A chatbot that isn’t
Instead of headlines, you get messages, like you’d get from a friend, and you get to interact with them.
It looks like a chatbot, doesn’t it?
But it’s not.
Soon you’ll find you can’t really type anything into it, but you can choose from two predefined actions at the bottom of the screen to tell the app if you want to know more about a certain news item or if you’d like more news delivered.
There is no AI powering this interaction. Just an interface that reminds you of a chatbot, and keeps you up-to-date in an engaging and easily consumable manner.
So the whole app is basically just one screen that tells you the news and redirects you to the relevant news source if you want to read the whole text.
That, as you may have guessed, is not that hard to recreate:
Revolution is a month and €22 440 away
It’s a simple and elegant, but still pretty bold solution. And the fact that one just like it can be developed in a month, and for under €23 000 just makes it all the better.
