Great idea for an app, but the stories are limited, on seemingly random topics, and the sources are very US-centric. Also no support for viewing video content outside the USA. I think the authors of the app should keep up the good work, but expand the app both in terms of content, and geographically.

Very balanced and informative. Amazingly good. Great for people with limited time. No problems on EVO 4G.

I love this news video app. It does a great job giving both sides of a story. The video streaming software works excellent, better than Youtube.

What a pleasant surprise. Informative, interesting, nice UI. Great for catching up with stories I missed. Smoother since the update.

Nice job at summarizing complex news. Perfect if you only want a brief summary. I like the way you can flip the video or read a transcript.

I love this app. The vids are from many sources, run flawlessly, and are updated daily. The name is a little goofy though.

I tried many news apps in the market, but none were for me....until I found "Newsy." News is seen through videos, not reading. Stories are brief.

On Vizio tablet can hear sound but video is blank.

That's RIGHT FoxNews isn't propoganda!! I reject the Lib/Cons paradigm but, forced to?..I'll go Lib. Way closer to life as it really IS. So: nice app!
