News360 is a set of mobile apps for smartphone and tablet platforms. The apps send a tailored stream of news content focused on users’ specific interests. The apps gather and analyse news articles from more than 20,000 online sources, presenting the most important ones in a grid. On the flagship iPad version, each rectangle in the grid is the face of a cube – the user can rotate the cube to see different aspects of the story or activate different actions. Flipping the cube up displays a preview, flipping it down allows story-sharing, turning to the opposite face activates selected coverage. News360 combines diverse sources to provide coverage from diverging perspectives, all with one tap. News360 gets smarter the more it’s used — the app analyses the user’s behaviour and adjusts the feed to provide more sophisticated sources from authors not otherwise available. The system is based on a self-learning ontology with a state-of-the-art linguistic analysis engine that tracks more than a million topics, organizations, people and products. News360 apps have been downloaded by over 1.5 million people and positively reviewed by the news industry.
