Swiipe: News That Knows You
FREE in the App Store

An easy-to-use and intuitive news reading app has been released. It works a lot like Tinder, but for reading the news instead of finding a date.

Read the news like it's Tinder. Just swipe right to save an article for later, or swipe left if you aren't interested.

Read the news like it's Tinder
Read your articles and add sources

Read your articles and add sources. Your reading list articles open up in the source's website, and there are plenty to choose from.

What is it about?

When you're reading the news, you usually have to scroll through headlines in a long list. Swiipe is different, giving you just one headline at a time. With another unique twist, the app lets you interact with the headlines like you would potential dates on Tinder.

Why we love it

When you're ready to read your articles, just tap the bookmark icon and they'll be waiting for you. Tap to read, or swipe the headline to the left if you decide you want to erase it from your list. The article will load up in a web view, pulled directly from the source's web site. It's a bit small sometimes, but still readable even with my aging eyes. Goodison is still adding sources to pull news from, and that leads to the best part of swiipe. You can set it up to show you just what you're interested in. BBC News, Ars Technica, Associated Press, and Bloomberg are there, just to name a few. According to Goodison, there are currently more than 50 news sources available to you. He plans to quickly expand that to more than 250 sources. I just hope that he categorizes them for quicker perusal and selection. This is a relatively new app, so it's still got some room for improvement. Even so, it's currently my favorite news app, and should get even better as time goes on. Who would have thought you could read the news like you're browsing Tinder? Not me, but in hindsight, it really makes perfect sense. Swiipe offers a very intuitive way to save the articles you want to read later, while dismissing the ones you aren't interested in.
