We're mere weeks away from the launch of Windows Phone 8, but PayPal has arrived on the current form of Windows Phone, surprisingly. iOS and Android have both long enjoyed having the payment system application on their respective operating systems, and now it's Microsoft's turn.
The PayPal for Windows Phone app lets users check their balances, withdraw funds from their PayPal accounts, and look at previous transactions. There's also the ability to pay for items, as long as the store you're using has a PayPal Here service set up.
I'm really surprised we saw the release of PayPal on Windows Phone so close to Windows Phone 8, if it were up to me, I would've just waited and debuted it with the launch of Windows Phone 8. If you're a Windows Phone user, and want to get in on the PayPal action, you can grab it here.
