Microsoft has released a new, extremely good looking application for iPhone called Snipp3t. The name doesn't say much, but this is no productivity tool, no game. No, what this is, is a celebrity news application. From Microsoft. Perhaps not the first developer you'd go to for such a thing but it's here and for what it is it looks really nice. Well, it looks really nice so long as you're in the U.S. and can download it, at least.

SNIPP3T (pronounced "Snippet") is a Celebrity News app that snips everything you want to know about your favorite celebrities from all over the web and puts it in one place.

  • Subscribe to your favorite celebrity with one click, and the hottest stories about them will show up in your personalized stream of headlines.
  • Tap on a celebrity to view their detailed profiles and explore a timeline of news stories surrounding them. You can also tap into a news story to get all relevant story content (news articles, photos, videos, and social mentions) in one place.
  • Share your thoughts about the latest news with other fans of your favorite celebrities.

It leverages the power of Bing to keep you in the know with all the news about the Justin Biebers and the Katy Perrys of this world. And with the friends feature you'll be able to hook up in cyberspace with your fellow fans and get chatting away about, well, celebrity things.

It's free to download, so if it's your sort of thing hit the App Store link below and get crackin'!
