Pitch for Newsdrop


Company / App Name: Newsdrop

Twitter – @newsdropapp

What does it do?

Newsdrop is a simple news app that delivers news summaries of top daily events in a skimmable form. All articles are short and quick to read, clocking at under 200 words.

Why do we need it?

Busy lifestyles make it harder to stay informed. News sites are also slow to use and some are quite biased. We eliminate these issues by basing our news on several sources and delivering it in short, legible summaries.

Who is it for?

The app is intended for busy individuals who don’t have time to read the news in its entirety or prefer a less uncluttered way to receive news, without constant notifications and interruptions.

What makes it stand out from the crowd?

It’s a unique blend of technology and human effort. We avoid automated curation and rely on our editors who are only aided by technology. The app is also made very simple to use and read.

What’s next?

We plan on introducing categories, infographics and video news.
