    Cubic News, a great new app.


    Hi guys,

    I wasn't entirely sure this was the proper place to say this, so if its not, I apologize in advance.
    Several partners and I have just finished developing a new app and we wanted input from anyone willing. This includes advice and tips for improvement as well recommendations on how to generate buzz.

    We strive to make Cubic News a free Windows 8 app that provides breath-taking news of the highest quality along with images of similar quality. Major themes and topics include but not limited to financial news, sports news, global news and tech news. It features three ideal settings for delivering content and allows the user to swiftly look through breaking news or to slowly peruse topics.

    We decided to not use the standard pre packaged layouts because we found them rather tawdry and overused, so we decided to make our own interface with different transitions.

    We have made sweeping new updates to the app. We have increased the both the frame rate of transitions and made design changes to improve the look of the interface. We are currently working to get a license with Reuters to improve the news quality and we are working on various improvements to include personalization. The new release is now available to download and as always free.

    Great idea. An app that might be useful. Thanks. Will try it next time I can bring myself to boot into 8.
