Description

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.

The details:

- 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 hi@qz.com

What’s New

Version 1.0.11

"A small update with a big bug fix this time around.

[Product Updates]
-We've fixed a bug that was causing the app to crash often for some users.

-When you're making a Pick from another app or mobile web, we now let you know if the Pick failed for various reasons.

-You may get some in-app reminders to rate us -- we're still new and need all your feedback!

[Community Highlights]
-We added a new group of Pros, ranging from artist and astronaut Nicole Stott to ex-deputy governor of Illinois Bradley Tusk to Microsoft executive vice president Peggy Johnson, and more! Check them out and make sure to follow them for their insights.

-Over the weekend, the New York Times story on the startups rejecting venture capital garnered a great discussion with many startup founders, investors and others who work in related areas chiming in.

-Melinda Caughill, CMO at i65 Medicare Software, wrote: ""As a startup founder who doesn't fit the cookie cutter image of what an investor typically funds, I'm cheering this movement. The VC model is so broken and one-sided.""

-Jeanna Liu, a tech banker, wrote: ""As someone who makes a living raising later-stage growth capital for startups and helping them exit, I have seen too many startups who should never have taken VC funding suffer the consequences...But VCs are not villains here. The reality is that they are just one type of capital suitable for only a small segment of business-model-specific companies. They should not be viewed as the default method for funding growth.""

-Peter Neeves, director of expert's community at CentSai, wrote: ""I think it's somewhat of a misrepresentation that VC firms are pushing businesses to fail. They lose money when businesses fail...They're pushing businesses to grow extremely rapidly. There's a lot of risk involved. But they take that risk with an expectation that it will work.""

Great news content

I thought at first it was only Quartz news but it’s actually most of, if not all the major news publications. They do a great job posting breaking news. I love the social media aspect of it, and it’s nice to read expert input to understand the article from different point of views. It’s my new favorite app.

Just...ok ,

Great news app

I’ve been using the quartz daily brief app for a while and I really like it but i think this one is even better. So far the comments have been thoughtful and informative and the featured articles have been good. Would (do) recommend.

News with knowledge

I used to use lots of news apps everyday, switching between them trying to find the best stories. Tiresome.

I’ve been a huge quartz fan for a long time, and they gave me just what I wanted. Curated news, expert commentary, and a great community!
