Microsoft Launches ‘News Pro’ for iOS to Compete with Apple News

Microsoft has launched News Pro for iOS along with a companion web version, in what looks to be their foray into the news game, to compete with Apple News (Canadians: what the heck is Apple News?) and more.

Find articles and topics you didn’t know you needed. News Pro allows you to extend the scope of your daily news updates by suggesting new topics to search based off your current interests and by helping you discover websites where you can read articles that are interesting to you. You can also search for news related to any topic right in the app so you can always be fully informed.

News Pro—dubbed “your work news brief”—is powered by Bing News and is a Microsoft Garage project, from the same team that introduced to experimental apps like Send and Tossup. All you have to do is connect your Facebook, LinkedIn or both to the app to see a customized news feed, consisting of major news headlines.

If you’re looking for yet another news app, this might worth checking out.
