Microdocumentary goes behind the scenes of News360 (Video)

One of our favorite go-to apps for Windows Phone might have to be News360. When it was first released we were extremely impressed, praising it as “The Wikipedia of news apps”. That affection only grew with its recent Mango-flavored update, and we’ve always been curious how the company pulled off such accurate aggregation across thousands of news sources with such ease.

In association with Microsoft BizSpark One, there’s a new ‘microdocumentary’ featuring a behind the scenes look at News360. They talk about the company’s successes, how they operate, and how Microsoft’s Azure platform makes their service possible, all in less than two minutes. It’s an interesting look into the development of a high profile app and one we recommend you watch after the jump.
