Problem

Users want to be caught up on the latest news but become easily overwhelmed by the amount of resources and articles online. Like the “Netflix affect” they quickly get fatigued and bail.

Soultion

By controlling the amount of articles and pulling content from user’s relevant interests, personalized social media channels and trends, this gives users a set of easily consumable digests. Having a timed release of day and night editions also enables users to create a predictable habit in their lifestyle routine instead of being intrusive.
