    That app you are looking for is called Bing News

    If the Bing News tile is freezing in the Metro screen. Something is causing it to do so. Either too many active tiles are trying to update, which is causing your internet connection to choke, because it may not have enough bandwidth. Or you just need to decide which is more important.

    If you are not needing to know up to the date information. Leave it to the Home screen in the web browser. Metro tiles actually use more resources then what is available for the OS. You can though if you wish to do so. Download MetroMix & Start8 from stardock.com. Run the Metro tiles inside windows. You will find that you are using less resources to do so.

    Open the Windows Store and mouse to the top of the screen. You should then see "Account", click that and you should see a "My Apps" option. Apps that you have bought will be listed there.
