We’re tired of all the shouting matches and echo chambers on social media, and thought you might be, too. So we decided to build a place for a smart discussion about the news.
Around here, we still believe rigorous journalism and bold ideas are powerful things that will shape the future. We also believe that our readers collectively know more than we do. In our new app, we’ve gathered a community of curious thinkers and doers to have high-quality discussions about the most important stories each day, and we’d like you to join us. It’s like an ongoing discourse with people like Bill Gates that you’ll be able to carry around in your pocket and contribute to.
- News for you, curated by us--featuring all major publishers including the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Quartz (hi!), Recode, the New York Times, WIRED, Reuters, and many more.
- Stay informed with notifications on the important stories
- Personalize your news feed with the topics you love.
- Follow your favorite thinkers from technology, finance, business, politics, and more.
- Pick the stories that interest you and share your ideas with the community
- Engage with an informed community of leaders, subject matter experts, and curious minds.
Who You’ll Be Joining:
Richard Branson (Founder, Virgin Group)
Arianna Huffington (Founder & CEO, Thrive Global)
Kai Fu Lee (Founder, Sinovation Ventures)
Adam Grant (Professor & Author, Wharton School)
Sallie Krawcheck (Founder and CEO, Ellevest)
Ian Bremmer (President, Eurasia Group and GZERO Media)
And many more!
We hope this app makes you smarter, and because we believe our readers collectively know more than we do, we can’t wait to learn from you! Let us know what you think at email@example.com

Ratings and Reviews
A scratchpad to store stories
I’m using the app just like how I use pocket—instead of saving online content to the pocket, I pick it on Quartz, which, in addition to features offered by Pocket, also allows me to leave a thought/note if I’ve read through the story, or just pick it and I can read it and add a comment later. I also get to see what others are commenting, another useful feature I’m not getting elsewhere.

I am very satisfied with the news feom Quartz—it is news not gossip. My thanks and appreciation to your group of reporters who know what real news is and work diligently to report it unbiased and reporting inly what is truly important and reporting the real truth about it without tainting it with agendas and personal interest. I love the fact that here at Quartz teeth is told as it is—as the teeth—and not changed or modified according to what the world would like it to be.
All your news in one place
A phenomenal app to read the latest and most important stories. Although my favorite part is the community aspect - Not only do I get access to endless quality content, but I also get to read comments from business leaders and CEOs. This app is great to gain knowledge on different topics and learn perspectives from people all across the globe.
