NewSum, our smartphone & tablet application that summarizes news from different sources in one text is getting “good marks” from beta testers! The main points from the first feedback:
- Satisfaction: Most people are very satisfied with it (an average of 4 out of 5 in a 5-scale question),
- Text quality: They are surprised to see that the text is “readable”
- Main perceived advantage: you get up-to-date with the news faster. And from different sources.
- Summary evaluations: an average score of 4 / 5 stars (from more than 450 evaluations)
What you are mostly suggesting is that NewSum has to a) have a better look and b) use more news sources and categories.
Thank you for the feeback! What we haven’t told you is that NewSum will give more to the community. We’ll get back to that soon.
For now, you can download the beta version for your android. Please, do send us your feedback, and spread the word!
I want to support this project.
