Just needs a couple of tweaks
I am glad that Newsy uses multiple sources in organizing their information, and cites these sources so that users can view the full context of the clips if they feel the need. The app is good (not great) because you can browse the headlines, adding articles you're interested in to a playlist; then hit "start playlist" to let it rip. -1 star because I cannot view/edit my playlist -1 star because I cannot skip over videos that I've already seen. Other Cons: * Posting to Facebook requires permissions I do not want to give out (why does it need a list of friends?) Essentially, if you can't get through your 37 item playlist in one sitting, you will have to re-start the entire playlist from the beginning, and manually adjust the slider to fast forward the articles you've already seen. Fix these things, and my vote for the next version will be a perfect 5

Wow my favorite news app!!
LOVE Newsy!! This is now one of my primary sources for news! I can quickly select the current news stories which appear interesting to me, which then builds my playlist. Then just hit play and I have my own daily news to watch while I'm at the kitchen table or when in the living room, just switch to AirPlay for news on my plasma big screen! Thanks Newsy!!!

Great alternative to The Daily and other paid news apps
NEWSY is the best News app for iPad that I have found. It gives you full screen video reports for news, politics, technology, business and more! You can easily scroll through the stoires and create a playlist or just play each one individually. It also gives an option to download the video to watch at a later time or just for reference and to post a comment. The reporters are articulate and not interested in inserting themselves into the story---they just give you the story, not their spin on it. Newsy is a great app to stay informed without spending your gas money.

Exactly what I want
With newspapers trying to find there place in electronic medium. An interactive and/or audio "read to me" consumption mechanism is what will ultimately get people such as myself to spend $ on new formats. I want more than just regurgitated newspapers on a tablet. I want to consume media while I do other things. Make it more accessible and convenient. I don't want to read everything manually. Use the technology people. Good job Newsy.
