Lync 2010 on Android

Microsoft has released an app for Lync 2010 on the Android mobile platform.

It allows Android owners to connect to Microsoft’s unified communication solution, Lync.

One way to use Lync is by subscribing to Office365. Once your Office365 accounts are set up with Lync licences it takes seconds to get your Android device connected to your Lync account.

Open the Lync 2010 app on your device.

Enter your Office365 user name and password. Click sign in.

If everything goes to plan, you should connect to your Lync server.

Once connected you will be able to connect to other contacts.

Once I have some contacts I will be able to explore more of the app.

From first experiences the app is very slick, with a polished interface, not bad for a first release.

BT FON Android App

Just noticed an app on the Android marketplace allowing BT FON access through the phone. It allows Openzone and BT Fon hotspots to be found and automatically accessed once your BT account has been authenticated.

I tested the app at my local Starbucks with a nice venti Christmas blend and it works quite well. Just make sure you have your Wi-Fi turned on.
