Our apps provide bullet point, Cliff's notes-like news stories that gives readers the facts without all of the fluff. We're also pioneering a new kind of news consumption where readers can subscribe to *individual stories* by following them, they later receive updates to those stories as they're updated over time by our editorial staff.
