    "News your way"

    Newsy is a new way to broadcast news. In fact, a way adapted to the video streaming era. The guys at do a great job curating news from difference sources and editing them into 1-2 minutes videos that highlight all the relevant info related to the topic. In addition, these videos are accessible from multiple channels: website, Youtube, Roku and, of course, mobile platforms, which allows you to keep up-to-date with the topics you care about.

    Newsy is an excellent an innovative service that makes the most of current technology to fulfilling a basic user need: keeping in the know. It provides curated pills of information in 2-min length videos with its transcriptions below (which can also be a good way to improve your English skills).

    Newsy's home highlights "most recent stories" but you can browse through its different categories: technology, business, entertainment, politics, sports... You can also search by keyword. In addition, you can create a daily playlist of video news you want to watch and make any of them available offline.

    Of course, any article/video can be shared using any of the apps installed on our device.

    Despite its originality and cross-platform nature, there's still room for the mobile version to improve in regards of design and performance. It doesn't run as smooth as it should and its interface doesn't look and feel as intuitive and modern as other news apps.

    Regardless, Newsy lays out an innovative, handy and comfortable way to stay in the loop. Isn't that what we all News-junkies like most?

    More central than fox or cnn... the way news should be. The videos are actually news videos not what you see on CNN that you have to read or has nothing to do with the story. Hope Newsy continues to state both sides and would like to be able to turn my phone to see the video full screen.

    I stream on Roku. If you want to see the same stories week after week after week, then this is the place for you. Apparently not enough news to produce new stories. Not that that should be a problem within our great nation. Gonna HAVE to look for something else. Uninstall while you still can.
