If you are anything like me, you read a lot of content online. From news about politics, to technology news, and everything in between, the world of news has gone digital. Many publications have seen this and in doing so developed a presence in the mobile world through applications that provide their content on devices such as the iPhone or iPad. Well, this is all fine and dandy, but what if you just want some quick news, and don’t have the time to sit and read long articles? Circa was designed for you. CEO of Circa, Matt Galligan, explains its goal as such:
We’re trying to make it so that people educate themselves for 5 minutes as opposed to play Angry Birds.
The usual mobile news experience is clicking links spread through Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks, which then bring you to either a mobile page with a long article, or a desktop site that can be cluttered with advertisements and confusing to follow. With Circa, it cuts all that down to only the important parts, the parts you have time to pay attention to. If you are interested in a particular story that is developing, you can mark that piece and Circa will update you when more information becomes available.
This isn’t just some other news aggregator, Circa has actual journalists that can get the facts to you quick, and keep you updated if the story is still developing. The interface of the app is fluid, quick, intuitive, and filled with feature-rich content. If you haven’t already skipped down to the source link, I would do so now, this application is fantastic. Oh, did I mention it’s free?
What do you think? Are you excited to use Circa? Does this concept appeal to you, and if not, why? Let us know in the comments.
