The MSN apps can be already downloaded from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, Windows and Windows Phone Stores, as well as the Amazon App Store.

Microsoft's MSN apps for Windows and Windows Phone are now taking a natural step forward and hit the other popular platforms in use today - all iOS and Android devices, as well as Amazon's Kindle Fire and Fire Phone. According to the official news article, "Earlier this fall we unveiled a new MSN that was built from the ground up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. With the addition of iOS, Android and Amazon apps, we’re bringing the new MSN to even more people around the world."

The list of MSN apps includes the following: MSN News, MSN Sports, MSN Money, MSN Health & Fitness, MSN Food & Drink, and MSN Weather. All these apps sync their data with the user's Microsoft Account so one can easily switch from one device to another without any worries. The apps look similar no matter the platform they use, but some have platform-specific features - for example, MSN Health & Fitness can use Apple HealthKit platform on an iPhone to count steps.

While all the apps mentioned above are already available in Windows, Google Play, and Amazon's app store, MSN Weather is the only one not available yet for Apple devices. The official post about this says Weather will hit iOS "in the next few months" and nothing more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
