App in the store, simply called Lync. I tested this on my non-touch laptop, but clearly it is all made to work with touch

It seems you cannot share your desktop or apps but can see a sharing session:

When the person is sharing you can swipe left and right to switch between content and mini video and larger video

    Hey,
    that Looks brilliant.
    I tried it with my Lync-Online-Account but I can´t log in.
    When I mistype my password it says that it is wrong, so the app is able to contact the server.
    But when I type it correctly it takes a few seconds and then I get the Login-Screen again.

    I dont have any Problem with Lync 2010 Client.

    Regards
    supp
