When setting up the app, users are supposed to pick their preferred news sources and topics they'd like Newsbeat to track.

Newsbeat begins with a quick weather report and highlights any major traffic problems in your area.

Once articles start playing, you're able to pause and restart a story at any point.

Newsbeat is free, and will also be available on Android at launch.
