Microsoft just filled another nagging hole in its Windows Phone app catalog: PayPal today released an official client for the OS. The mobile payments app combines PayPal's recently refreshed color scheme with Windows Phone's "Modern UI Style" (no, we're still not used to calling it that) and contains all the traditional functionality you'd expect like sending/receiving payments and managing your account. Like its iOS and Android counterparts, PayPal for Windows Phone also lets you track down local businesses that have integrated the company's PayPal Here service. Though it's missing some extras such as the ability to snap a photo of your credit card to add it as a payment option, early reviews praise the app as stable and responsive — key pillars of Microsoft's mobile platform. PayPal is available from Windows Phone Marketplace now.
