News coverage is right in the palm of your hand. With the click of a single button, users have access to local news on the go. The new application for Newsday has a feature that allows its viewers to share late-breaking news on social networking sites. Within seconds, news stories can be shared on facebook and retweeted to followers on twitter. This is valuable to Newsday because they no longer have to solely rely on their efforts to spread the news, their committed readers are now able to share breaking stories, weather alerts and more to thousands instantly.

This application is available for free on iTunes and is compatible with the iPad and iPod Touch. For iPhone users, it requires the 0S3.2 version or later.. Therefore, if you don’t have time to login to your computer before work or school but want to be kept abreast of the latest news, weather and traffic information, this iPad application just might be for you.
