Microsoft's first party apps currently going under the MSN banner were previously carried under the Bing name. Weather, Money, News, Health & Fitness, Sports, Travel and Food & Drink cover off daily news from those different areas of life on both Windows and Windows Phone.

The universal apps will carry on into Windows 10 and have recently been updated with an all new design replacing the visuals and introducing vertical scrolling in place of horizontal.

Microsoft also makes its MSN apps available cross platform, with versions available for both Android and iOS.
