Newser App Optimized for Windows Phone 8

February 7, 2013 1 Comment


Newser has dubbed their updated app for Windows Phone “Our best app to date”.

Check out the features…

The Newser Windows Phone app includes these unique features specific to the Windows Phone 8 platform:

  • Enhanced tiles: Users can resize the Newser tiles to any of 3 sizes.  Counts of the number of unread stories are shown in addition to the headline of the most recent story if the tile is sized to the new wide size.
  • Lock screen integration: Newser can show you the number of unread stories and the latest headline on your lock screen.  Additionally, you can let Newser update your lock screen wallpaper
  • Voice commands: Users can press and hold the start button and give Newser voice commands, such as “Newser start” to launch the app, “Newser (section name)” to launch the app and navigate to a section grid or “Newser search” to trigger the search feature. The app will ask what the user wants to search for and then show the results
  • Text-to-speech: On the story page you can tap the ‘Read this story to me’ button and Newser will read the story to you!

Other features include:

  • Graphical quick view of current headlines.
  • Alternate views of the news (by date, popularity, section, importance, etc.).
  • Media galleries, including pinch and zoom of images.
  • Notifications of breaking news.  Toast notifications immediately inform you of important news stories.
  • Social sharing of stories via Facebook, Twitter email, and text messages.
  • Easy tools for commenting on stories.
