The built in news app in Windows is a well designed and a nice way of catching up on the latest news. This morning I got an update to the app and it has some nice improvements including new navigation controls, videos and offline reading.

Hopefully Microsoft can keep improving the built in Windows 8/RT apps, the mail app in particular needs some work.

Release notes

Key updates to this release of the News app include:
· Improved navigation
· Additional news content, including content partner panoramas
· Enhancements to article reader (font customisation, zoom, pagination, inline media, text selection)
· Video
· Slideshows
· Improved offline reading
· Performance enhancements
· Note: Some features and enhancements may not be available in all markets
