Our very first Featured app is the 2011 Appy Awards winner, and our personal favorite – Newsy for iPad. There are many other contenders in the world of news aggregation apps, but this one is very different and yet familiar at the same time. Like news analysis and clipping services in days of yore, Newsy takes a curated approach to presenting news videos on the iPad.
Topical reports from multiple news outlets are accessed and analyzed, compared and delivered in two-minute video segments. Users can filter videos and create personalized playlists, as well as rate, comment on and share videos via Twitter, Facebook and email, even access source links in transcripts. True to the app’s name, Newsy is not a new aggregator, but a news analyzer. Try Newsy now for free via App Store.
