Camemberu on Singtel NewsLoop Apps and NewsRadio 93.8LIVE Mondays
Posted 12:26 PM
Have you seen the free Newsloop app for the iPad and now the iPhone? It's a locally developed e-Reader with a fresh, neat and easy-to-read magazine-style format. A bit like Flipbook but easier to find what you want. I really like the clean design. Swipe vertically for categories and horizontally for stories within that category. Customise it according to your favourite news sources. It's also a smart app that learns your news preferences and can continue to recommend content for you.
Yes, there are news readers galore, but this app by Singtel is particularly good for local content - stories relevant to us! Local content partners include TODAY, Channel NewsAsia, The Online Citizen, I-S Magazine, PropertyGuru, sgCarMart, inSing, and lots of local blogs, including Camemberu.com! MrBrown, Keropokman, BagaholicBoy, Misstamchiak, Ladyironchef, Mother Inc, Ieatishootipost, Tech65, and so on -- we're all here.
So you can catch up on more than 230 international and local media sources and blogs across 26 categories. The full list of content providers is here - http://www.getnewsloop.com/inside-newsloop
You can also add news feeds and timelines from LinkedIn, Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter. Plus, share your favourite articles via email, social network or SMSes.
Download it FREE on the iTunes app store.
Some of you may have heard me occasionally giving the Foodie Lunch Pick on 938LIVE - I'm the "backup" person when the regulars can't make it.
But I will soon have a regular slot Mondays starting 3 Dec 2012. Tune in for Foodie Lunch Pick 11.10am and a repeat at 12.10pm. It's a casual five-minute chat on where to eat, and it's on every weekday with different food bloggers and personalities giving their recommendations.
Warning: I'm still better at writing than speaking.
