NDTV introduces an all-new app for Windows Phone

NDTV is one of the top broadcasting television networks in India. Founded in 1988, the broadcaster has three national news channels - NDTV 24x7 (English), NDTV India (Hindi) and NDTV Profit (Business news), along with several online properties. While NDTV has had an official Windows Phone app since long, it wasn't the best they could do. It was packed with comprehensive features of course, but an overall rating of 3.4 on Windows Store is a validation that it wasn't received well by Windows Phone users.

But the next leap is surprising. The latest update to the Windows Phone app completely revamps the apps in UI as well as functionality. Essentially, It's a dumbed down version of the older app, and takes away almost all the features making it not simple, but almost useless.
