Great content, lousy app
This used to be a great app that I used every day. Each upgrade has gotten more buggy. Great content but the latest version has no sound and seems to drain my battery. I think i will use web version only.

In-your-face-ads are not acceptable!
Many of us like to be able to listen to the news while doing other things... And understand that ad revenue can keep your service going and make it free for us... And I have no problem with banner ads on the screen, and will cheerfully check out something if I ma interested... But... Now you are going to throw full-screen ads in our faces every couple news items?? Granted, one can touch the screen and hit a "done" button... However, the ad will come back 2 or 3 items later. It really goes beyond any acceptable behavior. Please drop this idea, or else you will find that many of us will soon get tired of this and delete the app and no longer avail ourselves of your news service. And it will be a shame, as your service is a good one, but we are all being ad-ed to death today, and it really is unprofessional. I've had to re-rate you down to 2 stars because of thisRethink this, please.

Newsy
That's it. You are getting too greedy with the ads. I quit, deleting. You were already too slow before the last upgrade.

I quit
I stuck it out as long as I could with the new format, but the bugs remain. I used to enjoy Newsy, but now it is Newsance. Tired of all the crashes. I quit.

Love this App!
So, the new update has some ads, so what? A business has to survive somehow, right? Anyways, the Newsy app is my one-stop destination for balanced news coverage. Plus, their videos are usually under two minutes so it's perfect for lunch breaks. I love their interface (remains me of Apple's cover flow design) and their playlist option is key when there's no wireless Internet. Keep it up Newsy!

I wish I didn't update
I really like Newsy so I was ok with advertisements popping up by themselves, but the app no longer buffers correctly, the play button always appears as pause, and sound disappeared halfway into a segment. I have the old version on my computer, and I will be downgrading on my iPad 2. My original rating was five stars.
