Die open source App für kleine Nachrichten-Unternehmen

Push, die open source App für kleine Nachrichten-Unternehmen. Neben einer Seite mit klassischen Ressorts können auch Meldungen als push 😉 an die Nutzer geschickt werden. Nice.

There’s very little variety in news apps, and Push checks the feature boxes that most news apps tend to cover. Push lets a user read stories, view photos, watch videos, share to social media and search through archives. Readers using the app can access the publication’s most recent stories and can read them on the go, whether they have an internet connection or not, an important feature in areas of the world where internet access can be limited.

The big impact feature for the app, however, is the ability to use push notifications that put a new story right on users’ lock screens, even if they haven’t opened the app in weeks. This allows those publications who may not have new, or the most exciting content every day, to easily pull readers in and highlight the best they produce.
