  • Butterfly logo

    By slimpicken
    I liked the old butterfly msn logo better
  • How do I block Fox Fake News?

  • Best so far (for me)

    By Skablaw
    I’ve tried all of the news apps and this one fits the bill for me, personally. The content feeds aren’t psychic - there’s still junk of no interest to me that pops up, but far less so than with Google’s app (which I desperately wanted to love). I find this interface cleaner and it suits the iPhone SE’s smaller screen better than other news apps I’ve used. Given that this is the same engine and leverages the same account as your Windows 10 login you also get a clean, consistent app experience on all of your devices, whereas Google and Apple have no Microsoft Store apps for their versions (understandably) and Google and Apple don’t have apps for their competitor’s mobile platform (also, understandably). Microsoft is the Switzerland of news apps it seems. Hurray, platform agnosticism!
  • MSN

    By heidi1414
    Old app was easier to read, navigate and follow. This is a hot mess.
  • Used to be decent.

    By 0101101z
    The rebranded app now has a big, clunky look, ads masquerading as stories, and the mix of stories I am shown is different— trashy, somehow. MSFT needs to let me choose sources, not subject areas. They have lost me as a user.
  • Way too many sponsored adds

    By HarleyRiderAZ
    Liked the old one, way to many sponsored adds, switching to apple news...
  • Solid update

    By Rwh3rd
    Nice update. It’s smoother and better looking as well as easier to navigate. Additionally there is more control over your content favorites so you don’t need to look hard to find news that interests you.
  • Too much political bias to be taken seriously

    By allnicknamesaretaken846362729
    The look and feel is great. I expected a properly curated app where you can read unbiased and balanced articles about politics. Turns out it’s just another heavily anti presidential sensationalism hub. Truly disappointed, to be honest. I’ll keep searching for the news app that provides balanced coverage.
  • Sponsored stories ruined it

    By MattyKMan
    This used to be MSN News. Basic but functional and free of sponsored stories. Now it looks more like Apple News but the sponsored stories ruin it. I’m switching to Apple News I guess.
  • Behind The Curve

    By Ejaazi
    Microsoft is always behind the curve. The UI is better, but unlike Apple and Google, Microsoft does not let you choose your sources. Big mistake.....
