Explore the universe with Discovery News on your Lumia

Dig deep into the mysteries of the world and beyond with the Discovery News app for Windows Phone.

Did you know that astronauts in space can see 16 sunrises and 16 sunsets every day? Or that the moon has enough water to fulfill Seattle’s water needs for three years?

Read about these and other interesting facts, stories and information with the free Discovery News app on your Lumia.

“Discovery Channel” on your Lumia

Uncover the science behind the headlines and satiate your curiosity with articles curated from the Discovery Channel. Read news, watch videos and see photos from categories such as Earth, space, tech, animals, history, human, and adventure. 

Well-organized design

The app has a smooth interface and a stunning layout and is daily with the latest stories and videos. Also, watch episodes of DNews to get your daily fix of incredible facts. Each story features a collection of photos from “related photo gallery.” 


The app also lets you choose your background theme: light or dark mode (just like your Lumia) and accordingly inverts the text color in the articles. 

Rise of “Discovernator”

Impress your friends or turn a boring office meeting fun by sharing crazy and obscure facts with the app’s “Discovernator” feature and wow everyone with your knowledge!

For example: “Ninety-seven percent of all U.S. money contains traces of cocaine,” and “Pink is not an actual color! It is white light without the color green.”

I just tapped the “More Please!” button and here’s what I learned from the “Discovernator”:

“A bee must visit 4,000 flowers in order to make one tablespoon of honey.”
