    The perfect news app... —Make Use Of

  • May 12, 2012
    Newser is a new app for WP7 Mango devices that shows the world how news apps should be made. Not only has it got an absolutely gorgeous interface, the way it presents news to its readers is quite unique as well. —Addictive Tips

  • Aug. 29, 2010
    So much is going on in the world, and we have less and less time to stay abreast. Instead of reading through long articles on a handful of news websites, check out Newser. —Blogger Review

  • Aug. 16, 2010
    Newser's website design is little more than a grid of boxes. The photos - and this fascinates me - are nothing but stock photos that have at best a casual relationship to the story they are summarizing. I mention this site because I am psychologically addicted to it. I feel a need to check it twenty times a day. WTF? —Scott Adams

  • July 18, 2010
    Newser summarizes news stories for people who do not want to struggle through a lengthy article in the New York Times but only want to know the gist of the article as summarized by an employee from Newser. —Blogger Review

  • July 18, 2010
    Newser has a motto: "Read Less. Know More." We like it. —Journal Star

  • June 29, 2010
    Newser is a news aggregator - there are many of them out there, but this one aggregated by “Latest”, “Popular” and “Pick a Date”. One of the problems with some news sources is they only report today’s news and you and you can’t go back in time to read an article of interest. —Seward Incorporated

  • May 29, 2010
    Newser, with its tag line “Read Less Know More,” has his eye right now. Its visual front page with photos and links to short videos and more stories engages Tippett. —Linda Solomon, The Vancouver Observer

    What more could you want out of a news website? It's just a great way for me to stay informed without having to weigh through pages upon pages of facts and quotes. —Rachel Sparks

  • Sep. 3, 2009
    Since the dawn of the Internet, news organizations have accepted the notion that the only way to survive the onslaught of the Web is to publish everything online, at no cost to readers, and let anyone in the world synopsize it, refer to it, and copy and link to it.—Daniel Lyons

  • Aug. 12, 2009
    [Mark] Cuban exhorted news sites to start blocking access to links to their content coming from aggregators…Here’s the key point for news orgs to grasp: The audience would NOT view Newser as the problem there. Newser has already provided value with the story summary—and they were trying to provide the audience with even more value through a direct link to the full story.—Amy Gahran

  • Aug. 8, 2009
    Rupert, you didn’t ask my opinion on this, but since when has that ever stopped me. First the good news. You can sell content on the internet. People pay for content on and off the internet every second of every day. It’s easy to do. If you do it right.—Mark Cuban

  • Aug. 2, 2009
    Take Newser.com, an “aggregator” of others' news reports…Competing with each other and newspapers for advertising, free-riders enter the market undercutting each others' ad rates until many of them can still profit, but newspapers, which bear the hefty labor costs of gathering the news, can't. —David Marburger and Dan Marburger

  • Jul. 7, 2009
    I went to newser.com for the first time today. It's pretty sweet …the visuals really help me scan the news quickly.—Anand Chokkavelu

  • June 18, 2009
    Over the past year, Newser has also attracted a solid fanbase. The site is bright, and flashy, and puts images front and center, which is—let’s be honest here—the way a lot of us decide which story to follow.—Matthew Shaer

  • June 27, 2009
    I wanted to introduce you to Newser, which substitutes as a newspaper in my life. It pulls together stories from all over, many of which I never would have found without Newser.—Diane Mayr

  • June 18, 2009
    The slogan of the new news web site Newser is “read less, know more…The slogan is slick and there is a big MORE component to it as in we wallow in more unfiltered information with much more work to do.—John Dodge

  • June 18, 2009
    Newser, the news aggregation site founded by Patrick Spain and professional media provocateur Michael Wolff, has raised $2.5 million in its first official round of funding.—Rafat Ali

  • June 18, 2009
    The question of whether the new journalism will pay for itself was taken up by the second panel, a more worldly group than the first. “Oddly, the economics of doing news on the Internet is the opposite of what everybody thought. You can’t make any money with narrowcasting,” said Patrick Spain, CEO of the mega-aggregator Newser. —Michael Miner

  • June 16, 2009
    Do you know “Newser”? It’s a news aggregation and filtering service that is, in its way, even more threatening to the established order than things like Google News or Memeorandum.—Mike Shatzkin

  • June 10, 2009
    Once, for instance, Time and Newsweek ruled the news-magazine buzz. Now, their hold is being threatened by the Week and new online rivals like Huffington Post, the Daily Beast, Newser and TheWrap.—Jon Friedman

  • May 27, 2009
    Others point to another Internet threat to the [newspaper] industry -- the emergence of online news "aggregator" sites, such as Google News or Newser.com, that collect together stories from newspapers and other media.—Kathleen Moore

  • May 27, 2009
    Imagine a TV Mosaic or Channel Mix or Multi Screen and you have the user interface of Newser.—AltSearchEngines

  • May 24, 2009
    Of course, Wolff has a dog in this race. He founded Newser, an "aggregator" site that is just one of the myriad ways in which the internet is killing newspapers.—Paul Harris

  • May 6, 2009
    Have you ever been online looking for information on a recent news topic and been overwhelmed with trying to decide which news website to go to that will give you the best information? I know I have. Have you ever found news websites hard to maneuver around, and just too busy and unorganized? I know I have. And have you ever wished there was a way to consolidate all the information you wanted to know into ONE site? I definitely have. Newser answers all of the questions. —Decibel

  • April 28, 2009
    If there’s one thing media prognosticators can agree on, it’s that print publications are on the way out. The great unanswered question is what the online media of the future will actually look like.—Matt Pressman

  • April 21, 2009
    What Mr. Wolff wants is to reinvent the news business with the Newser way of doing things. "If it's me or it's one of the other ones, we're going to figure this out," he said.—Gillian Reagan

  • Apr. 24, 2009
    You’re getting the best information — just in a much better, and more readable, way. The lifeblood of news is images, and Newser knows that well. —makeuseof.com

  • Apr. 14, 2009
    Our reviewer…loved the Web 2.0 features built into [ Newser ] —VIP

  • Mar. 31, 2009
    The site's motto is "read less, know more," and it offers stylish graphics and ever-changing stories — reduced to a headline, one image and two paragraphs — from hundreds of outside sources.—Jennifer Harper

  • Dec. 30, 2008
    Wow, Newser is using short blasts of interesting news from an array of sources (BBC, Salon, The Guardian, TMZ, NYT, The Economist, People) offered with a key visual. It's easy to use and a great way to look over the news of the day quickly. Developed by Michael Wolff— Vanity Fair writer—and full of delicious nuggets. —Deb Morrison

  • Dec. 10, 2008
    Here's one of my current favorite sites: Newser. I've been using it for a month now and am pretty much addicted, in much the same way as reading the morning paper used to be a daily ritual for the great mass of people. —A Few Paragraphs...

  • Dec. 5, 2008
    I don’t know what the future holds, but let’s admit that people might not always turn to daily broadsheets for their news. Among the inventive new ways of envisioning information, Newser.com is the one I like best: its images are the right size, and it allows you to set your news preferences from hard (Ben Bernanke) to soft (Suri Cruise). —Virginia Heffernan

  • Oct. 14, 2008
    Newser.com is a year-old customizable news aggregator site that condenses the news into entertaining tidbits. —Maria Russo

  • Aug. 12, 2008
    I think I might be in love with it. —Stringer

  • April 20, 2008
    Newser packs a lot of information onto its site and is perfect for anyone addicted to the 24-hour news cycle. —Seattle Post-Intelligencer

  • Apr. 14, 2008
    Newser.com is not an industrial-strength collector like a Google News; it's more selective and more carefully presented. —Matthew Creamer

  • Jan. 12, 2008
    A news aggregator that is far and away better than others in its category, and it includes a daily dose of Mr. Wolff’s trenchant commentary, "Off the Grid." —Robert Birnbaum

  • Aug. 30, 2007
    This promising new online news service gives you instant access to the most talked-about stories of the day. It does so by scouring the web for content, then reporting back with concise summaries, together with photos, video and audio links to original stories… [The grid] allows the site to pack in lots of diverse information with a presentation and design that’s far more appealing than rival news aggregator Digg. —Webuser

  • Aug. 13, 2007
    Time will tell who wins this [internet news] race, but Newser does have the blood lines for a potential winner. In fact, it could become kind of addictive. One might need to register just in order to let the RSS feeds and alerts ease the compulsion to spend one’s day checking those nine windows for news...Mr. Monk would love Newser. —Barbara Quint

  • Aug. 10, 2007
    The colorful presentation is a nice antidote to the bone-dry Google News. —The Christian Science Monitor

  • Aug. 10, 2007
    The welcoming, pleasant experience of enjoying the morning newspaper over breakfast that seems so outdated to us now, is missing online, and Newser goes for that prize. To us, they've succeeded remarkably and we fully expect that their agile model of launching as it now is and continually adapting to user behavior gives them a chance to push the news model to a new level. —Outsell Inc

  • Aug. 2, 2007
    There’s a new news aggregator in town, called Newser.com, and it immediately looks like one of the best I’ve seen. It summarizes the major news stories in a good paragraph or two, then provides prominent links to the major newspapers and wire services that did the original reporting, which makes the aggregating feel less parasitic and more … well … aggregating. —Stephen J. Dubner

  • Aug. 2, 2007
    The site's design is attractive, with 9 top stories displayed by default on the main page in a way that isn't overwhelming, and the summarized news does make it easier to consume. Newser's goal of bringing the "network TV news paradigm" to the Internet looks to me to have been realized. News is presented visually in short snippets and becomes easy to scan. —Read Write Web

  • Aug. 2, 2007
    Newser...has a very slick design, and the news is presented really well. The concept for content selection is pretty good too. —CNET
