MSN UK has today announced a new iPad news app, which is available to iPad users in the UK. According to MSN, the app is designed to make it easy for you the reader to find the specific news that you want, with stories split into six main channels: News, Sport, Entertainment, Lifestyle, Cars and Video. A separate category, called Editorís Picks, focuses on what the editor considers to be the most interesting stories of the day. Basically the breakdown of each channelís content is pretty self-explanatory, sport on Sport, news on News, etc. Lifestyle is possibly the broadest and most all-encompassing category, including such wide-ranging subject matter as Tech & Gadgets, Food, Travel and Money. I would have thought Tech & Gadgets would have warranted an entire section of its own, but what do I know?! You can also search the app with Bing. It looks like a nice, well-laid-out app, but as The Verge points out in its article on the app, it is uncannily similar in layout to the very excellent Pulse News iPad app.
