With the addition of iOS, Android and Amazon apps, we’re bringing the cross-platform nature of the new MSN full-circle.
The apps, newly available for download through respective app stores, let you customize and organize the information you want, according to your interests. Beautiful, immersive, and customized to work fluidly on each unique platform, the MSN apps feature an unprecedented breadth of content.

Using the MSN Sports app, you’ll see real-time game updates, follow schedules and standings and read the latest news across 200 leagues and thousands of teams. The MSN Money app gives you financial news and data, lets you create a Watchlist to track stocks, mutual funds and investment vehicles that you’re interested in, as well as provides you with tools and calculators to help you determine anything from a tip at dinner, to a mortgage estimate on a new home, or even retirement planning.
The MSN Health & Fitness app lets you track your diet and exercise, find workouts for your needs, and check symptoms for potential ailments. The MSN Food & Drink app brings you over 300,000 tasty recipes, letting you create collections of your favourites, as well as watch instructional videos and learn from world-famous chefs. Ah, and let’s not forget the extremely helpful wine guide, with over 1.5 million wine reviews.
