Discovery News has come out of the woodwork to release a new Windows Phone app, matching the Windows 8 one released sixteen months ago. In fact, both apps now seem to match up, which jives with the whole universal Windows apps model.
Perhaps even better than getting this official news app is that fact that it is stunning. Discovery News features some fantastic animations, smooth transitions, and it even leverages the universal Share picker for article sharing. Users can also toggle a light/dark mode for text in the articles. Here are some of the other features.
