We should all be aware of what is happening around the world. But when you turn on a news channel that is reporting global news, it often feels uninteresting and the news being delivered often does not directly affect you. What does affect people is mostly shared on Facebook and Twitter by countless users on the network. Thus to get the most interesting news on any topic from anywhere, you must be able to check out what news people are sharing on these social networks. There is an app called NewsWhip for iOS devices that delivers news in precisely this manner.
NewsWhip is a free to use smartphone application that is compatible with iOS devices. The app is sized at nearly 4 MB and requires your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad device to be running version 4.3 or later of iOS. This app scans Facebook and Twitter for interesting news from around the world, every minute. This news is then delivered to your iOS devices sorted in the global category.
You can also narrow down the news based on one of the following 10 regions – the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, India, Europe, China, and South Africa. Various topics are covered by the app including politics, gossip, tech, fun, music, movies, gaming, startups, health, food, and 12 different sports. News can be filtered according to topic as well.
