News 24/7 Stream app review: live video and audio news

Reviews

Introduction

There are plenty of news apps available for the iPhone and iPad, most of which bring news in the form of text. If you're looking for a way to stay up to date on the latest news, then News 24/7 Stream is an app that you might want to check out.

Although there are already plenty of news sources present in the app by default, such as NPR, NBC, Reuters, CNet, and more, users can also add their own choice of news channel.

This app can be found in the News section of the App Store, where it can be purchased for the small price of 99 cents, taking up just 16.4 MB of space on your iDevice.

Five News Channels

News 24/7 Stream features five categories of news "channels", which are organized into playlists. These categories include General News, Business, Sports, Tech, and Travel.

Each of these playlists can also be modified, allowing you to add your preferred news source. Alternatively, users can also use the "favorite" playlist to stream other news channels and check them out before modifying a preset playlist.
