What’s new:

This app is a comprehensive update of the Newsday app with a whole new look and feel and many new or upgraded features that we hope you’ll enjoy.

Personalized alerts

Now you can choose the types of alerts you want to receive, such as breaking news, sports, business, opinion, weather and traffic with an easy to use preference center. Alerts will also open specific stories now rather than just sending you to the top stories section.

Interactive weather map

Our new weather map can be easily customized to show you a variety of weather conditions on Long Island and around the world. It also has a future cast that shows you what the next six hours look like and lets you easily track rain, snow and storms. You can save up to 10 locations for quick reference.

Interactive traffic map

Our new traffic map lets you see up-to-the-minute traffic conditions, plus you can use it to find the fastest route between any two locations in New York and New Jersey. You can save your favorite routes and see live traffic cameras, gas stations and any traffic jams along the way. You can also report traffic accidents or construction you see to share with other drivers.

Section swipe and customized navigation

Now you can easily swipe left and right from section to section rather than having to open them individually through the navigation menu. Our redesigned navigation also lets you customize which sections you want to see and the order you see them in. You can also customize sections for news and information in your community.

More content

Access puzzles and games, obituaries, classifieds and more of your favorite content from the Newsday website.

Newsday App Tips & Tricks

Newsday Reviews


Broken  ZxcvL  1 star

Newest update will not load at all. Also when go try to scroll up, if you move slightly left or right the page resets to top of the article you are reading, very frustrating. Will the developer please fix the fact that page resets every time you slide back to an article you started to read then either accidentally slide to next article or intentionally slide to next article. No other news app does that. I also find that Newsday has become increasingly negative in their journalism. Just state the facts I really don't care aboutbwhat the privileged Dolan's or their editors think about the topic. Also why is race always left out of criminal stories, police reports don't leave that out, I have to go to Patch to get clear concise facts! If I am to be called upon by your journalist to help or bolo a criminal, race and or color are very important factors in Id'ing a dangerous criminal.

Crash  JCLongIsland  1 star

Latest iOS 10.3.2 seems to have really broken app, crashes on startup, even after deleting then reinstalling. With 10.3.1 and earlier, Newsday widget wouldn't work most times, sometimes deleting then reloading application would address problem for a short period of time. Article comment didn't always load. Newsday subscribers deserve much better than this. Glad I'm not a "digital only" subscriber.

Cannot get this app to work and login....please update for compatibility with the latest iOS


Great app, doesn't work on 10.3.2  Snradio  1 star

Love this app, but since iOS update, the app crashes and won't open. Would be 4-5 stars otherwise.


Can you give zero stars?  PJSchu  1 star

This app is horrible. Reading the paper is free with optimum. Even at no cost it is not worth it. I have contacted the app tech team multiple times. Do they ever even try it themselves? It NEVER remembers where you left off, no matter what preference you select in settings. It crashes randomly, and frequently. Please god remove the temptation and stop giving free access so I can delete and move on. This app must be designed and maintained by chimpanzees.

Infested with Ads  Sblme03  1 star

Don't be fooled: the news here is sprinkled in between numerous advertisements. As a result, the app is sluggish because it's constantly loading ads. Requiring a paid membership to log in should remove, if not, limit this obnoxiousness


Old News  LngIndROn  1 star

Same stories , crashing same old app after latest update !!! Come on already !


Newsday dot com easier to use  Greg747  1 star

Odd, thought apps were supposed to make it easier than browsing website. This one is not. Biggest peeve is inability to 'Manage' my account; can't be done. Wasting time trying to find; it's not there; so I'll stick with


Doesn't work half the time  kristinawtf  1 star

The older version was much better. This version crashes a lot or doesn't even open. The wrong comments load or half the comments load or none at all. Not impressed at all

I pay for this version and I don't mind pages of ads, but placing ads on the bottom of the pages is extremely annoying! Please stop!


No Good  Crtrubia  1 star

This is an even worse version of an already unstable app. Try to comment and the whole app freezes. I thought Apple tested these apps. What a POS. DONT UPDATE.


If I could give app no stars I would  Newschik  1 star

Another update - another half -assed excuse for an app. Now the comments section locks up if you try and reply. Plus, the app runs the same inane story for days, like valedictorians of high schools. OMG. Crash after crash, freeze after freeze. Newsday App is horrible and has been for a while. Don't bother.


New version  Mikedm165  1 star

Keeps freezing and crashing can't download today's paper very frustrating!


Fan  Djsacks  5 star

I updated app today while in the city, was really pleased with the speed of the app, was able to Read article easily and had no crashing worked really well for me.


Newsday? Not today  C%M%  1 star

This is a paid monthly app... It rarely works. You click on the app and it flashes on the screen for 5 seconds and then it's gone. This happens day after day and week after week. What's going on Newsday?? Is this how you do business? This is extremely frustrating and the more it is updated, the more it happens. Fix it or stop charging your customers for what doesn't work!
