Microsoft discontinues a number of MSN apps

Microsoft has confirmed it will be shutting down a number of MSN-branded apps (also once known as Bing apps) over the next few weeks and months.
Windows, iOS and Android users will soon receive notices that their MSN Health & Fitness, MSN Travel and MSN Food & Drink apps will be shutting down in the very near future.

Microsoft recently sold off its display ad business and sold its Bing map-data collection division to Uber, so it's clear that Microsoft is doing a bit of a cleanup of their non-essential businesses.

The company did confirm that its more popular MSN apps - News, Weather, Sports and Money - will continue to run and will actually be built for the upcoming Windows 10, as well.
