News Republic, a disruptive global news syndicator (a section of which we covered earlier), today announced that it has been selected by HTC Corporation to deliver real-time news on all HTC smartphones and tablets worldwide.
We believe that news connects us – to each other and to the world. Making information easily available to the millions of HTC users in 40 countries will provide more empowerment and engagement. We know that those who read better, know better, and ultimately – we hope – do better.
said News Republic’s CEO, Gilles Raymond.
The app can be accessed via HTC Blinkfeed application and will give HTC users a more personalized news experience by providing them with topics from more than 1,500 fully licensed quality content partners. Thus, users will get a personalized, “nano-casted” list of relevant in-depth articles on worldwide, regional or local events.
News Republic boasts of an innovative news navigation system called Tag Nav™, via which users get access to content from partners including The Associated Press, Reuters, Huffington Post, Business Insider, BloomBerg, TechCrunch and of course, The Tech Portal. In addition to it, it provides personal, in-depth and complete content in a highly visual format.
It claims to curate over 50,000+ articles per day through news stories, photographs, and videos from more than 1,500 trusted global media partners, News Republic is a one-stop-shop for international and local news with more than 12 million people around the globe reading their news on News Republic app. The app is highly rated and was recently named Editor’s Choice on Google Play.
