iPad Users Can Get Their Fwix

The iPad app seeks to give users the feel of a local newspaper, displaying stories in a map format and allowing users to access news by location and topic, as well as to share news via Facebook, Twitter, and email, according to TechCrunch.

Real-time local newswire Fwix locates, optimizes, categorizes, and distributes local news in 175 markets in the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The company reached a deal last month with The New York Times Co. to add its hyper-local content to the newspaper publisher’s Internet properties.
