circaDo you read Google News looking for headlines just to see what is going on in the world. Then maybe you should check out Circa, it’s a new news app that is designed to give you a briefing on all of the news and headlines of the day in short summaries.

Like Summy, which was acquired by Yahoo and then absorbed into Yahoo’s app, Circa gives you news summaries for quick reading. Circa editors write summaries of what is going on in the world based on news headlines. You can follow a story and get push notifications when new facts are revealed, so that you don’t have to reread different articles over and over just to find out new developments. Check it out:

News articles and small screens just don’t play well together. Circa solves that problem by condensing the news and making it much easier to read while on-the-go. Tediously reading long articles just to stay up to date is a thing of the past with Circa’s factual and comprehensive, but to-the-point news coverage.

The free app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
