Defining the future of mobile video news with new app for new device

Newsy iPad App, Version 3.2

The 'Watch Offline' feature makes Newsy the only news app that allows users to watch videos when they do not have an Internet connection.

Today, Newsy unveiled a new version of its iPad app — offering all new features including category-based push notifications, an improved user interface, enhanced AirPlay features and a new ‘Watch Offline’ feature. Newsy is also debuting an app for the Kindle Fire and a new version of its popular iPhone app.

Winner of the 2011 Appy Award for best news app, the Newsy iPad app, version 3.2, offers new category push notifications that update users about their favorite types of stories without having the app loaded — keeping users informed without leaving the lock screen.  Newsy’s AirPlay feature has been upgraded to include transcripts and comments in full screen, creating a more engaging experience.

The ‘Watch Offline’ feature makes Newsy the only news app that allows users to watch videos when they do not have an Internet connection — users can download videos to view later. The new version of the app offers drastically faster loading times — making it easier than ever to watch several Newsy videos consecutively.

Newsy provides multisource news videos that highlight the key differences in reporting. Previous versions of its iPad, iPhone and Android apps have been the highest rated video news apps available.

The Newsy app is now available on the Kindle Fire — it can be downloaded from the Amazon Appstore for free. Designed to take advantage of the Kindle Fire’s 7-inch color touch screen, the app delivers Newsy’s unique multisource video news in an intuitive and user-friendly environment.

Newsy’s updated iPhone app, version 1.8, offers an improved interface.

“We are committed to delivering users the best in mobile videos news regardless of the device they are on,” explains Newsy President Jim Spencer. “Newsy’s unique multisource videos change the way people consume news — helping them make sense of what can be an overload of news information.”

Newsy is the go-to news app for on-the-go news users. In 2-minute videos, users understand the differences in coverage from media outlets from around the world as well as discover new sources they would not have found on their own.
