It “started as a research project at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, aimed at understanding how the amount of information affects users’ behavior. As a part of the project, Zürich researchers developed their own mobile news aggregator app.” Later they decided to extend to the Windows platform. First, we published the Windows 8 application just before Christmas. Then, the Windows Phone app reached the store in March.
Newscron is a smart news aggregator app that filters and groups all the articles with the same subject. Starting from the publishers, so the user will not read the same article twice. Also, the user can fully customize the feeds including the countries and regions, languages and the frequency of categories.
Altogether, the settings are synced across devices for users who create a Newscron account. Both applications start with a wizard to create the initial setup of the user preferences.
Finally, this is Newscron on Windows 8.
