Users can also purchase Skype Credits to call and text other contacts, as well as create and hold one-to-one group chats and update their profile and account information from within the app. Skype for Windows Phone is free, available in 18 languages and works on devices running Windows Phone 7.5 or above.
Use the Google Drive app to store files in the cloud, which enables you to access important documents from anywhere and share them with colleagues,
friends and family.
