    Haystack TV Local & World News's review

    Published: 2014-05-12, by .

    Haystack lays out a new way to watch TV News

    • Accessible layout
    • Chromecast support
    • Sources
    • Ease of use
    • Can't switch between categories (apply category filter)
    • It should include a watch-it-later queue

    "Your personal anchorman"

    If you are fond of video news but love the immediacy and the trendiness of the Internet, Haystack might a perfect choice for you. It picks the most trending news video and puts it together on its accessible and personalized news video channel. You can either watch news on your mobile device or on your TV through Chromecast.

    At first launch, Haystack asks you to select your favorite categories (technology, business, entertainment, gaming...), but it gets smarter everyday as you keep faving news. You can share any video on your social network or cast it to your Chromecast.

    There's something missing though: the chance to switch between categories. A Holo-style layout would make the latter way easier to do from the swipable left-side menu. Likewise, it would be great to bookmark or send videos to a watch-it-later queue. That would be especially useful for Chromecast watching.

    Regardless, due to its sources, Chromecast support and accessible layout, Haystack TV News is definitely a worth to consider TV news feed.
