Easy to Use
The enhanced interface allows easy swiping to find your favorite articles and renders perfectly whether you prefer landscape or portrait orientation. Easily update the content by pulling down the homepage grid for quick refresh to get more of your favorite articles.
No Web Connection, No Problem: Take MSN Content with You
Enjoy your content on the go, even when you are not near a wireless connection with offline mode. Simply enable offline mode from the arrow on the top right of the menu bar to access MSN anytime, anywhere. If you're looking to engage more deeply, Bing is built in so you can easily search the web for more content that interests you.
Easily share interesting stories with friends on Facebook and Twitter, or email a link for their enjoyment. Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger are easily accessed for your convenience so you can connect all the products that matter to you.
Circle and Search with Lasso
Today, it can be somewhat painful to search on a tablet. With that in mind, we’ve included a feature we call Lasso that lets you circle and search in just two steps. Find a word or phrase that you want to know more about, just hold the left or right margin with your thumb while you circle the word or phrase and MSN for iPad will launch a search in Bing.
Swipe-Through Slideshows and Photo Galleries
Photo galleries and slideshows come alive in the MSN interface, and all of the video content selected by our editors for your enjoyment is formatted to play just for iPad.
The MSN for iPad App is available today in in the US. It was previously available for users in Canada, Germany, France and the UK.
