It seems Microsoft is beginning to reestablish itself in all industries in order to prove to those who believe the company’s best days are behind them that they are still a dominant force, following the launch of it MSN app on the Xbox 360 and now the launch of its MSN iPad app.
For those you that are aware of the Xbox 360 MSN app, the iPad version offers the same exclusive content as that and the new look MSN UK. It allows simple and free access to the live site on the go. The content available is easily navigated and includes a selection of cars, entertainment, lifestyle, sports and news coverage. The experience is further enhanced with the addition of an Editor’s Pick section and video channel access.
Other features include access to Bing internet search and users’ Messenger and Hotmail accounts are just a click away within the app. MSN Executive Producer Peter Clifton revealed what the company’s aim is saying ‘We want to provide our audience with the content they want, whenever they want it and on whatever device they choose.’ As the app was already available on PC, mobiles and the Xbox, he added ‘creating an iPad app was the next natural step.’
One of the main attractions to an app like this is aimed at commuters who are unable to access internet all the time. As T3 explains with this app internet access is not necessarily needed as users can download all the content into an offline format before they leave allowing them to catch up with it at a later time when they are unable to get online.
