Yesterday, Microsoft Garage released News Pro, a news reader app for iOS and the web. The app is seemingly similar to others like Flipboard. You can login with your social media account, either Facebook or LinkedIn, and then you choose from a number of topics pre-loaded based on your social media profile. You can also suggest topics, and News Pro will curate a feed for you with all the latest news.
But News Pro is trying to fill a specific need that other news apps don’t easily meet. News Pro wants to be your daily brief for all the news related to the industry you work in. Regardless if you work in a small industry with a niche product, News Pro aims to deliver personalized insightful news on everything you need to know about your company, the market you are in, and what the competition is up to.
