Sky News

The official Sky News app has been updated to take advantage of features available in Windows Phone 8, including Live Tiles and lockscreen support. The new functionality enables fans of the media service to not only have more convenient access on their Start Screen, but to also have their lockscreen image and content altered by the app.

As well as new Live Tile sizes (you can now pin a wide Sky News tile), the development team has also added support for Live Tiles to display latest stories pulled down by the app itself. It's a neat little update to bring Sky News up-to-date with other news solutions available on the Windows Phone Store. Check out the app if you're a frequent reader.
