Who doesn’t like great iPad apps? At iPad Insight we definitely do. With that in mind, we offer up a quick review of an excellent iPad app, or a few great iPad apps, here each week.
Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday. Check out all out picks below and you’ll soon have a collection of stellar apps for your favorite tablet.
This week’s pick is 5 new (free) MSN apps for iPad and iOS – MSN Sports, MSN News, MSN Health & Fitness, MSN Money, and MSN Food & Drink.
It’s great to see Microsoft accelerating its efforts to bring more of its software to iOS (and Android too with these 5 new apps) – and these look like quite good little free apps.
I’ve installed 3 of the new MSN apps already – the 3 that are of most interest to me. MSN Sports, MSN News, and MSN Health & Fitness.
The MSN Sports app offers a simple layout that’s easy to navigate – with main sections for sports news, scoreboards, a Today featured area. It lets you choose favorite teams to follow and add sports to follow. That last item is crucial to making this a very good app. By default the app focuses on US only sports, but you can add a number of international sports – from rugby and cricket to top European football (soccer) leagues to tennis and Formula 1.
I’ve got a number of health and workout apps on my iPad, and the MSN Health & Fitness app is a good addition to my growing collection. It’s got diet and cardio trackers and great looking set of workouts and exercise guides – including yoga and pilates.
MSN News brings what is says on the box – another news source for the iPad, with coverage of US, World, Politics, Technology, Money, Entertainment, and more topics.
Here are App Store links for each of these new MSN apps – all of them are free and do not include any In-App purchases, and are universal apps designed to run on both iPad and iPhone.
