Circa: News reinvented for your phone

Circa: News Reinvented

You lead a very busy life. A lot of us admit that social media keeps us “in the know” on events and news, but you need to catch up quick. Maybe you just need to squeeze in some time for content research for your blog.

A mobile app called Circa has reinvented how, and where, you view the latest news. If you don’t have time for all the “extras” that come with news, Circa’s got a team of editors and writers to give you the most important pieces of information in a story. It’s all beautifully set up for your phone too. Let’s check it out.

The thing I love about Circa is that it’s very intuitive. Quickly sign up for an account (optional) and you’re on your way!

Quickly and easily choose from top stories or more specific areas like politics, technology and more. You’ll then see a very user-friendly breakdown of stories, with a slider of images and headlines leading the way.

The story is then broken down into several parts. Scroll down to view more information on the story along with links to related stories you might find interesting and relevant.

My favorite part? If you decide this is a story you’d be interested in seeing some follow up on, hit the check mark button at the top right and you’ll get updates as the Circa staff gets them. A new story won’t come out, but now that you’ve saved this specific story, you’ll get updates as they come in.

Sharing to Facebook, Twitter and email is available too. You can pick to share the entire story or just a certain fact within the news story.
