Official NBC News comes to Windows Phone 8

NBC News for Windows Phone SC

The official apps just keep rolling in. Today the official NBC News app has arrived for Windows Phone 8. NBC News is one of the leading places for national and worldwide news coverage. It’s a great addition to the Windows Phone app portfolio.

The NBC News app is much more than just a news reader. They really did a great job at making the app specifically for Windows Phone 8. The app has voice commands for going directly to certain sections such as “Tech and Science” or the video section. You can pin the sections to your Start screen for quick access, and they support the double wide size. NBC News also has lockscreen integration. It can display photos from the news as your background. If reading articles is too much work for you the app can even read them back aloud.

We love when official apps come to Windows Phone, especially when they embrace the platform like NBC News has. It’s a very solid app for any news buffs out there. You can get it in the Windows Phone Store for free for Windows Phone 8 devices.
