euronews claims to be the most-watched news channel in Europe. They cover world news and broadcasts in various languages 24 hours a day. Their official app has been available on Android and iOS, but Windows Phone users are no longer left out. The official app has just been released at the Windows Phone Store.
Head past the break to watch our hands on video and walkthrough.
Select one of the eleven languages when you open the application for the first time. The top two stories are shown right away with more on the right screen. Just swipe.
Click on a title to read a story. Just like the Sky News app, euronews uses white text on dark background. Every story has a video that stays above the article even when you scroll. We like this implementation because it enables us to read while the video is playing. You can watch the videos in full screen by turning your phone sideways.
Comments are not enabled, but there’s a simple reaction section where readers vote on whether the news is good or bad. Results are shown after voting.
In addition to international, economic, cultural and scientific news, the euronews application also provides documentaries and magazine videos on demand.
We think the best feature on euronews is the language support. The articles are displayed in your preferred language and the videos are narrated in your language as well.
We like the initial version of euronews for Windows Phone. It will get even better. Over the coming months, euronews promises to offer more programs and features, including live streaming of Euronews TV, bookmarks for your favorite stories, and a search engine. Arabic and Persian languages are also on the way.
euronews is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!
Thanks for the tip, David B.S.!
