    Quick question does anyone know of any good news apps with live tiles. I got the Samsung Now Now-news tile pinned to my start screen but I find myself looking for more. Plus my sis cant get the Now app cause she got the quantum. So any suggestions?

    sidenote: Weather not needed.

    BBC News Mobile is an excellent news app, you can add various feeds to it too, it has a live tile as well.

    It's my fave news app.

    Only negative is that some news sections that feature a slideshow or selection of Photo's don't show in it.

    Give it a try and see what you think d03jke :)

    I like USA today as well palandri, it's excellent, but a little US news biased. (Not sure why) :D

    I should also mention that USA Today does run in the background. I am sure it is to keep the live tile updated with the latest news.

    I have Fox News pinned. Does it only show about 1 major story per day or is there a setting to adjust that? On the live tile, I mean.

    I use USA Today, but lately the live tile has been acting up. I does the weather flip whether (pun not intended) I have it enabled or disabled. I don't want it because I am already using WeatherLive. Other than that, it's a fine app.
