Microsoft's MSN suite of apps are now available on iPhone and iPad

Microsoft has today launched newly rebranded mobile apps for iOS and Android. The company overhauled the MSN portal a few months ago, refreshing apps available on its Windows Phone platform. Rebranded apps include MSN News, Sports, Health & Fitness, Food & Drink and Money, most of which are available to download for both the iPhone and iPad.

The apps also sport synchronization across platforms, making it possible to pick up from where you left off on a Windows Phone or Android smartphone. Microsoft has upped its software offering on competitor platforms in recent months, offering consumers on other platforms the opportunity to utilize available services.

As lightly touched on above, it's worth noting that MSN Weather is not yet available for iOS, but Microsoft states this version of the app is due in the coming months.
