I'm a BIG fan of Umano (http://umanoapp.com, http://www.producthunt.co/posts/...). This appears to be very similar although I haven't tried it out yet.

Here's @ryanlawler's coverage of the launch today: http://techcrunch.com/2014/03/20...
Seems to be targeted primarily towards commuters, which is a smart niche, albeit one that probably won't have immediate payout/revenue. And the inclusion of weather and traffic is key for those audiences. So whereas Umano replaces you reading blogs, catching up on industry knowledge, etc, Newsbeat will replace traditional terrestrial radio listening and catching up on general news.
Thanks for the mention @rrhoover. It's nice to see the publishers themselves entering this space. @kenromano, the most avid users of Umano are actually commuters. However, we don't market ourselves as a commuter targeted app.
