Microsoft releases SNIPP3T app; exclusive to iOS for now

Microsoft's Bing-powered SNIPP3T app has made it to the iTunes app store, making iOS the debut platform for this app.

Apple and Microsoft may be competitors in the smartphone space, but when it comes to app releases Apple has always enjoyed being a top priority for Microsoft apps, which has been proven yet again as Microsoft released the SNIPP3T Celebrity News app for the iPhone yesterday.

The SNIPP3T app provides users with all the celebrity news, trends, photos and videos using the power of Bing. Users can also get their favourite celebrities' social media interactions and subscribe to them through the app. A personalized news feed would be displayed to the user based on their selection.

Other features include celebrity profiles with detailed coverage, and the ability to comment on the news items in addition to the usual like or dislike responses. The application uses Facebook credentials to enable sharing, but isn't a mandatory requirement to use the rest of the functionality.

To grab the free app and get your dose of celebrity gossip, head on to the iTunes app store.
