There’s a lot of news out there, but there’s also a lot of “news”--that link bait stuff with sensational headlines and other detritus that just clogs up the Internet. Jason Calacanis is seeking to offer a tidier way of curating the news
with a mobile app
The goal is to provide a stream of news headlines every day that are hand-curated by real people and link back to original sources. The Inside.com team just wants the good stuff, actual journalism, and Inside.com promises over a thousand posts every day.
The posts will include a headline and up to a 300-word summary with the salient facts listed. Ideally, users will hit the source links and read the articles in full.
“We only link to the most relevant and original sources with the best reporting, and weed out the overwhelming noise in the news space. We seek out the true experts on every story,” reads the app description
Coverage runs 24/7 and will include topics from all over the world. You’ll be able to customize your feed so that you’re seeing primarily the stuff you’re most interested in, and there will be a Top News feed with what Inside.com believes are the top 25 most important updates for the day.
You can comment on a post and also vote it up or down. From the app, you can swipe right to view the archive of a given topic. Inside.com is available for iOS
, and on the web; presumably an Android app is coming shortly, too.
