Personalized alerts

Now you can choose the types of alerts you want to receive, such as breaking news, sports, business, opinion, weather and traffic with an easy to use preference center. Alerts will also open specific stories now rather than just sending you to the top stories section.

Interactive weather map

Our new weather map can be easily customized to show you a variety of weather conditions on Long Island and around the world. It also has a future cast that shows you what the next six hours look like and lets you easily track rain, snow and storms. You can save up to 10 locations for quick reference.

Interactive traffic map

Our new traffic map lets you see up-to-the-minute traffic conditions, plus you can use it to find the fastest route between any two locations in New York and New Jersey. You can save your favorite routes and see live traffic cameras, gas stations and any traffic jams along the way. You can also report traffic accidents or construction you see to share with other drivers.

Section swipe and customized navigation

Now you can easily swipe left and right from section to section rather than having to open them individually through the navigation menu. Our redesigned navigation also lets you customize which sections you want to see and the order you see them in. You can also customize sections for news and information in your community.

Sports scores

You can now view full stats from all of your favorite pro sports teams on the scores pages, and see all upcoming games.

Newsday close to its low point...

Print versions of daily newspapers are in decline and hurting financially around the world with almost no exceptions. Even the NYT, by far the best newspaper in the US, misses the income it once derived from large display advertisements.

I’ve read Newsday for about 60 years. Today it has sunk to an all-time low. It chronicles auto accidents, small crime, and political corruption like nobody’s business, but what a bad source of news it has become! I just read a long article about how some rich hockey team owner who was sentenced to 20 years in prision will have his sentence revisited because an appeals court ruled that he was represented by “ineffective counsel”. His current attorney who won the review, the appellate court judge, and even the now deceased original sentencing judge were all named. Everybody but the “ineffective counsel”! It immediately struck me as a payoff to keep that attorney’s name out of the newspaper. Corruption is so prevalent and long established on LI that I doubt a single reader will complain. It’s what people have come to expect of Newsday.

App worked great until now

I've been subscribed to Newsday for a few years and the app worked great until just a few days ago. Not sure if the company pushed out an update, but now it logs me out at the end of each day, and I have to log back in daily. Last thing I need to do is remember another password. It's not like this is a secure bank account where it needs that level of security. And none of my other news apps (eg ny times which I also subscribe to, daily news, Huff post) make me login daily.

Given the fierce competition for eyeballs, is this how they punish subscribing customers? I want to be able to easily consume my news content every day, and they just made it much more of a chore.

There's no where in the app to ask to save the password, what changed and why?

Buy Newsday every day when home. Don't get home delivery for security reasons. Could always check up on news when traveling. Now not possible. Understand newspapers' need for revenue from content but seems some condensed version could be free to all. That is what the New York Times does. The problem is the ownership. They have always tried to use power to get what they want. E.g. They won't let the channels that carry Islander games be available in HD if you are a Fios subscriber. Old man Dolan was greedy and smart. The son is just greedy. Enough said.

Would now rate it OK. I now can get it on line since I am an Optimum customer. Biggest issue now is that it tends to crash a lot.
