Newspy




Nowadays we have plenty of information sources, from email to RSS, Twitter and Facebook. Although we also have awesome apps to read them all, it is very difficult to keep an eye in everything all the time, so it is easy to miss those news that would really interest us. Have you ever missed a great deal about something you were after because you didn't check that site on that exact day? Would you like to spend less time in Facebook but still know what your best friends or your children are posting? Newspy helps you fight the information overload!

Newspy continuously searches several sources for relevant news based on custom rules you define, and notifies you as soon as they arrive. It is not meant to replace your favorite news reader or Twitter/Facebook client for casual reading, but to complement them instead.

To use Newspy you just need to:
  1. Define the news sources to be checked periodically. This can include RSS Channels, your Twitter timeline, Facebook wall updates, LinkedIn network updates, Tumblr and Reddit posts, web pages and e-mail messages.

  2. Create rules (keyword lists or expressions) that will be used to find relevant news and associate them to the sources.
Newspy will periodically fetch the latest news from all sources, retain only those that match your search rules, and consolidate them into a single stream. It will then show alerts for items found.
