The NewsBytes aims is personalized and hyper-local (location of reader) news. Presently, raised funds from GDF Accelerator, Mr.Praveen and working under mentorship of Mr. yogesh Andlay (Founder of Nucleus Software) and Dr. Srikanth Sundarrajan (Helion Ventures). This one year old APP is appears to be competitor for In Shorts.
Overall, in our opinion, best of this APP is that it tag all historical news and facilitate the reader to understand the news better. However, at present, news items or stories are less. In the present structure, this APP is best suited for competitive exam preparation rather than general news readers.
