USA Today hits the Marketplace

The USA Today app is now available over at the Windows Phone Marketplace. It brings the latest news stories, sports scores and weather to your Windows Phone in a nice, clean looking package.

Key features include:

  • Headline News: Browse and read stories from News, Money, Sports, Life, Tech and Travel. Stories can be shared via email, text message, Twitter, or Facebook.
  • Sports Scores: Review the latest sports scores for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, college football and college basketball. Filter college scores down to your favorite conferences.
  • Weather: Get live weather conditions (provided by AccuWeather), up-to-the minute personal radar and the five day forecast at your current location, or for a set of your favorite locations. Review national weather maps including Doppler radar, temperature and precipitation forecasts. USA Today will also utilize your phone's location services to show your current weather on the front page.
  • Pictures: Flip through the day’s best photos from news, sports, celebrities, science, travel and weather or play them back as a slideshow. Share your favorite photo galleries with friends via email.

You also have a featured called USA TODAY Snapshots where you can scan through USA TODAY Snapshots, and vote on a poll question for each. Settings are simple in that you can turn on/off location services and adjust the articles font sizes.

In just tinkering with the USA Today app for a short period, it makes a nice first impression. The app puts a lot of information at your finger tips. USA Today is a free app and you can find it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

Tip of the hat to Derek for tipping us on this!

Nice effort on USA Today's part. The UI incorporates Metro and stays faithful to the general "UI" of the newspaper itself. Not sure I need another weather app, but I like the use of color photos in the news sections.

wetworker says:

Great app. I just think they should have use some icons in the section part of the app and not the plain text. and get rid of the Colorful Story Ahead banner. 8/10

Well done news app. A perfect example of why a company would want to build an app, rather than rely on a mobile-version of their web site.
