Something, something, official apps. We love them and so do you. Earlier today we saw a host of apps from the Discovery network hit the Store. Not to be left behind, ABC has released an official app for the platform that you’re most likely reading this on. ABC News for Windows Phone. Details, screenshots, and more after the break.
Here in the US we’ve got a handful of major networks fighting for our eyeballs when it comes to news. Fox, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and more are the names that will come to mind for most people. So it’s a good day for anybody that likes to get info from ABC News and uses Windows Phone since we now have an official app. What do you get with it?
- Award-winning coverage in story, video and slideshow formats
- Live video and blogs for key events
- Trending stories to see what everyone is talking about
- Breaking news alerts
- Pin your favorite shows and sections for easy access: Good Morning America, World News, Nightline, 20/20 and This Week, U.S., International, Politics, Investigative, Health, Entertainment, Money, Technology, Sports and Travel
- Tap & Share or use SMS, Facebook, Twitter or email
Pardon the cliché when it comes to describing good Windows Phone apps, but ABC News really is fast and fluid. We didn’t notice any stutter or lag when playing videos or navigating through the app. There’s plenty of content as well. Whether you want to stick to political news or the latest in pop culture, this app has it all.
The app is ad-supported and free, but only available on Windows Phone 8. As far as availability, we aren’t sure if this is a US-only app or available to our brothers and sisters around the planet. Let us know below. Either way, you can download ABC News for Windows Phone here, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
Thanks for the tip Kurt!
