Today, Newsy unveiled version 3.0 of its iPad app – offering a remarkable experience with drastically faster loading times and all new features including single tap sharing, new news ticker and push notifications.
Recent winner of the Appy Award for ‘Best News App’ for the iPad, Newsy provides multisource news videos that highlight the key differences in reporting. Previous versions of its iPad, iPhone, and Android devices apps have been the highest rated video news apps available.
In addition to launching a new version of its iPad app, and updating its iPhone and Android apps, Newsy has rebranded the look of its videos and logo. The new interface of the iPad app is complemented by an entirely new aesthetic for Newsy videos.
“Newsy’s new iPad app delivers on speed, quality, ease of use, and sharing – further establishing Newsy’s position as an innovator in mobile video news,” explains Newsy President Jim Spencer. “The new version of the iPad app is based on our users’ feedback and will provide an exceptional environment to experience our content.”
The new version of the app is substantially faster – quick loading times make it easier than ever to watch several Newsy videos consecutively. Users can build a playlist, download videos to watch offline, share videos, leave comments and explore sources on an app that’s more reliable and responsive than ever before.
In addition, users can now share stories on Facebook with just a single tap while watching a video in landscape or portrait orientation. Users can Tweet Newsy videos with just one sign in as the iPad app now saves Twitter logins.
New push notifications alert users of the day’s most important stories without even having the app loaded – keeping users informed without leaving the lock screen. The new headline ticker offers breaking headlines from around the world – so users stay informed of the latest news without leaving the app.
Newsy has also updated its iPhone and Android apps to offer more videos and improved performance.
Partnered with the world-renowned Missouri School of Journalism, 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.
Newsy is a multisource video news service that analyzes the world’s news coverage – highlighting the key differences in reporting. Through short videos available on the web and mobile devices (iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry, Android-based smart phones and Intel Atom-powered netbooks), Newsy accelerates the understanding of how a news story is covered.
