The News You Care About

The Haystack TV app is all about providing users with the news they care about in a manner that is engaging, dynamic, and up-to-date. The app does all the legwork for you and finds the day's top trending news videos and then they will show up in your own news headline section. Don't worry, you won't be swamped with all kinds of videos you aren't even interested in because you can personalize the settings so that only the topics you care about will be displayed. This means you won’t have to wade through all the junk to get to the good stuff.

The app is free to use and requires iOS 7.0 or later. In its recent update there were some enhancements made specifically for those using the iPad. There were bug fixes and there is now the ability to stream the audio to your Bluetooth speakers. The app has a very impressive 4.5 out of five stars from users who have called it amazing, a great way to watch the news, and very easy to use.
