Company / App Name: News Gyre
What does it do?
News Gyre brings together news articles from around the globe, sorting them using on-site activity and social media trends data, and displays them in a multitude of ways.
Why do we need it?
News Gyre breaks down news bias by showcasing articles on the same topic side-by-side so users can compare information and come to their own conclusions. It also presents the news in several unique display styles, helping news discovery.
Who is it for?
This web app is for anyone who takes interest in the news. From the casual observer to a hard-core news fanatic, News Gyre has what you are looking for in a way that is easy to digest.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
News Gyre is the first news aggregate site to use social media trends data to sort articles. It also boasts several unique methods of displaying the news, including on a map, across an image wall, and even vintage newspaper-esque columns.
In the near future mobile functionality will be added, along with automated breaking-news alerts. Of course, fresh news sources and new interface options will also become available as time goes on.
