OData Client Tools for Windows Phone Apps is recently released to add support for consuming OData v3 services. You may already have a Windows Phone 7.1 application that consumes OData and want to update it to work with OData V3 services using the new Windows Phone SDK 8.0 and OData Client Tools for Windows Phone Apps.
Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone SDK 8.0 were just announced and we are pleased to announce that OData Client Tools for Windows Phone 8 is also now available from the download center.
OData Client Tools for Windows Phone 8 brings OData V3 support to the Windows Phone platform.
