Review MSN News

Brandon Girod
8.0Excellent
Good app design, intuitive interface, has several customization features
Omits comments from articles
MSN News - Breaking Headlines for Android is a simple mobile app for its desktop site. This particular app only contains news stories, however. Any human interest pieces or anything of the like was actually released as a separate app, which I found to be a bit interesting.
The app is divided into several categories, as you would expect. It defaults to an aggregation of the top stories currently on the site, but there are plenty of other categories. You’ll find US news, world news, crime, offbeat, technology, politics, entertainment, money, sports, etc. From anywhere on the app you can search, customize which categories are shown to you, and sort them just about anyway you want.
Stories open fairly quickly and everything renders well. You have a few options here, but not many. You can share an article, and you can adjust the spacing, font style, and the size of the font, but that’s about all you can do. There are no comments to be found, but if you’ve ever tried reading the comments on a new site then you probably know that’s for the best.
You can log into a Microsoft account if you have one to integrate any options you have. Additional options include being able to change the edition you’re looking at. You can also customize your interests so you can follow the topics you’re most interested in.
MSN News - Breaking Headlines probably isn’t the most aptly named app, but it does what it’s supposed to do pretty well. Some people, not sure who, might miss the comment section, but I personally feel that it was omitted for the greater good. If you’re someone, like me, who prefers news aggregate sites, then this is obviously not going to be the news app for you.
