Stories can be collected based on search terms, platform, or both. Only want to know what's going on with Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Windows Phone? Done! Want to get a sample of news for all platforms from only IGN and GameInformer? Easy. Stories are loaded in a preview consisting of a few paragraphs with an option to load the whole story, view on the original site, or post the story to Facebook or Twitter.
With so few decent news apps on Windows Phone and virtually no apps for gaming news, Gaming News Now has become an invaluable tool in getting my gaming news fix. It's a must have for any Windows Phone-owning gamer.
