Used to be a 5
Takes too long for new news lately. That old saying " no news is good news" is wrong.

What's the matter???
I loved this app. But since it last up dated it is now FROZEN !!! I don't think this should be happening every time you update it. Please fix this BUG so I can again enjoy this wonderful app. HURRY!!!!!!!

Great interaction for our family
Everyone in our family loves Newsy. We watch a news item of approx. 2-3 minutes long and then we have a family discussion before going on to the next news item. This is a great fun family activity each evening. Each of us gets to pick a news item to watch. We can now watch the news at our convenience and not be locked into one network an evening.

Missing the boat as a news app aggregator
The creators either developed an app for kids wanting to get into the news business, or a platform to show - "yes, we can code for the iPad!" They succeeded in developing a wiz-bang sexy app, and you should download (and then delete) to see the seeds of a good idea. But as a serious news aggregator? Completely misses the boat. I don't know the team who assembled this app, so I'm not out to get them with what I'm about to say. I might even contact them for some apps that I have in mind. I do hope they read what I have to say and perhaps redo this mess, for they are making the same mistakes that a lot of green decision makers execute while dabbling in the news business. #1. News is not Entertainment Tonight. I want to be informed, not entertained by bubble headed bleach blondes with witty repartee. Get to the point, it would be better to do the lead in - if needed at all - with bullet graphics, and shorten your segments, edit the content from your providers. Get rid of all your USC grads looking for an on air job. Some might have a shot at the local in Yakima, WA. #2. If you are covering the news, give your users an option to get what is really important. Too few choices cluttered with topics like "No iPhone 5 at the WWC blah-blah.". Give your users what would be relevant at the top. Hire a content editor to stack what is truly important in your first "segment." Let them dig down to find the crap if you - "Newsy" - want to be relevant. #3. If you wish to write news copy, get some writers that are journalists who can write. Let me dumb that down for you. Want to write news? Hire news writers. Maybe I missed the point. Maybe I'm not your target audience. The idea is good - but it is obviously driven by the consultants who destroyed the local news business and is now hacking away at the network news business. Make sure you have what the people NEED TO KNOW to make informed decisions in their life's. There are lots of places to kill time and numb your mind. I wouldn't even come here to accomplish that task - it's not intelligent enough to be entertaining.
