What's New in Version 2.1.1
Fixes crash on launch for some iPhone 4s users.
Adds ability to view transcript in portrait orientation by tapping button next to headline below video.
Fixes some inconsistent sharing behavior.
I've been a longtime fan of Newsy. It's my favorite medium for keeping up with the news. One of the few news outlets it seems that tries to give a balanced perspective.
I love the autoplay feature of this new app. I just really wish there was a way to watch older stories. If you miss a few days... Tough luck. You can only watch the most recent content.
One thing I've been dying to see with this app: a "watch later" playlist that you can add stories to, and then watch all at once, skipping stories you're not that interested in.
Bring back the transcripts!!
Newsy is part of my morning routine and I can barely live without it. The best feature was the transcript feature which allowed you to watch videos with the transcript displayed in landscape view, but now it's gone!! Why?? You can now only view the transcript in portrait view but can't see the video at the same time. I wish I never updated to this latest version. Please bring the transcripts in landscape view back!
So far I'm liking this app! I love how there is a video for the stories. Just one thing that could change is maybe an easier way to seeing the categories, like maybe swiping!
