Good! Could use continuous play, better streaming.

I'm a big fan of the short, well-produced videos that Newsy offers. However, the app is lacking a bit in comparison to, say, Newsy's integration on Roku. I'd love to see continuous playback supported (so that I can view several news stories in a row without having to click one each) and better streaming options (so as to avoid buffering every few seconds).

I like to watch news while doing the dishes; wish you guys auto streamed videos or I could select several to watch at one time. thanks

Unbiased News Source!

It's great to have access to an unbiased source for news that just gives you the facts without spin.

So good but so bad.

I love Newsy content but the app sucks. The live tile doesn't work and it takes forever to open, plus you cannot navigate away from the app or it will close. PLEASE UPDATE!!!!

I have been using Newsy for a couple of years now on Android. They have done it well on Android. The set-up on Windows is going in the wrong direction. On the Android platform, they post the stories and they are set up in chronological order. This makes it much easier to watch them. The method that they post them on Windows means you have to go through each category and pick out what you have and have not seen. The smaller tiles also make it more difficult to see the full title of the story.

Great app and great news!

App has great content and looks like they have their own news...which is great too...Loved some breaking and tech news videos from them.

Way to go Newsy

Way to go Newsy. App delivers a great experience in the new Modern UI, while featuring the great content that we've come to expect from Newsy.

Multiple sources says it all

What could be more 'fair in impartial' than multiple sources for news? Furthermore, NEWSY is a nice ensemble of readers who have lots of fun. NEWSY is unique and all one could want in a news service.

Too much buffering

Most of the time the videos on the Windows 8 app are impossible to watch because of buffering. I opened the same site on Mozilla, played the same video, no buffering.
