    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anybody has a favorite news app that shows headlines in the live tile. I like what the 4x4 BBC Mobile does (side note, tho: I wish I could pin a section other than "Home" to my start screen, like World news, since I'm not in the UK and the world stuff is what I have the app for). For those not familiar, it shows the top headline and then flips over and shows the #2 headline.

    I have a few live tiles pinned that show news-related photos, like USA Today and Weave. I also have the CNN app pinned in the large format so I can see their top headline.

    Pics are fine, but I value being able to see the top news at a glance without having to open the app. Any fine apps like that you'd recommend?

    I'd started a similar thread some time ago.

    I've seen the live tile preview of the upcoming WPCentral app for WP8 and Jay has done a fabulous job with the live tiles.

    I am sure other devs will soon follow suit.

    Edit: Not sure why the WPCentral app won't show the first URL in the 'links' section.

    Thanks! And oops, sorry to cover similar ground. I really like the look of that WPCentral preview.
