News agency Reuters has unveiled a personalised news app designed to help business professionals make better decisions.
Users of the app can discover thousands of topic feeds from Reuters global news resource and curate these into a customised news service. Additionally, the app offers a range of personalisation features, including customised alerts, market watchlists and bespoke analysis of stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities.
Isaac Showman, managing director of Reuters Consumer, said, “People rely on Reuters to inform their personal and professional decision-making. In building the new app, we wanted to make it easier for users to access quality news and data across the thousands of specialist topics we cover. By being a ‘news utility’, we’re focusing on being incredibly useful, fast and relevant for our users.”
The app also features Editor’s Highlights cards that provide a summary of major stories in each feed, a personalised news bulletin from Reuters TV, where users can select their program length and offline access.
An Android version will be available in coming weeks
