Further enhancing the MSN on the move experience users are able to view the services video channel as well as an 'Editor's Picks' section of the top content.

“We want to bring our audience closer to the people and information that matters most to them,” said Peter Clifton, MSN's Executive Producer. “We want to provide our audience with the content they want, whenever they want it, and on the device they choose.”

He added: “MSN was already available on mobile, PC and Xbox 360 and so creating an iPad app was the next natural step.”

With one-click access to user's Hotmail and Messenger accounts as well as Bing internet searches from within the application the MSN UK iPad app is further bolstered by the ability to download all current content into an offline available format perfect for the morning commute.
