Thumbs up MSNBC.COM app. - 04-24-2011, 04:57 AM

Everyone likes to keep up with the latest news, don't they? Well, they should!

Whilst commuting you could watch the latest news on my favourite app. "Al Jazeera" HD, - but quite often the ISP doesn't seem to have the resources to run it without freeze ups.

When it runs, it is very impressive, - but currently seems to be only featuring news about the Middle East uprisings.

But a good alternative that seems more likely to work most of the time is MSNBC.

It is quite different from Al Jazzera's live news desk style news, as it is printed news, with pictures and in most cases a video for each item. You select want you want.

But when you play a video, at the end, it tells you what the next video is about, and you just press the ghosted play button.

The emblem of MSNBC is a peacock, and each segment of the peacock's tail, gives different types of news from various programs. So, good selction too.

As you will see, users give it a 5 star rating. That's why I downloaded it, and can attest, the video features are good.

Just one slight drawback, the app, does not feature landscape rotate, or print enlargement, but the videos are landscape. So you do have to twist the device to normal landscape for videos.

Pop-Sci and Motor Trend are other great apps. from Zumobi and they also don't have print enlargement or landscape twist. offers the latest breaking news delivered direct to your smartphone.Drawing on its award-winning original journalism, NBC News heritage, trusted sources and Microsoft’s advanced technologies, presents compelling, diverse and engaging articles and videos for your smartphone. The apps notifications deliver the latest breaking news as it happens.
Search Zumobi for more great apps.

You will like MSNBC!
