News apps and websites are a quite big deal these days. As technology grows to be more efficient, so does its influence on our lives. Rarely do we pick up a newspaper anymore to stay informed. Not only can you get the news from your phone, but it will always be more current than a traditionally published piece anyway. When all the news you would ever need is in your hand, why look anywhere else? Yet, with that convenience comes the added headache of an overwhelming amount of information. There is just so much news out there and not to mention a million different sources covering it. What is the solution to this dilemma? It’s called Haku and it lets you “DJ” your news.
Haku is based on an intelligent tagging engine. You start by selecting the tags you’re interested in. Combine Category Tags like “fashion” or “film”, with Topic Tags like the “Apple Watch” or “Climate Change”. Then you add in your favorite News Sources and Haku does the rest. As you scroll through your news mix, you can tell the world what you think or create custom collections by selecting tags at the bottom of any article. You can also quickly create filters to hide the topics you don’t want to see. Let’s say you’re tired of hearing about Kim Kardashian. Who isn’t? You can filter all of the news about her out of your feed.
Haku is controlled by you and will only provide content related to your specified interests. Finally there is a news app where you have complete control. Haku is free for iOS, Android and available in any browser. So go to your appstore today and search for “Haku” to download it or head on over to their website.
