It’s taken me a year of iteration on Inside.com, but I think my team and I have figured out mobile news. This team of 14 full-timers and 50 writers has been crushing it for the last four months, building out our 3.0 product.
Please download it and let me know what you think.
3.0 is on iOS this month, Android next.

Our BHAG* is to curate the world’s best news and get people to the truth quicker
[ * big hairy audacious goal ]
We believe there will be a new class of content creators online. They’re not journalists or bloggers, we call them ‘curators.’
Curators find amazing stuff, organize it, and then share it.
If they do a great job you’ll follow them and eventually you might pay them. Yep, curation of content will become a career — book it! Launching our 3.0 product is the first major step in that direction.
You can be a curator right now: download the App, copy any url you find to your clipboard (on your phone), and submit it by pressing the orange pen button.
That’s it. We take it from there by checking that it’s not a duplicate story, and then writing a clean summary (free of link-bait and packed with facts).
