Newsy merges video and online stories to quickly give you the news [Video Reviews]

Not everyone wants to read through a mountain of RSS feeds to find out what’s happening in the world, but that doesn’t mean those people want to go to traditional media and watch several minutes of a CNN broadcast. Newsy exists as a comfortable medium for people who want to watch the news but get it quickly and succinctly.

Newsy is like a blog aggregator that delivers news drawn from several sources. The app features several videos with clips from news broadcasts and commentary from trusted print or online sources. If a story breaks on NYTimes.com about Google TV, Newsy has an anchor quickly summarize the basics of that article, as well as some important commentary or additional context found on other sites.

The visual quality and news content of Newsy makes this an appealing app. It is a great way to quickly be updated on interesting stories. The app is available for free in the Android Market.
