Vimeo launched its official Windows 8 app for the company's online video streaming and sharing service. Today, Vimeo has launched its official app for Windows Phone 8 devices, but apparently at the expense of the older Windows Phone 7 version, at least for now.

Microsoft noted the launch of the new app on its official Windows Phone blog today. The free app adds some features made especially for Windows Phone 8. That includes the ability to share Vimeo videos between phones via its NFC "tap-to-share" mode.

Unfortunately, this new 1.3 version of the app is apparently for Windows Phone 8 owners only. Indeed, as notes, the previously released Windows Phone 7 Vimeo app has now been removed from the Windows Phone store. There's no word on if or when it will return.

Microsoft also noted that it has launched a new version of its own home-grown Microsoft Insider app for Windows Phone 8 devices. This new version adds some features such as the the ability to create and add your own custom ringtone, along with a way to read the latest news posts from the official Windows Phone blog and Facebook pages.
