Columbia, MO - October 15, 2009 -- Newsy.com's multi-source video news app currently is ranked #6 on the list of free apps in the News category in the iTunes App Store. Since Apple featured the Newsy app in its 'New and Noteworthy' section in the App Store on Monday, the Newsy app has climbed the rankings - passing several established news brands.
"We're thrilled about Newsy's ascension up the list of free news apps - it's affirmation that Newsy.com is ahead of the trends for news and news delivery," explains Newsy.com President Jim Spencer.
Clearly, the Newsy app is meeting demand for news content on mobile devices - the number of Americans using mobile devices to access news doubled from 2008 to 22.4 million, according to comScore.
The launch of Newsy.com this past year was remarkably timed with several important trends, including: 1) the growing perception of a bias in the news (and therefore a need for multi-source news) and 2) the increasing demand for online video.
