Windows 8 apps: News Bento
Whatever your view on the introduction of the Windows 8 Modern interface is, there’s no doubt that its apps can look fantastic, and News Bento is a perfect example.
Launch the app and a group of tiles show you constantly-updating news photos and headlines from top US sites. A host of others are available via the “more news” link, and Google Reader support combined with RSS search provides easy access to your other online favourites.
Choose a source and story summaries are neatly displayed in various panels. And most conveniently, clicking any of these (for the sources bundled with the program, anyway) displays its content within the app, so there’s no irritating switching to and from an external browser.
