In a recent interview, Fox TV 'news' host Tucker Carlson was asked whether he ever lied to his viewers. He responded by saying: “I guess I would ask myself, like, I mean I lie if I’m really cornered or something. I lie. I really try not to. I try never to lie on TV. I just don’t – I don’t like lying. I certainly do it, you know, out of weakness or whatever." In an age when 'fake news' has been one of the main go-to phrases, that's a more than worrying statement. Is it any wonder then that our younger people seem to be less engaged with what's going on around them than ever before. We know that they don't read newspapers anymore so how do they find out what’s going on in the world? Their smartphones, of course.

As sad as it may be, newspapers and their accompanying in-depth articles seem to be a thing of the past. If the smartphone generation need to check the news, chances are, they aren't going to reach for the newspaper or turn the TV on. They're going to grab their phone and check out a news website, a news app or their social media platform. But with many media outlets openly showing their right or left wing colors these days it's also getting harder to know who to trust and believe. So, where can you go to JUST get the news you are looking for? Well, Newsreels could be just the thing you need.

Newsreels is an app for Android that aims to revolutionize how we get our news in the future. It uses two visual formats - reels and bullets - to display all the main stories from all corners of the globe. The developers consider that the traditional format of headlines plus full articles has become less and less relevant to the smart-phone generation, so Newsreels deliver the news in short summaries and keeps them updated regularly. The app covers a wider spectrum of publishers - both global and regional - than many news outlets, so the volume of news available is huge. You can customize the app to only show news from specific sources or organizations whether they be big or small or from the countries, cities or places that interest you most. Content creators are given the option of collaboration to increase their own publishing audience. What's more, the developers claim that they will deliver 100% accurate news and can deliver it up to twenty times faster than conventional news outlets.

There are two ways to access news stories using Newsreels. First up there's the 'bullet summarizations' engine that saves you plenty of time by listing all the important bullet points of a news story. Then there's the 'newsreels' format where you can simply swipe through a never-ending stream of news reels that includes a video upload feed and gives it a visual feel that's kinda similar to Instagram or TikTok. And we know just how much they love those two, don't we? You get all the news, updated regularly and in a digestible format.

Newsreels is a one-stop portal that was conceived during the 2020 pandemic because of the voracious need for more and more up-to-date news. Rather than having to move back and forth between sources, this is the app where you'll find everything from local to global news at your fingertips. Whether you are looking for the latest Covid news or want to find out what's happening in the 'old country,' Newsreels is the place to go. The developers’ aim is to deliver the quickest and best possible news service for modern day people who don't have heaps of time to keep up with everything that's happening around the world. It's available for free for Android in Google Play.
