Discovery News comes to Windows and Windows Phone

Discovery News comes to Windows and Windows Phone

The team behind the Discovery Channel have brought a news app to Windows and Windows Phone, fittingly called Discovery News.  There are dozens of news apps in the Store, so what makes this one different?

Discovery News is all about curated content, and seems geared toward topics viewers of the TV show would enjoy.  It aims for “a primary focus on explaining the world through a lens of curiosity,” according to the app description, so the app allows the user to drill down into specific categories, such as tech, space, history, and animals.  And if you’re just curious for neat little facts, there’s the “Discovernator” feature that serves up just that.

It’s clear that the developers took care to create a good experience, too; each category can be pinned as a Live Tile, animations are smooth and playful, and viewing options include text sizes and a light or dark mode.  All in all, it’s a high quality app.  Let us know what you think in the comment section!
