We are happy to announce the release of a brand new version of NewsMix – http://newsmix.me. Our iPad news application was to work as a personalized iPad magazine. But today, with the new version, we are taking NewsMix to the next level by providing not only a social magazine, but a whole cross platform digital newsstand which brings YOU into the center stage.
This new version of NewsMix not only displays your Twitter updates right into NewsMix but it also lets you subscribe to newspapers and blogs and to Twitter users to read their Tweets, Twitter Favorites and personal mix of news (MyMix). All this in a neat, beautifully designed HTML5 webpage – http://newsmix.me. This application will particularly benefit publishers and curators, who will be able to publish their Tweets together with any other article they set their eyes upon and think is worth reading and sharing. Surely, discovering and sharing news has never been easier! NewsMix offers a cutting-edge way to get the news and information that really matter to you, no matter whether you are on your iPad or on the Web.
Using the MyMix functionality, users could already view and share a selection of their favorite articles on the web – a somewhat limited feature, for NewsMix remained an iPad-only application. From now on, however, the application will be available to each and every one of you – regardless of whether you have the iPad application or not. As for now, the web application is free, but we plan on implementing a premium version in the foreseeable future.
The online version of NewsMix offers the following main features:
- Subscribe to personalized magazines shared by your friends, blogs and newspapers or to topics of interest
- Browse others’ magazines
- Add any article to your personal magazine (MyMix)
- Add content from your browser into your MyMix by using the bookmarklet
- Share PDF versions of magazines via email
- Share articles and magazines on Twitter and/or Facebook
- Send out your personal weekly magazine via Twitter
