Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore is knee deep in his Reddit AMA at the moment, and a few interesting bits are being revealed. In a question targeted at apps lagging behind on iOS and Android, Belfiore singled out Skype and Facebook as examples of apps they’re working on.
Specially, a new Skype app is being tested that is supposed to help with performance. In addition, an update to the Facebook app is slated for June with “improvements to performance, having full-width photos in the newsfeed, and seeing photos & comments at the same time”.
That’s great news for Windows Phone users and we imagine these are 8.1 optimized apps, leveraging some of the new features in the OS. We’ll be keeping an eye out for more.
