Tumblr has just launched an app for Windows Phone 8, aiming to deliver an experience uniquely suited to Microsoft’s mobile OS. Like the company’s existing offerings on iOS and Android, you’ll be able to follow users, post to your own Tumblr in a variety of formats, and yes — there’s full GIF support baked in.

Twitter just released a redesigned app for Windows Phone versions 7 and above, which includes the four new navigation tabs (Home, Connect, Discover, and Me) also found on Twitter’s other mobile apps for Android and iOS. But the Windows Phone app contains the unique feature of being able to pin select Twitter accounts, searches and lists as “live tiles” to Windows Phone’s start screen, which will automatically update with new content as it becomes available.

According to Microsoft, the novel attribute will be readily available today, but it is rolling out slowly, so fret not if you’re not seeing it appear simply yet.
