Sideshow | Second Screen News

Sideshow brings you live streaming news to your phone or tablet.

Do you have an old phone that you're no longer using? Use it as a Second Screen and install the Sideshow app on it, then leave it on your desk to receive news updates throughout the day.

Instead of checking your news reader constantly all the time, just leave Sideshow running on your extra phone, place it in sight and stay updated with today's news in technology, business, entertainment, sports and other areas.

As you use Sideshow, the app will adapt to your news preferences and show you more articles related to the ones you tap on to read and fewer stories related to the ones you skip.

So as you use the app more, you will have a personalized news feed that's tailored to your tastes, such as more business news and less world news or more tech and less celebrity news. It's like having your own custom TV news channel or a continuously updating news digest on your second screen device.

Let the News Come to You
Adjust the refresh speed to slow if you want to passively sit back and let the news headlines and photos unobtrusively flow by on the side like a personalized news ticker. Or, if you're a news junkie and need to stay up to date on breaking news as it happens right now, increase the refresh rate to get a faster news stream.

Give Your Old Phone a New Job
Don't let your old phone sit unused in a drawer. If you want to stay connected with the world all day, Sideshow works great sitting on your desk at work or your home office, but also works well in your living room alongside your TV or on your kitchen counter.

Sideshow is recommended over wifi and in landscape mode.
