Australian mobile operator Telstra has been behind Windows Phone since the beginning, but the company is rolling out the beta for its 24x7 Windows Phone app. Customers are now able to sign up to the program and try out the features available in the solution. Just like other apps already available from other mobile operators, Telstra 24x7 will enable customers to check account usage and perform tasks.
If you've been waiting for an app to be released that enables you to log in and check out exactly how much of your account allowance you've used, the wait will soon be over with this early beta program going underway. The team is currently looking at ironing out bugs and seeing how the current set of features and functionality holds out against what customers both expect to see and demand from such an official offering.
A beta message board has been set up for Telstra customers to collaborate and communicate feedback with the team for improvements to be applied before the gold version is released. Some screenshots are teased in the official thread, announcing the beta program going live:
At first glance, the Telstra 24x7 app looks great, taking cues from Microsoft's Modern UI to offer a simple, yet elegant interface. Data is neatly presented and there's little clutter to prevent you from getting on with account management. This ensures you spend less time sorting through menus and more time enjoying the smartphone experience.
You can sign up for the beta via the Telstra community forum. Since this is a beta, be sure to leave feedback and suggestions for the team to look over. We'll look forward to seeing the app go live on the Windows Phone Store for all Telstra customers to take download and enjoy. As with all Windows Phone betas, have your Microsoft ID handy to be provided access.
