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.

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).

Wish it had a "play all" option....

Guess i'm used to the Roku version, hit "play all" and plays all stories in a category chronologically. This allows me to walk away and watch and listen.

make videos trend more smoothly

Newsy is one of the Best News app I have ever come across, its really a catting edge app, the only down side of Newsy is the video trending, the pauses are too much, please you need to do more work on how your videos trend, make it play more continuously.

It's a Start

Poorly designed features compared to the Apple and Android versions. At least when the Android version used to work. This app takes F O R E V E R to load. Stories are all in predetermined categories. There is no way to choose what you see, unlike the Apple version. Even the Android version was much better until they updated it so the viewing image is too large for the screen thus preventing navigation. It's a good start. Now update the speed and features for 5 stars.

Great interface, and I LOVE that you can click on the sources listed on the sidebar on the right to go straight to them. Does take a while to start up.

Unbiased News Source!

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

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.
