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.

Offline reading

When in airplane mode or not connected to the Internet, the text of all articles loaded when you were connected last will be available for you to read. You can also save any article, video or photo for viewing later, just as you could in the last version of the Newsday app.

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?

I’ve been using an I pod and an I pad older models and never had a problem except slow loading. I updated to an I pad pro and an I pod 6th generation and the loading is instant . I’m an optimum triple play costumer so Newsday is offered free. I’m enjoying the app more than ever.

Newsday app


Where do I start? The app crashes, brings up wrong articles when you click them (sometimes) and now they deleted the comments section (sans for Facebook) probably because they were being shredded on a regular basis. They’re also super Bias, just like most news stations these days. Hence why my entire my family cancelled their subscriptions. Only reason I still go on the app is because it’s free with optimum, which is another atrociously performing company.
