Dear NewsWhip friend –
A little bad news for you today: we’ve retired our free news app.
When we started NewsWhip nearly five years ago, we had no idea what kind of company we were creating. In late 2011, we launched our free news app as part of figuring out what would work.
Since then, we’ve grown into something quite different: a technology company that signals the stories and events that matter each day. We provide those signals to the news companies, creators and journalists you already trust, and they in return pay a subscription fee.
We kept the free news app going until recently because it has a fan base, and we’re really loyal to our users. But its become harder for us to maintain. We just finished a big site redesign, so keeping the news app going has become much more difficult. Last month, we made the tough decision to retire it completely.
Right now, if you’re a journalist or use our News App professionally, we invite you to start a free trial of Spike and see what our turbo charged, professional product can do for you. It’s like our news app on steroids x 5000. Plus we’ll sort you out with a discount to get going.
The NewsWhip Team
