You have to hand it to the people behind the Microsoft Garage team. They certainly know how to put out some pretty cool apps. Case in point, the Your News app, for Xbox One.
This app, has a really attractive UI, and reminds me of the USA Today app, for Xbox One, which also is video-focused. This approach makes sense, since you’re on a TV screen and who wants to go scrolling through news articles on their 50″ 4k?
Here’s how Your News is described (via their webpage):
Your News enables you to spend less time searching for news and more time watching it. It allows you to do this by letting you pick and choose topics that you care about from your favorite sources.
- Watch MSN-curated content
- Customize the app to pick topics you care about
- Watch news from a variety of sources that you trust
- Enjoy hours of endless video streams without touching the controller
You can read more about the app, and the team behind it, over at the Microsoft Garage site.
Then go download the app. I’m curious to hear what you guys think.
