Tech news site Mashable has introduced a new Android app that incorporates the media company’s software Mashable Velocity, an algorithm that predicts when stories are about to go viral. The app alerts readers when a story picks up momentum and is likely to go viral to help give users a lead on the news. The app is available exclusively on the new Samsung Galaxy devices for the next week, before it becomes available on any Android device.
Here is more about the app from Mashable: “We know you like our responsive, adaptive website (thanks again for the massive amount of emails and tweets!), so we’ve implemented that design strategy within the app. It’s a beautiful design that responsively adapts to your device’s size, from a phone to a mini to an oversized tablet, so you can be assured the app will look great on whatever you’re carrying.”
This past May, Mashable released a Google Glass app which also uses Mashable Velocity.
