TEL AVIV, Israel, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
NewsTab, is a smart newsreader that lets users follow their favorite news sources and news topics, surfacing the best stories on those news feeds. It bridges the gap between modern news aggregators, such as Flipboard (smart, beautiful, but closed with limited coverage of news sources and regions), and open RSS tools like Feedly (which support any RSS feed, but have limited intelligences and a geeky, "inbox" UX).
NewsTab is the only service that combines an intuitive RSS catalog (indexing millions of feeds in over 130 regions and languages worldwide), with smart news surfacing algorithms. All with intuitive and slick UI. The service supports any RSS feed and integrates with Google News, to make it easy to follow any news topics.
NewsTab was first launched on Android in October 2016, with great feedback from users and bloggers and became very popular with international reader and expats looking to follow local news sources. Current iOS launch completes its cross platform offering and the service now supports all major platforms (Web, Android app, iOS app, Chrome app and Chrome extension).
Additional iOS apps (Tablet, Watch, TV) are expected in the near future.
Together with this iOS launch, NewsTab is also announcing a new set of intelligent algorithms improving its news surfacing capabilities. These are based on proprietary engine, applying machine learning techniques on multiple signals, such as read patterns, popularity, publisher reach and social sharing.
"We are excited by this iOS release," said Founder & CEO, Arnon Catalan. "Which is making us a truly cross-platform service. The combination of a multi-platform offering with our smart surfacing algorithms and slick UI, are making NewsTab the top choice among modern newsreaders."
NewsTab is headquartered in Tel Aviv, with a mission to create the ultimate news reading experience on all digital platforms. NewsTab is owned and managed by Arnon Catalon, an accomplished entrepreneur who previously co-founded / lead Screenovate (a leader in smartphone virtualization) and Gteko (eSupport leader, acquired by Microsoft for $110 million). Arnon also headed Microsoft's PC Health product group. Newstab raised $1.5M in seed financing from top angel investors including Paul Maritz (previously the CEO of VMware), and Eyal Levy (previously the CEO of Pelephone, Israel telecommunications giant).
