Thumbs up Newsy - 06-19-2011, 01:55 AM

"Newsy" is currently featured on the Market.

It is, as the name implies, a video news app, with a difference.

I tried it last night, and it seems to deliver the same news from multi sources.

At first you see a string of sort of floating pictures, touch one and it spins around and gives you a news profile, and if you are interested, you can watch videos about it hosted by a sort of anchor woman.

The videos are not high resolution, so you save bandwidth.

Apparently the App. won an award for Best New News App.

It does seem a bit America oriented rather than world oriented - which is sad.

Multiple sources. The real story.• Winner of the 2011 Appy Award for best News App
• TechCrunch: “A must-download.”
• VentureBeat: “Newsy’s mobile video news analysis seems the smartest about journalism’s newest medium.”
• ReadWriteWeb: “Be sure to check out if you have an iPad.”
Promising to make you smarter, faster, Newsy delivers context with convenience to keep you informed on the world’s news stories. Through short videos, Newsy accelerates your understanding of a news story by analyzing perspectives from multiple sources.
A news analyzer, not an aggregator, Newsy is the only video news app producing daily videos that highlight the nuances in reporting. News sources are abundant yet redundant – you need a resource that provides meaningful insight into the news. and Newsy’s iPad and iPhone apps offer just that by analyzing and presenting the world’s news coverage.
Download the free app for short, informative video news on the go.
