newsy journalists make this app my single favorite place to get news

i have a lot of different news apps, but many require too much interaction, others like npr can tend to feel stuffy and is majority text based except for the audio hourly reports.

i like Newsy for their humor, mix of subject matter, and most of all the personalities that i've come to rely on every morning with my coffee and breakfast.

the app doesnt require a lot of effort to find and view/listen to news which is more like a tv, you'd hate to watch tv if you had to pick and choose and change channels constantly, after every break...

A Three minute advertisement

I mean it's not even just a little ridiculous it's so beyond ridiculous I can't even begin to comprehend how to say it... this was my favorite application I used it multiple times a day I loved this application and now there's some advertisement with a woman singing , i'm not curious to find out what it is, it's very annoying and The delete application button is very close....X!

Playback issues still not fixed...

Love the continuous live stream, but wish it worked in the background so I can do others things on my tablet, and also turn off the display to save battery life. Also still not very easy to use with no gesture controls.
