Staff App Pick: Discovery News

Each week, we bring you new app recommendations from our colleagues. This week’s Tuesday Staff App Pick comes from Jeff Meisner, Editor of The Fire Hose.


I’ve been a fanatical follower of the Discovery Channel for years, so when I heard there was a new Discovery News app for Windows, I rushed to download it to my Surface and my laptop.

The Discovery News app brings you stories and perspectives from a team of seasoned journalists dedicated to providing informative, interesting and visually rich articles, videos and photos that seek to explain our natural world.

New stories are added daily, covering a variety of topics, including earth, space, technology, animals, history and adventure, among others. The same goes for videos – you can watch episodes of DNews and get the lowdown every weekday from hosts Anthony Carboni, Laci Green and Trace Dominguez.

The app also gives you access to a vast catalog of stunning photo galleries. Finally, there’s the Discovernator: An endless supply of crazy, amazing facts so you can impress your friends with your vast knowledge of the natural world!

If you’re ready to explore, go download the Discovery News app from the Windows Store now! Excelsior!
