New Timeline App Provides Context On Every Single News Story
With a ton of news sites and apps coming out every single day, more people are opting to get their latest news online. However, there is one problem with these sites as they all just report the main crux of the news that has happened on that particular day without even mentioning the context of it.
This is effective, but for some people it gets really confusing as they have to then read up on previous material on the subject to make sense of what exactly this latest news is all about.
However, to the delight of people, a new Timeline app has been developed which not only will give you the latest on the news, but it will also provide you with the whole background of the news, so that you can follow up on the events that took place before today. This will help you get better understanding on the latest news.
The app will work on the keywords, if the news is about US President and his tense relationship with the media, then underneath the news, you will see different news stories telling the history of their relationship where some will be about why the relationship got worse, or why the journalists are reporting too much against the president, thus providing you with each tidbit that you are looking for to stay up to date.
Upon downloading the app, you will notice that the topics selected are quite wide and have a lot of variety, which is totally opposite to what other apps and news websites are trying to do.
This makes the experience fresh for the users, and it won’t be surprising to see this app becoming first choice for the people who are looking to find out about some event, but don’t possess enough knowledge about the events that took place before.
Timeline app’s head of marketing and growth, Spencer Chen in an e-mail, told Tech Crunch about the gap that they saw in the market.
The news that we read today is only the tail-end of many important events in history that shaped the events of today. Timeline enables readers to discover all these key facets of a news story and offers readers much richer context and understanding of the news.
And in some ways, the team’s vision is less about seeing a big gap in the news app category but more about seeing a bigger (and natural) evolution with the best ways news and information is to be consumed by everyday consumers.
The idea of this app is certainly intriguing and will attract a lot of people towards it. If you are looking to get your hands on the app, visit its official website.
