Looks like another big name app has made it to the Marketplace. The USA Today official app is now available, for free of course.
The latest news stories, sports scores, weather and photos you’ve come to expect from USA TODAY are now available for your Windows Phone. Staying informed on the go has never been this quick, easy or enjoyable. Headlines – Browse and read stories from News, Money, Sports, Life, Tech and Travel. Stories can be shared via email, text message, Twitter, or Facebook. Scores – Review the latest sports scores for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, college football and college basketball. Filter college scores down to your favorite conferences. Weather – Get live weather conditions, up-to-the minute personal radar and the five day forecast at your current location, or for a set of your favorite locations. Review national weather maps including Doppler radar, temperature and precipitation forecasts. Pictures – Flip through the day’s best photos from news, sports, celebrities, science, travel and weather or play them back as a slideshow. Share your favorite photo galleries with friends via email. USA TODAY Snapshots – Scan through USA TODAY Snapshots, and vote on a poll question for each. Review responses from all users.
Just like the print edition, the app looks bright and colorful. I use a couple RSS readers for most of my phone news but may have to download this one. You can find it here in Marketplace.
