Wavii’s easy-to-use iPhone app is powered by unique big-data machine learning technology. Wavii’s engine crawls the real-time web (articles, blogs, tweets and more), figures out what’s happening, and creates instant news feeds with updates about any topic. Unlike other places people turn to for news, these updates distill all related articles into a single, unbiased feed item, so you can avoid duplicate stories and have one place to discuss events with friends. Your newsfeed on Wavii is personalized based on the topics you care about.
“We no longer have the time or patience to read every article to find out what’s happening in the world. Nobody expects to have to read paragraphs when they want the latest sports scores, stocks or weather, so why should we for everything else? Bite-sized news updates are faster to consume and let us dive into the story only when we want more information, like a new navigational layer on top of the news,” said Adrian Aoun, founder and CEO of Wavii. “What’s more, they’re easier to comment on and share with friends. With Wavii 2.0 for iPhone, we’ve listened closely to feedback to create a simple, powerful mobile experience that lets you keep up with what’s happening in the world and share with friends from wherever you are.”
Key features of Wavii’s new iPhone app include:
