What's New in Version 2.2.5
- Bug Fixes
Still the best news team out there
I appreciate the Newsy team's approach to the news, they are a breath of very needed fresh air. The changes to the app, in my option, are a great start. Yes, the app is still glitchy and it crashes but given feedback and time I believe they'll get it worked out.
I gave them four stars only because of app issues. Newsy, with its fresh faces, informal format, beats anything you would watch on bought and sold and "I have you in my pocket" television news outlets.
As far as commercials, necessary evil if you want to stay in business. However, I agree they need to not drive us crazy running the same one every three minutes.
Good Content but Annoying Ads
Newsy has great content and provides a nice high level overview of what is going on in the news. However, with their recent addition if video ads, even when you're at work trying to read the news scripts, you still have to click on the story, it defaults to playing the video, then you have to click yet again to get to the script. There needs to be an option to take you right into the scripts if you can't watch videos due to your environment. Not to mention that even when you click on the script, it triggers a video ad to play about once out of every 3 stories and it's the same ad over and over again!
Ok but getting worse over time
Ads cause the app to stop displaying video and only play sound in iOS until you get out of the video and back in. I absolutely hate the articles with words and gaming music background. Love the coverage in real stories but the new iOS app makes me search for articles by category and only has the top few in the Top Stories. Would like a category like we had in the old days where it listed them newest to oldest stories.
I still use the app with these glitches but do get annoyed with some of the changes.
