Paper Boy Online App

By Thomas Jackson IV

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Paper Boy Online is a neural network news aggregator. A bot reads in RSS feeds and determines if articles are common.

The Paper Boy algorithm sorts articles in 3 different ways: events, related events, and event words.

If articles are common, the algorithm will place articles in the same event. If events seem related, then events will be "related events". Each event is derived from words found in the articles' description and title. Those words can then be chosen to see if other articles share the same words.

The app also includes ways of saving articles, events, and words. Plus, a share button to share Paper Boy Online links to the web site.

This is the "app" version of the web site "". There, you can sign in and enter in your own RSS feeds into the algorithm. Eventually, I want to offer unlimited custom RSS feeds; however, due to limited resources, its too soon to be determined.

Enjoy the app! Hopefully Paper Boy Online can enlighten your day with news. Over the next months I will seek ways to integrate with social networks and "new" tech that I wanted to implement.
