Enjoy SuperSite Content on the Go with the Bing News App for Windows Phone 8

A new way to get Paul in your pocket

As you may know, Microsoft recently ported the Bing News app from Windows 8/RT to Windows Phone 8. One of the benefits of this app is that you can pin favorite news sources to your Start screen so that you can access them directly, using the app’s nice presentation to browse articles. And as with the Windows 8/RT version of the app, the Bing News app for Windows Phone 8 includes my site as a source for technology news.

I first wrote about this ability with the Bing News app for Windows 8/RT in Enjoy SuperSite Content in the Windows 8 News App! It works similarly in the Windows Phone 8 version of the app. (You can find out more about this app and the other new Bing apps for Windows Phone 8 in Windows Phone 8 App Picks: Bing Finance, News, Sports and Weather.)

To find Paul Thurrott’s SuperSite for Windows in the Bing News app for Windows Phone 8, launch the app and swipe over to the Sources view.

Then, tap the Search app bar button and use the search functionality to find my site. (Quickest way: Start typing thurr)

(If you don’t see it, you may need to change the region using the app bar button at the bottom.)

Then, tap my site tile in the results list. The site’s recent articles will load and display within the app.

From here, you can tap the Add app bar button to add this site to the list of sources that populates the News app. You can also tap the Pin app bar button to pin the site to your Start screen. The new tile will appear immediately at the bottom of the Start screen. From there, you can resize it or move it to a new location. (Windows Phone 8 doesn’t let you rename the tile as you can in Windows 8/RT.)
