News Scanner is an objective news aggregator, that simply displays all the days news stories from across your selected news outlets, and groups articles that cover the same events, into your 'TOP' news section.

Seeing all the different interpretations of an event, gives you a better understanding of what has actually happened, and teaches you that there is no such thing as a definitive truth, there are only relative viewpoints.

The matching algorithm is purposefully 'non-intelligent'. We don't tailor the matched articles to you, we don't promote certain articles, or specific news outlets, we don't treat any article as any more important than any other. We simply match articles that have a certain number of words and phrases in common, and are therefore deemed to cover the same story. We then show you these groups of matched articles, in horizontal columns of news stories.
This way, in the app you first see the stories, and you get a sense of their importance (if they are being covered by a lot of outlets), but then you can see how each outlet is reporting on the story, and decide who you want to trust.

News Scanner also encourages you to read articles on subjects that interest you, that come from agencies you wouldn't normally read. Even if you strongly disagree with the reporting in the article, you will be much better informed as to why you disagree with the article, and be much better equipped to engage with people who you thought you disagreed with, because now you know where they got their opinions from.
