Microsoft has a new iOS app called News Pro in the App Store.

The app description says:

News Pro helps you search for news around your work every day. Fuel your unique interests with over a million topics to choose from. Get informed efficiently by locating the most important and relevant articles each day based off what interests you. Leverage the power of social networks for your daily news. You can sign-in on Facebook and LinkedIn to tailor your daily news highlights to your work experience and interests.

Find articles and topics you didn't know you needed. News Pro allows you to extend the scope of your daily news updates by suggesting new topics to search based off your current interests and by helping you discover websites where you can read articles that are interesting to you. You can also search for news related to any topic right in the app so you can always be fully informed.

Here are the screenshots:






We haven't seen an official announcement from the company, but the app was first reported on by Microsoft News, which says the app is powered by Bing News and comes from Microsoft Garage.
