Oh "Appy" Day: Tech On Tuesday: News-O-Matic

  FREE download and 2 week trial, then subscription based

I recently downloaded a new app that quickly became a favorite in my house and my classroom.  News-O-Matic is a daily use app.  My kids check this app daily to get the day's news stories and current events.  Each news story is kid-friendly and entertaining.  The news of the days is covered through videos, maps, games, images and stories.  It includes stories for all interests including sports, science, world news, and even wacky events.  This is a safe way for young readers to become global learners.

New issues are featured daily and include:

  • Five news articles
  • Detailed videos, images, pictures, and games
  • Maps for every story
  • Interactive timeline
  • Puzzles, games, facts
  • Each story can be read aloud, so even non-readers can enjoy the news
All articles are safe and kid-friendly.  Each article is reviewed by a child psychologist before it is published.

The News-O-Matic app is free to  download and includes a free 2 week trial period.  After the trial period you can subscribe for $19.99 for one year, $2.99 monthly, or $1.99 weekly.  We are coming up on the end of our trial period and I will be making a subscription purchase!  This one is well worth the cost!!
