For a news junkie like myself, Newsibly is an absolute Godsend. This news application gives a complete compendium of stories on your designated subject taken from all of the leading newspapers and news outlets around the world. For the avid news reader or, more importantly the news researcher, Newsibly delivers headlines on your specifically searched subject on the one page. All stories expand from their original location giving you all the detailed news without having to search individually and without having to sort the real stuff out from the ads and filler that generally fills most regular news outlets.
Newsibly is a tool that allows users to get up to date with current events without having to wade through the 'fluff' and 'link bait' stories of the sort that are often prevalent on mainstream news outlet homepages. Newsibly scans the headlines from many well known news sources and, by using a proprietary algorithm, sorts through them to find and display only the biggest and most important topics. The goal is to provide an 'at-a-glance' view of what's happening in the world which can be expanded to include the full story. If a desired, users can quickly scan the tags and a few headlines of each chosen topic to get the gist of what the big stories are. Then, if .desired, you can then dive into each section's articles and take a look at the topic from the viewpoints of multiple news sources. The system was design to allow users to get a feel for the biggest events and news in just a few seconds with the added bonus of being able to delve deeper. Additional features include outlet highlighting which allows users to pick their favorite news source to display first in each section, an archive that allows users to view the big topics from the previous few days and an automated Twitter feed (@newsibly) that brings the biggest topics directly to users throughout the day.
Newsibly is a truly blissful news application for those of us who want to read all the different aspects of a news story but it is especially useful for researchers. Just type in your selected subject and a multiple stream of stories on the subject from major news outlets worldwide are delivered to your screen. These stories are drawn from publications as prestigious as the Washington Post, The New York Times and the BBC so it is high quality news. It's very easily to use and, even though it's hardly the most beautiful interface that you've ever seen, it's actually beautifully functional. All of the stories are expandable to their original source material making it a dream to use. I can guarantee that this is one news app that will most certainly be used a lot in my household. I love it.
