Hardly do I read the morning's news than a fresh batch of breaking news comes through. I'm not saying I like to read depressing monotony on the economy or on unspeakable crimes, but I do like to know what's going on in our country and worldwide. Instead of having to read yet another news source line by line, I can now enjoy Newsy which contains short videos and promotes understanding what is really going on in the news by analyzing perspectives from multiple sources. Newsy is the only video news service churning out daily videos that highlight the undertones and subtleties of things you may not read about otherwise. Some of the enlightening features of Newsy are as follows:

- Real-time access to the most recent videos on Newsy.com
- Interact with the Newsy community by posting comments and rating videos
- Share videos via Twitter, Facebook and email
- View video transcripts that contain links to news sources
- ‘Sources’ button connects you to the story-level pages of the sources analyzed
- Slideshow feature enables quick browsing through videos
- Extensive search feature allows you to find videos by keyword
- Access higher quality videos when connected through WiFi

Open this app and scroll through the carousel of specially selected videos. Each has a caption underneath to summarize what it features. When you select one, simply tap the Play button and the video starts. You can Share the videos with friends on Twitter, Facebook or by e-mail, read or make Comments about it, check the Sources for the video, and my favorite feature - Get a Transcript of what you have just watched. Newsy is so simple to use and contains relevant news and interesting viewer comments. When you watch this great news app, you experience short, informative video news that is easy to process and takes just minutes to watch.
