Newzstand Corp. announces that its NewzSocial App for iPad is now available from the Apple App Store. With NewzSocial, users harness the power of their social network to discover and share the experience of reading news. This app allows you to create your own news channels on any topic, share channels with your friends and curate articles that are a ‘must read’ within a channel.
"The paradigm of finding your news is rapidly evolving," said Anand Jagannathan, founder and CEO of Newzstand. “Instead of thinking of each individual as just a consumer to whom news is to be pushed, we see an opportunity for people to share their expertise and become an active participant in news ecosystems that mirror their social groups and changing interests. You might be interested in following news on the US elections, fall fashion, new technology and latest movies. With NewzSocial and the diverse expertise in your social groups, you can now share and curate customized channels that make it more interesting, be it the ‘presidential debates’, ‘gluten free trends’, ‘social media privacy’ or the ‘twilight saga’.”
Early users of NewzSocial have commented on the power of the app to help them discover news on a wide range of topics. "I was very impressed with NewzSocial’s ability to help me discover articles from specialized scientific sources that I would not have otherwise seen as easily" said Dr. Pejman Naraghi, a molecular biologist at Lawrence Livermore Labs and beta user of the app. "In addition, I enjoyed being able to keep track of interesting articles, even on subject areas I previously knew little about, that my friends were finding and sharing in NewzSocial."
NewzSocial is a social news reader that respects your privacy. You are automatically connected with friends on your social network and you can selectively share channels and choose friends to curate a channel.
