New BBC Newsbeat app designed for the millenials

Reading the news and current affairs is important. You need to be well-informed of what’s going on not only in your city but the rest of the world. This way, you can make informed decisions that will benefit you and the people around you. While there are numerous news websites that can be trusted, most people now prefer to read news and stories straight from a mobile app.

Newsfeed and reader apps are available but for an enhanced news-reading experience, you can turn to any official news reader app like the Newsbeat app. It’s the newest app from BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, developed especially for smartphones.

The Newsbeat app has been designed to be more mobile focused and more social. It features content that can be easily accessed and read with a simple swipe. It brings a new mobile experience and news viewing with cool visual effects on images and text. You can search through the Newsbeat app on a certain topic. All articles and materials on the subject will show up on a page when you click on the related tags. And since sharing stories is very common these days, you can also share the new to your contacts on social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Whatsapp.

According to Louisa Compton, Editor of Radio 1’s Newsbeat, the app was created for the 16 to 24 year olds—the millenials—in mind. This young group of readers can now view relevant news, stories that matter, big interviews and social trends, entertainment news, and witness best of BBC’s original journalism.

The app offers interactive cards for browsing stories and sharing them. You can easily see the top stories and latest headlines, as well as, features and analysis. To make the story more believable and easy to understand, news clips are embedded.
