    "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?

    This app doesn't work when connected to the Google Chromecast. It freezes, crashes, and repeat the videos during playback. I've contacted tech support several times with no response.

    App does not work work when connected to Bluetooth car radio, seems intentional as it was the same with my Pixel XL, Nexus 6, and Note 7

    This app is just good enough to make you really want it to work. Instead it stalls and freezes the phone and just frustrates you.

    It includes captions in its videos...a must for me.

    Great content but playback super glitchy on my venue 7. I'd pay for a version that worked though - they do excellent, succinct reporting.
