News on

the Go




Easier, Faster Access to News Should be a Way of Lifestyle

Read articles already downloaded to your phone

Don’t you ever wish you can utilize your time while waiting for a bus, stuck in a shopping line, or riding a subway by reading about what’s going on in world?

Don’t you wish to be notified for breaking news, emergencies, or national and weather alerts?

Don’t you ever wish not having to run to a news stand for papers on your already busy mornings?

Don’t you wish you can choose only the news you care about and jump to the articles of your interests without flipping through the oily pages and get your hands all dirty?

Manually update news whenever you want

Keyword search for articles and headlines

Choose only news categories that you want to read

BREW Development Experience: Reflections & Afterthoughts

Change frequency of news updates

One problem area we encountered was with finding a mobile news service provider.

You may be able to write the best mobile news application, but it won’t be successful without a good news provider.

Currently, there are few major news providers that deliver news in a format that can be easily interpreted by mobile devices.

Mobile news services are a new and develop-ing field with exciting possibilities.

Developing with the BREW API has been our pleasure.

With further develop-ment and better docum-entation, we believe BREW is on its way to becoming the platform for mobile phones.

As more developers begin to support the platform, we are excited to see what else is possible with BREW.

The BREW Solution: The News Stories You Want on Your Cellular Phone

  • Cool features and simple user interface get two thumbs up.
  • Get notified only when news you care about occurs
  • Alert method depends on user priority settings for each news category
  • Easily search for articles by headlines or keywords
  • E-mail articles from your cellular phone to yourself or your friends
  • Manually or automat-ically check for current news

NewsAlert – the newspaper for the next generation
