Preparing for post-Disrupt letdown once TechCrunch's conference closes tonight after the awarding of the Disrupt cup? Don't fret, the TechCrunch team has got you covered! Today, on stage, the team unveiled the new TechCrunch iPad app which is now available to download from the iTunes store.
We understand that news is most valuable to readers when they can explore differing perspectives and then put it into broader context. Keeping this idea at front of mind, the team designed the app to be the ultimate research tool – not just a TechCrunch newsfeed.
Integrating TechCrunch articles, Crunchbase profiles and even content from other publishers, the app encapsulate everything going on in the nonstop tech world right in one place. A sidebar built from Crunchbase profiles of the key players mentioned in stories gives readers a better understanding of the relationships at play within a given piece. Meanwhile, content from other authoritative publishers helps provide a holistic view of the story and what it means for the industry as a whole.
Another key feature of the app is our trending news section. Instead of just pulling what's most popular, the feature filters stories by comments, page views and social shares to determine an article's "heat and velocity," giving readers an idea of a topic's potential impact across various social platforms.
