Bit.ly and New York Times launches iPad app News.me -  Will you pay weekly for social news? » TNW Apps | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it

Exclusive: An Early Look At News.me, The New York Times’ Answer To The Daily

Exclusive: An Early Look At News.me, The New York Times’ Answer To The Daily | Brand & Content Curation | Scoop.it
Tomorrow, all eyes will be on the launch of News Corp's iPad newspaper The Daily, but huddled away in a downtown loft in New York City's meatpacking district a team from betaworks and the New York Times are busy putting together their answer to what an iPad news app should be. The collaboration will be called News.me, and it won't look anything like The Daily. I know because I've been playing with an early version of the app, which I will describe in detail below along with the first-ever published screenshots of the app.

News.me is a social news reading app that presents the news that the people you follow on Twitter are reading, and filters it based on how many times those stories are shared and clicked on overall. It pulls in data from not only Twitter but also bit.ly, the betaworks company that shortens billions of shared links every month. In contrast, The Daily will produce its own articles and videos with a staff of 100 journalists. It is not clear how many social features will be included in The Daily, but the emphasis seems to be more on the original content. We'll find out more tomorrow (I'll be covering the launch).
