In little more than 4 months News Republic has attracted over 400,000 new iPhone and Android users with its English, French and Italian editions and this week saw the launch of a Spanish edition with a German language version to follow shortly. In March alone over 15 million news articles including breaking news headlines, in-depth features plus live updates on many popular subjects including Sport, Business, Technology, Celebrity, Entertainment and Hollywood Gossip were viewed on the app.
This hugely popular News Application is now launching on multiple new platforms including Blackberry, Symbian, Bada, Windows Phone 7 and webOS as well as Android Honeycomb tablets. The much awaited iPad version is due in a matter of weeks.
The success of News Republic is based on the company's proprietary TagNav(c) system whereby the user can easily search and organise news stories and related news articles that are of specific interest to them. The app is designed to enable users to closely follow their favourite subjects, people or places and be the first to know when a new story breaks. The simple and fluent interface allows users to search, discover and share vital news stories using email, Twitter or Facebook.
Users create their very own unique and personalised news channels generated from thousands of breaking news stories from over 50 leading news agencies, major brands and local media sources around the world including AFP, AP, Reuters and PR Newswire and multiple specialist media brands including ITN, Adfero, Techradar, eWeek, breaking Celebrity news from WENN plus many more.
The app has secured licensing agreements with all the content providers so users get the full stories, pictures and videos within the app itself. In addition, news stories can be referenced to external resources including Wikipedia, YouTube and Google and with over 120,000 topics covered, users have the option to search and find out even more information or related news and articles across the entire web instantly.
