Although I can't honestly say it's my first source of news, MSN remains a top destination for many and now Microsoft has brought their MSN app to BlackBerry 10. Overall, it's a pretty basic app but Microsoft has added some features to the mix to adapt it to the BlackBerry 10 platform a bit. If you're not really into loading up your browser to hit MSN each time, here's what you can expect from the app.

  • MSN's Top Channels: News, Sport, Entertainment, Lifestyle - optimized for touch
  • MSN's News channel brings you the latest stories locally and from around the world, enhanced by vivid photo galleries that capture the moment
  • Swipe to view top stories in each channel - Keep up with breaking news in the world of football, UFC, Formula 1 and more
  • Take a quick glance at current weather conditions
  • One tap to view your Outlook inbox (once you're logged in)
  • Want to share that great cat video? Just tap and share via SMS, email or on your social networks 

If you're looking to get in on MSN, you'll find it live on BlackBerry World right now for the BlackBerry Z10 and the BlackBerry Q10. The BlackBerry Q5 is oddly left off the list but I'm guessing that will be added later given there is no difference between that and the Q10 version. Someone just forgot to tick off that little box that says it's ok to run on the Q5.
