Newsy Upgrades iPad App: Faster Loading Times, Push Notifications, One-Tap Sharing

News junkie? Smart enough to realize you should check multiple sources covering the same news item to absorb as much information about the topic at hand as you possible can? iPad owner, by any chance? If you’re like me and that results in three ‘checks’, you definitely need to give the new iPad app from Newsy a whirl.

A multi-source mobile video news provider, Newsy today debuts version 3.0 of its iPad application, which was first launched in April 2010.

The app, which I tested extensively yesterday, offers faster loading times and comes with a bunch of new features, including single tap Facebook sharing, the ability to create playlists and download videos, a refreshed news ticker and (long overdue) push notifications.

The company, which recently secured $1.5 million on top of the $2 million it raised last year, has also rebranded the look of its videos and logo.

Seriously, check it out, it’s a free app.
