All-new Breaking News app for Android
We’re excited to announce a brand new version of our free Android app that lets you decide what’s breaking news to you.
Android users join iOS users in being able to control the news they see with a few quick taps of the screen.
When you open the app, you’ll see a real-time feed of everything by default.
ALERT - Tap the alarm bell above an item to get real-time push notifications whenever news breaks about that specific topic. With custom alerts, you don’t even need to open the app. Just glance at your phone and you’re up to date.
MUTE - Hide stories you don’t want to see updates on. You can mute topics that annoy you (Justin Bieber, anyone?) and also things you don’t want spoiled - just in time for the Olympics!
WHOA! - Not all news is like-worthy, so we’ve created something new. Tap the “Whoa!” button to register your surprise to a breaking update. You can also alert your friends on social media, email or SMS. As you “Whoa!” updates in real-time, you help power a list of the most surprising stories, photos and videos at the bottom of the feed.
We’ve reinvented Breaking News around you. If you have questions or feedback, we’d love to hear from you: send us a tweet to @breaking, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop us a note via BreakingNews.com.
And please check out our launch video, starring Arthur Roberts.
