The Windows Phone version of the Bing News app seems unable to find RSS feeds when I search for them using the RSS URL. When I type the RSS URL in the Sources search field, I get a message that it can't be found. When I search for the same RSS URL in the Windows 8 Bing News app on my computer, it finds the feed and I'm able to add it as a source. I tried several times in the Windows Phone app, making sure I typed the URL correctly, but the app just can't find it. But the Windows 8 Bing News app can. Anyone else experiencing this? Does the Windows Phone app just not have the capability to find RSS feeds using the URL? Am I doing something wrong?

Have you tried any specific RSS feed apps? I'm not sure if Bing News supports RSS URLs. This thread lists a number of different apps.

No, I haven't tried any specific RSS feed apps. Thanks for the link. The Windows 8/RT version of Bing News does support RSS URLs, so I thought the Windows Phone version of the app did as well, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Perhaps they'll add that feature in a future update.
