Do you often find yourself sighing, “So little time, so many Web articles to read”? Or just plain thinking, “tl;dr”? Then the newly launched Wibbitz may just be the perfect fit for you.
Wibbitz is a clever iOS app that serves up beautiful audio and video summaries of articles from some of the most popular blogs and online publishers:
Reading long articles on a mobile device is way too difficult, especially when you’re on the move. Wibbitz lets you watch the news you love in the form of video summaries instead of having to read it- Perfect for a mobile experience.
For each article, the app creates a visualization that combines relevant images, video clips, and animated infographics, with some Ken Burns effect thrown in for good measure. The visualization is accompanied by a narration of the article’s summary that is more or less natural-sounding.
Wibbitz is able to do this through advanced text analysis and algorithmic generation.
With Wibbitz, you can:
- Watch and listen to the latest news from top news sources with one tap
- Swipe up anywhere to watch a specific article
- Swipe down anywhere to go back
- Choose news sources like world, business, technology sports, etc…
- Arrange your feeds in the order you want
