"There is no definitive source for Millennials to receive 'their news,'" says Shaun Neff, co-founder of Tumbleweed. "We wanted to find a way to crack the Millennial news code that would not only get the younger generation interested and talking about news, current events, lifestyle and entertainment stories but also allow them to share with their friends in a personalized way to spark conversation."
To accomplish this, Tumbleweed gathers and translates the most important stories of the day into a beautiful bite-sized image based feed that is editable and sharable. Users can add their own spin on the news by creating #Newsart with the app's drawing tools, stickers and even create their own stickers. Once personalized, simply share the news that interests you with friends via social media, text or email. The news feed is updated in real time and stories will disappear in 24 hours providing the most up to date news. PRESS HERE to see a preview of the app.
"We've created THE place for Millennials to find credible, relevant news that can then be customized and shared to create a conversation; a tool to spread knowledge and information in a new and fun way," says co-founder Cisco Adler.
The Media Insight Project's – an initiative of the American Press Institute and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research – recently did a study on How Millennials Get News. One of the many findings from this study illustrated that "news and information are woven into an often continuous but mindful way that Millennials connect to the world generally, which mixes news with social connection, problem solving, social action, and entertainment."
Tumbleweed is curated, credible news you can edit and share. The new mobile news app specifically geared towards the millennial generation is the brain child of entrepreneurs Shaun Neff and Cisco Adler. Tumbleweed's visually aesthetic and simple user experience make sharing the latest news stories quick and entertaining with the #NewsArt feature. Select a story, personalize it with the app's drawing tools, stickers and even create your own stickers before sharing the news that interests you with your friends via social media, email or text. Download Tumbleweed for FREE from the App Store.
