KlipperApp – Read Faster, Learn More

Thousands of news articles are published each minute online. A breaking news update is followed up by a celebrity report, which is posted just before a feature article on political trends. What’s the secret to keeping up with the constant barrage of digital news? KlipperApp offers a solution.

KlipperApp is a feed reader that summarizes news articles without losing context or relevance. Start by searching for specific news feeds. When you land on a particular source (like TechCrunch or PandoDaily, for example) KlipperApp will provide you with a list of the most recently posted articles, each with a one sentence description. Using a mix of natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, KlipperApp runs each article through its proprietary algorithm and delivers you with short summaries of the content. KlipperApp’s algorithm can actually pick out which lines from an article have the most information about the topic at hand. The summaries that KlipperApp provides are generally one paragraph in length, and they’re presented on a clean, basic screen that’s free of clutter or distraction.

When a particular article peaks your interest, click on the headline to be taken to the original source. KlipperApp works equally well on the mobile web and desktop. Mobile apps for iOS and Android devices are coming soon.
