Microsoft launches MSN UK for iPad

Microsoft has launched another app for the iPad, this time it is MSN UK. MSN UK is brings all the latest news, sport and entertainment from the UK right to your iPad.

  • Reading articles on MSN for iPad feels natural, no matter how you hold your iPad – in either portrait or landscape modes. We’ve added popular photo galleries, slideshows and videos to add depth to what you’re browsing. You can even download stories to your iPad for when you’re not connected to a network later. Need to dig deeper on something you just read? We’ve built Bing right into the top of the app for easy searching.

Unfortunately, the app has been launched with a bug which Microsoft promises to fix in a future update; it is specific to iOS 5 users only.

If the iPad’s Auto-Lock is set to 2 or 5 minutes, the downloading of an issue of MSN for offline viewing may be interrupted when the iPad locks the screen. You may see the dialog box showing that the download is in progress, but the background downloading of the issue may have stopped. Tap Cancel to close the dialog box. You may need to close and restart the app to resume the offline download.

The free app is available exclusively in the UK and it is for the iPad only.

I can not get it to start, and only the engine is warrantied, so the factory authorized service guy says it might cost me to get it fixed. The mower starts, and dies right away. If I could adjust the throttle, I could fix it, but I see no adjustment.
