Improved Navigation

Whether you’re looking for the latest Hollywood news or want to watch that video your friend told you about, all you have to do is swipe or tap through the new navigation bar. The top MSN categories - news, sports, entertainment, lifestyle, videos, money and autos are easy to access on your phone.



At a glance, you’ll be able to see the top news stories, current weather or check out your horoscope. We’ll also display the latest sports headlines and scores.  No more digging through menus or multiple screens.



Watching Videos and Reading Articles

One of the best things about having a smartphone is the large screen. MSN Mobile has optimized our videos, articles and photo galleries to display nicely on your mobile device. Tap an article from our Entertainment or Lifestyle channels and we’ll display the mobile optimized version. Videos will play in both portrait and landscape. Want a larger view? Just hold your phone sideways to get the full picture.


Money and Quotes

Wondering how your 401(k) is doing or if the Dow or NASDAQ is up or down? Just scroll down to the new Money & Quotes section and you’ll see the top market indices displayed in-line with the news. To the right of the S&P index, you’ll see a new button that will allow you to add your own stocks and track them right on MSN Mobile’s home screen.
