The News Pro app from Microsoft feeds you stories based on your job. Microsoft launched News Pro, its new iOS application that uses news feeds from Bing in order to provide customized news centered on the user’s career.
At the beginning, News Pro appears to be like Apple News, Flipboard or other news applications that use similar methods to suggest stories centered on your passions. However, News Pro brings a different perspective on that approach by using the client’s job headline to make these recommendations.
After you initially open the application, you have a choice of linking the program with either a LinkedIn or Facebook account and after it is linked, the app shows relevant stories within its primary feed. The application is still fairly and does not provide many functions other than a series of extra customization options.
But one important thing that is rather useful is a “speedy” choice, which reminds you of the built-in “Reader View” feature found in Apple’s Safari browser. Once you tap on a story link, you can select “Speedy” to receive a form of the content that removes ads or other things that will slow down sites, so articles will load faster and in easily readable formats.
The News Pro app is operated by Microsoft’s Bing News and there are a good number of subjects to follow, even if the app shows various news based on a user’s profession and this can alter the kinds of news you read.
While it is understandable why a client’s career could represent an appropriate indicator about the sorts of stories they might want to see, News Pro’s recommendations do not make a lot of sense in some people’s testing.
What is promising though is the fact that users can immediately unfollow the stories that the app select for them and they can shift go its suggestions by looking for particular subjects like sports activities, state policies and entertainment news.
Microsoft says that the program can also take your passions into consideration in its feeds, even if you will see few stories appropriate for your regular hobbies. The application is the newest venture coming from Microsoft’s Garage division, which is where the company features trial tasks developed by its experts.
Previous ideas have involved these days’ Mimicker alert application and an Invite program for arranging conferences. Given the trial characteristics of the application, it is not certain if the company might have other plans for this application, but its specialists say that they do plan to keep developing and enhancing the app after seeing the users’ preliminary reviews.
