The free app became available in the Windows Store on Oct. 25 and will go live on Oct. 26.
Like the ABC News app for iPad, the ABC News Windows 8 app features a wide variety of video, news stories and content that is tailored to different needs of users throughout the day, with AM, midday and evening editions. While the AM edition includes more stories and articles, the app's evening edition focuses primarily on videos and picture slideshows, the news organization noted in announcing the app.
It will also feature some exclusive digital sections and features that are only available on the Windows 8 app. These include a lifestyle and fun section, a trending stories area and additional content for specific times of the day.
"ABC News continues to evolve and adapt to consumer demands in this ever-changing digital age," said Doug Vance, VP of product development in a statement. "The ABC News Windows 8 app offers the same customized, personal news experience already available on iPad and Android devices. We are extending the reach of ABC News and have made our content even more accessible to a new and growing digital audience."
