Robin Good's curator insight, September 3, 2013 2:46 PM



Newshunt is a news aggregator for smartphones, much like Flipboard or Pulse, but with the unique ability of being able to work with 12 different regional Indian languages that utilize special characters.


NewsHunt aggregates content from over 100 newspapers in 12 languages from India, Bangladesh and Africa.


Newshunt is capable of rendering different language characters across devices and OSes without requiring the specific device to support that language.


"It serves as a very helpful tool to get regional language newspaper especially for those users who dont have access to their favorite home town newspapers and want their content on the go."


NewsHunt works on all platforms and devices including J2ME, Symbian, Blackberry, Android & iOS. You can also access it directly on http://m.newshunt.com 


Free to use.

Love Flipboard. This new feature opens up a whole new world for content curation.

Víctor V. Valera Jiménez's curator insight, May 17, 2013 7:31 PM

Ahora ya no hace falta disponer de un Ipad o una tablet o smartphone para realizar nuestra propia revista en Flipboard, ya que con el nuevo editor online en la web de esta conocida herramienta, podremos realizar nuestra propia curación desde nuestro ordenador.

 

Este vídeo nos da una pequeña introducción de como empezar a usar este editor en la web de Flipboard, mediante el botón o "bookmarklet" que se puede instalar en la barra de favoritos de nuestro navegador para ir capturando los contenidos que nos parezcan interesantes para nuestra publicación.

Since Flipboard launched on the web the audience of my Flipboard magazine ( http://flip.it/7dXbs ) has grown from 1000 people to 8000 people. So for me this was a huge shift.

Thank you Trendspotter for sharing this valuable info. Much appreciated indeed.

To be fair. First the CEO of Flipboard had added my Future magazine to his personal list of his favorite magazines. Then some weeks later the team at Flipboard added my magazine in their new overview of officially recommended Flipboard user magazines, where I'm still listed here (https://flipboard.com/magazines/#tech-science) that is when my readership grew to 8000 people. Now I've noticed that my magazine is also showing up in the recommended list of tech magazines in the Flipboard app, next to large media sites like Ars Technica or Giga OM or TNW. That is when I grew to 10.000 readers.

So my point is: Flipboard starting the web version was not the only effect why I got so many new readers there. Basically the reason was their promotion of my magazine, which started when they started their web version.
