App Store Description

A great pleasure to introduce the App "External".

Perhaps you know that the trending topic will be updated every hour on your Twitter, Facebook, or whatever social media you are using, but you may not know trending topics for different countries show different content on different platforms. The issue you care a lot may not be an issue to your "neighbors".

As the globalization process is speeding up nowadays, it is important to let everyone know what people are actually thinking, especially for those you are not familiar with. Although the social media platform is surely controlled by giant companies like Twitter, Weibo, or Facebook, etc, which means they can use the algorithm to let you see what you want to see. But I think if we can diversify the source and location of the information. At least we can have a better view of a particular topic and generate your own thoughts.

In my opinion, the media should not be owned or controlled by one particular political party or country. It should be an objective platform and report only facts. That should be the foundation to let it be called a media.

"Objective" is also the original name for this app, but unfortunately the name is taken by another app. "External" is also a great name since if you want to know more about the world and have critical thinking about the topic. You need to explore the "External" area around you.

Although this is a very simple app, I hope you can al least get some ideas from it. It's a totally free app. I also did not expect too many users, so the servers should be able to hold the load. Anonymous users will have a 6 hours update window while the other signed-in users will have an update in every hour.

The 1.0 version contains a list of major countries. I encourage you to check the trending topic for different countries by using the built-in Google Translate result. The result probably will be inaccurate. But at least it is the better machine translation I can find on the market.

Current Supported Countries: Australia, Brazil, China, Canada, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Russia, Spain, SouthAfrica, UnitedKingdom, UnitedStates

That will be all. Hope you can enjoy the app! Feel free to use the app store comments to share your thoughts.
