Curioser and curioser? Grab the Discovery News app for Windows 8!

Discovery News

Discovery Channel needs no introduction but deserves all the lofty praises. From the people who bring you the Discovery Channel, Discovery News is a collective effort of a team of experienced journalists dedicated to bring stories and perspectives we don't find anywhere else.

The Discovery News app for Windows 8 is a brilliant app that aims to satisfy your curiosity about the world by bringing news and videos in categories such as Earth, Space, Tech, Animals, History, Human, and Adventure. The app also features daily ‘DNews’ episodes or you can swipe through a vast catalog of stunning photo galleries.

The app includes an interesting section – Discovernator – that helps you discover crazy, amazing facts that you can add to your repository of random knowledge and impress your friends.

Discovery News

The app is beautifully designed, and has an intuitive and interesting user experience. A neat footer specifies and recommends stuff similar to what you are reading or watching. You can pin individual articles, photo galleries, or videos to Start screen as well. The app allows you to choose from seven quality options while watching videos so that you can choose one according to the available bandwidth.

If you are curious about the world and prefer reading brain-enriching content, Discovery News app is a great app to have. A neat interface adds to its appeal. It’s free and updated with news and videos daily, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give it a try. Download the app from the Windows Store here.

The Discovery News app joins the Windows Phone 8 Discovery Channel app released last June,  making science and learning on both platforms easy as can be.
