Fluff news with enormous amounts of Ir-relevant ads. Not a solid news platform. It is more like a tabloid you would get at the supermarket.

Needs a setting for either videos to not autoplay or barring that, for them to always start muted. Tried to give that feedback through the app but the feedback function is broken. In fact the app has not been updated since 10/21, so it appears it may be abandoned by the developers

I always love newsy I used it when I was going to school I'm on medical leave right now because I had to leave because someone threatened me all this couple years ago but more important part is this is how you're not biased non-biased that girl in class with an undergrad and graduate this is how I think her name was last name was white and it's not by it's not at a Delphi it's Mike Spencer

A Refreshingly type of news channel. Very seldom do you get an obvious slant in the way a story is presented.

It's refreshing to read news that aren't filled with biased views. Quick question though: Big fan of your documentary content in desktop. Any plans to make them available on the mobile app?

Commercial on free TV was biased; insinuating water pipes are dangerous so I am removing the app. The particulates?! Wrong topic for scare tactics. Your point is NULL and VOID. Leave nature positive.

Only one thing wrong. You open an article and start reading without the sound and when the video ends it jumps to the next article before you finish. You have to continuously pause the videos before you start reading.

so far so good but the reporters need to stop referring to January 6 as an insurrection when it was a peaceful protest of Trump supporters 🙄. Pelosi called in Antifa and BLM to SABATOGE President Trump! get it straight! Makes you sound ignorant!!

If Newsy wants to be considered "real news"? With everything going on in the world. Surely you can find something better then Cory Booker breaks up with girlfriend. For news breaks on Pluto TV. Also the news break hasn't changed in days. So much for "timely" news breaks.

For a small app with limited content, Newsy is quick and easy when time is short. It is very non-partisan too, which is really important. No fake news here!

Newsy is more and more just another regular news outlet. They used to be special. They used to give you the freedom to select which story you want to hear. Now it is LIVE news that just feeds you whatever it wants. Such a shame. They had a unique place in their own market and blew it. There is really no difference now and turning on Newsy versus any other live news channel app just sucks. Lost my freedom to choose what I watch. Lost the the old Newsy.

Closest thing I've found to nonbiased news. Other outlets are shameless in pushing whatever their agenda is: for Newsy, the agenda is foresight and common sense.

This app only lets you open what is displayed in the opening window. Do a search and results are listed but when you try to open any it kicks you out of the app.

Newsy leans towards very predictable liberal one-sided reporting with their posture almost always favoring a typically Democrat liberal view which gets them to be, predictably boring. Usually when the story starts out that way I just cut it short and move on to the next story that I might have an interest in. In short it has a great platform for news of Interest , but in most cases not worth viewing.

Needs a lot of work. The only customization settings are for notifications. No dark mode, no way to dismiss or exclude certain news categories. Within one minute of install, the app crashed while performing a search. Installed on an S21 Ultra. Uninstalled.

Love the show on TV but for some reason my Pixel 2xl phone won't let me view anything or contact NEWSY. Wouldn't be surprised if it was just another effort to keep people from finding the TRUTH. The 1 star is for Google that says I'm not connected to a data plan. Complete BS. If it's on NEWSY's part, please update so I can access on my phone.

After install it said it was for an older android. It starts up but won't play anything selected just a blank screen and gets stuck there, have to force close it. Looks like Newsy app needs to be updated to catch up to the newer version android. Best to stay with an news app that has an active developer. No sense keeping it installed. It was last updated 4 years ago. What a shame.

The app itself isn't 100% bad, but casting to my TV from the app rarely works and it's frustrated me to the point where I may just uninstall it. The share button also doesn't use Android's built in share function where you could share to anywhere, it only can share to Facebook, Twitter, and Email.

Newsy claims to be unbiased, but it is as leftwing unbiased and "trustworthy" as CNN. Garbage. If you like pro-commie/pro-socialist viewpoints, then Newsy is for you. For a somewhat center print news source, check out Newsvoice.

This app, even upon first installation, states its an older version and to check for an update (this isn't one I can find). After installation, while playing a video, will time itself out and phone goes black. There needs to be an update for this to work correctly. Big fan of Newsy, not so much for this app.

It makes you stare at Trump's face all day. The top story is pinned to the top. That top story often had Trump's face. You can't get rid of the top story by scrolling. 1/3 of the screen is always taken up by the top story. Pathetic

Newsy delivers news casts without the facial expressions, vocal cues or out right editorial comments that are used by the local broadcasters and the national televised "news" outlets to influence their vewing audience's opinions to theirs. In essence, Newsy delivers the news with strict journalistic integrity. 'Just the facts Ma'am, just the facts' as Joe Friday use to say.

At first I thought this app didn't work with Chromecast but I realize now the Chromecast icon will show up AFTER commencing playback of an article. I'm very happy to see that, even as a video app, it connects to all my Chromecast Audio devices too which is excellent for listening to Newsy throughout the house. The continuous play doesn't work though so I'm knocking off two stars. Solid news without the gimmicky theatrics and ugly biases makes this a winner.

I had Newsy installed a couple of years ago and it was flawless then something happened. I've installed it periodically since then and newsy does the same thing stops running every time I run it and it freezes all the time. I wiped my phone to factory settings to eliminate a conflict with newsy and it still stops running all the time and freezes solid. I have to remove the battery and restart it to get it to do anything. Galaxy note 3. UPDATE!! now a year or so later and a new phone and a android TV box and same old story. I reinstalled app and couldn't get through 1 story and it froze up my phone. same thing on the TV box. This app is just crap.

This app continuously crashes and hangs. There is no way to download then use that you can watch it when you don't have an internet connection. It seems like newsy went backwards with this app. Things were so much better when you could just put in an RSS feed into your podcasting app of choice and get all the news. This changes really made me rethink if I even want to watch newsy news every morning you to the difficulties in using this app.

The news content is unbiased, interesting, high quality, and sometimes funny. But the app with I view it on sucks. Videos won't finish, the app crashes, and you can't skip to another part of the video without breaking the whole thing! I wish it simply used the phones native video player instead the home-made unstable thing it does use. Better off just watching on the website.

They not only propagate fake news they also create it. A few days ago I watched one of THEIR OWN videos and they listed legitimate news sites as fake. Well done guys.

I have the newsy app on my roku. At first I thought I had found a app that was unbiased and would provide some truth. But I have found that you DO take sides, and you DO try to influence the people and how we feel instead of just reporting the truth and letting us make up our own mind, and like all the rest, you DO contribute to racial issue by keeping them very much alive with your reports. Not only that but 90% of what you report comes from other news stations, which is called plagerism where I come from.

I have used this app daily for several years it is always been the perfect app for me after 1 update about a year ago the first time I click on any video it force closes aside from that no problem. For cheaper end smart phones try optimizing the video load more. Video clips often force close I believe due to load times. My device times out I believe.

April 2015, the new update fixed the notifications issue, but now it crashes. Feb 2015, please allow us to disable notifications or at least only send 1 icon to notification bar. There are too many! Sept 2013, update was an improvement visually but it lags much more. Love the continuous play but hate the fact that there is a way to skip articles.

All videos skip maybe a second around the ten second mark. Sometimes the fist five seconds plays over and over and over without me touching the app. Strangely, commercials play flawlessly. This app promises to occasionally send notifications about my interests, but I seem to get them about every twenty minutes. That is excessive. I liked this news group on my Roku, but the apps have always been unusable. I gave this a week, and I'm uninstalling again.

I used to like the app because I could sit down and pick a few news articles and watch what I'd like quickly. Recently the app has added a forced advertisement that you have to watch before starting each video which would not be such a terrible thing if the advertisement we're not the same advertisement every single time you play a video. I watched 6 videos and each video had the same advertisement at the beginning and it was long boring and made the app completely useless and wasting my time to watch an ad

Newsy, cudos for monetizing the app. I don't mind that at all, but getting yelled at (i.e the commercials) for 30 seconds between every 2 minute story is ridiculous.

When I'm home on WiFi, I get notifications, I select them, app opens, & video plays. Any videos I select in the app play too. When I'm not home on mobile data, I get notifications, I select them, the app opens, & force closes. Same issue if I open the app to select a story. I would like an option to not automatically play the video while I read the video details. I'm rarely able to have the sound on to listen to the video. Most of the videos are just words over pics, so I'm required to read it anyway.

News aggregation and data analysis are great, but the app is quite prone to to crash in the middle of a story on Chromecast and just on its own. Stories will also get stuck in an endless loop but never finish at times. They will get about 10 seconds in and start over. I use Newsy a lot on Roku. It should be a market leader for news aggregation and analysis.
