The Metro Bing News app

The Metro Bing News app brings a visual punch to everything it covers. Over the weekend, the top story featured a great shot of the President, which you can see replicated on the Metro Start screen in the preceding slide. The downside? There’s so much visual punch, there isn’t much room left for the news. (Click to enlarge.)

This is the main Metro Bing News app screen, viewed at the new Metro standard 1366 x 768 pixels. You can see one story, with edges of two more on the right. Scroll to the right, and you can see six more tiles with six associated news stories. Keep this slide in mind when you look at the next one.
