What’s new:

This app is a comprehensive update of the Newsday app with a whole new look and feel and many new or upgraded features that we hope you’ll enjoy.

Personalized alerts

Now you can choose the types of alerts you want to receive, such as breaking news, sports, business, opinion, weather and traffic with an easy to use preference center. Alerts will also open specific stories now rather than just sending you to the top stories section.

Interactive weather map

Our new weather map can be easily customized to show you a variety of weather conditions on Long Island and around the world. It also has a future cast that shows you what the next six hours look like and lets you easily track rain, snow and storms. You can save up to 10 locations for quick reference.

Interactive traffic map

Our new traffic map lets you see up-to-the-minute traffic conditions, plus you can use it to find the fastest route between any two locations in New York and New Jersey. You can save your favorite routes and see live traffic cameras, gas stations and any traffic jams along the way. You can also report traffic accidents or construction you see to share with other drivers.

Section swipe and customized navigation

Now you can easily swipe left and right from section to section rather than having to open them individually through the navigation menu. Our redesigned navigation also lets you customize which sections you want to see and the order you see them in. You can also customize sections for news and information in your community.

    Can't believe how bad
    After just sitting here writing a long detailed review of how unhappy I am with this app and then hitting to submit, comes up with a message that the nickname has been used. Went to give new name and everything I wrote us lost. Only furthers the point of how bad this app is. The paper takes up too much storage space. Each time you open the paper, more space is taken. Eventually causes problems opening up searches on the internet. Paper doesn't always close correctly, so can't open the paper again. Have had to reboot the iPad to clear issues. To get the app to work half way decent, I delete and reaload app once a week. Should not have to. In the past few weeks I found that I download the paper and try to read it at work later, a message comes up that I must download content. I know that I downloaded the paper as I see the bar downloading and then get a message that download is complete. I see it in my saved editions. I am finding this frustrating as I download the paper before work since I don't have internet access. What good is downloading the paper if I can't read it.

    What are you doing?
    After not being updated in over a year, the Newsday app was finally updated. I hoped that the crashing issues would be fixed and that the app would run smoothly. After opening it and hitting the read the paper tab, I was greeted with the paper and brand new add banner at the bottom of the paper. Great! While trying to navigate the paper while avoiding the new ad banner I discovered that none of the crashing issues were addressed. The app still crashes numerous times while reading the paper, and is virtually unusable. Between accidentally hitting the banner ads at the bottom and crashing issues, this app should get 0 stars, but 1 is the minimum. Note to advertisers on this app: Do not advertise on this app, it is garbage. If I'm ever in the market for the product I see on Newsday, I will not buy it from your company, I will buy it from your competitor. Note to Newsday: Great update. You make more money with with more ads but continue to put out a product that stinks. Looking forward to next years update.

    Newest update will not load at all. Also when go try to scroll up, if you move slightly left or right the page resets to top of the article you are reading, very frustrating. Will the developer please fix the fact that page resets every time you slide back to an article you started to read then either accidentally slide to next article or intentionally slide to next article. No other news app does that. I also find that Newsday has become increasingly negative in their journalism. Just state the facts I really don't care aboutbwhat the privileged Dolan's or their editors think about the topic. Also why is race always left out of criminal stories, police reports don't leave that out, I have to go to Patch to get clear concise facts! If I am to be called upon by your journalist to help or bolo a criminal, race and or color are very important factors in Id'ing a dangerous criminal.
