USA Today: one of the best news apps on Windows Phone 7

USA Today (Free) [Best Rated]
More and more big name-apps are showing up on WP7, this is again a sign of a healthy marketplace and a growing interest for Windows Phone – especially now that Mango features are considered to take WP7 at the level of iOS and Android.

These are not our words, but USA today’s analysis of the latest announcements around the next version of Windows Phone. The same USA Today released in May a gorgeous news app, with great Metro-based user interface and snappy experience.

The app is what you expect: USA Today news are on the home screen, where you can see the top article with a picture and the others with just the headline. Tap on an article and you go see the details. You can share the article on email, sms and social networks (Twitter and Facebook). Nothing fancy. BUT FAST! And to the point: the app is there to provide news, not bells and whistles.

On the home page a weather icon on the top right sends you to a detailed page with info coming from Again: fast and to the point: current conditions, 5 days forecast and radar. What you want, now.

Back to the home screen all the colored sections of the national paper (News, Money, Sports, Life and so on) together with a picture section. All is beautiful (thanks to the great Metro integration) and snappy.

This is a gorgeous app. It rivals our preferred news apps News 360 and Drudgeraptor.

Technically, USA Today is one of the best app on the marketplace, avoid it only if you don’t like the content – otherwise just tap on the icon below, it’s free!
