Powered by the same algo-social editing technology that's powering the highly-acclaimed Riversip line of apps, this app has the ability to "understand" what's buzzing, what's hot and what is grabbing Aussies' attention – and serve it with a slick user experience. The result is an impressive news app that always serves the most prominent selection of items & videos, covering the main news sites and all regional territories.
“With the increasing prominence and highly dynamic nature of Australia we thought our Australian users would appreciate an app that brings them local, national & world news with power & ease. As our other apps, this app is crowd-powered: The headlines are determined by what Australians online talk about.” said Briox Co-Founder Nati Berkover.
Some of the primary features of the app are:
A 360 view for each story – with a long tap on a story, you can see all coverages of the story from the various news sources.
Adapting the news to your personal pace: Choose a timer perspective that works for you – be it the latest news, the most important news of the day, or the most important news of the week
Push notifications on prominent events
Effortlessly get the full social conversation around a story – If your friends tweeted or posted in Facebook referring to the news stories, we’ll show you what they had to say!
A personalized news summary – for user's chosen topics/geographic regions!
