"I set SkyGrid up to follow my favorite sports teams. It is also a centralized stop for CNN, CNBC, Yahoo, USA Today and other top news providers."
"SkyGrid 2.2 now allows users to select the Photo Grid view across all sections and provides a separate Following Grid for every source and topic being followed."
"The apps I relied on were Facebook, Gmail, Skygrid" [during Hurricane Irene]
"Flipboard has plenty of competition in the realm of news-aggregation apps, including New360, Pulse News, SkyGrid and Taptu."
"If you've ever wished there were a single site that pulled all your varied interests together in one place, SkyGrid could be your new best friend."
"Featuring a slick interface and that gives users the novel ability to follow hot particular topics and categories, SkyGrid is a solid, topic-based iPad newsreading app."
"SkyGrid's app has been particularly popular on the iPad, and is currently ranked in the top 10 as an iPad News App in the App Store, so the startup expects for the Android tablet to be popular among users."
"SkyGrid's technology helps news junkies filter information most relevant to them and provides tools for users to monitor stories that can break in any category and in any place across the globe."
"SkyGrid wisely recognizes that the new user's greatest barrier to entry will be finding and following topics. It now suggests a slew of news sources and topics, sorted by category, to get you started."
"You can follow topics like tech, and receive a realtime stream of news from tech news outlets. Skygrid even allows you to follow more detailed topics, like "Zynga games," for users who want to access news about a specific topic. You can also now follow news sites like TechCrunch or The New York Times."
"Skygrid has earned a favorite spot on my iPad for finding me news about things I'm interested in, but less knowledgeable or connected on. Today that got even better as Skygrid rolls out a new iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch app that is easier to use, more powerful, but does an even better job at helping you find the latest news."
SkyGrid Groups brings fans and celebrities (or brands or publishers) together in real time
SkyGrid, the creator of news filtering apps, today launched a free tool that gives public figures and organizations the ability to aggregate fan conversations.
"From the group owner's standpoint, this is a way to unite their social media presence and also target their messages much more specifically. Without SkyGrid Groups, a musician, for example, might send one message to all their fans on a Facebook Page or all the followers of their account on Twitter. SkyGrid reaches across those social networks, and it's also easy to create groups that are more specific."
SkyGrid made the 2011 OnMedia 100 Top Private Companies list under Consumer Services: Community Platform, alongside 13 other companies including Facebook, Indeed, Twitter, and Yelp.
SkyGrid's take is interesting because it doesn't want to reinvent the wheel for brands and celebrities in terms of social, but aims to be a hub for all social conversation and content sharing. And the fact that SkyGrid, which has raised $13 million in funding, already has a number of high-profile brands using its Groups platform certainly bodes well for the future success of the new product.
In the news category of the App Store, news readers such as Pulse, Flipboard and SkyGrid occupy five of the top 10 positions. Both Pulse and Flipboard say they have at least 500,000 users, while SkyGrid said it is poised to pass one million users during the first quarter of 2011.
SkyGrid (free on Apple devices) is a news-gathering app that filters information according to your tastes, and selects topics that are most quickly spreading across the Web. The app is garnering raves from iTunes users.
Using the startup's patented algorithm, Information Velocity; SkyGrid measures what news is spreading the fastest across the world, and brings that content directly to its apps.
[SkyGrid] all adds up to a must-have, custom news app for all news and topical research hounds who take their Android device with them on the go.
This app is elegantly put together: SkyGrid artfully gives you a quick snapshot of what's happening in the world in general, what's happening in the world in different categories and THEN most importantly, what's happening in regards to your own personal interests.
If you are a news junkie like me and use an Android phone you might want to check out SkyGrid. SkyGrid collects news based on specified topics from a number of web sites on the Internet.
I consider SkyGrid to be one of the top news readers in the App Store. Why? It's very efficient and becomes quite handy for anyone that likes to be aware of what's happening now in the world of news.
SkyGrid, which offers a powerful business news aggregator, has developed a compelling iPad app that makes accessing realtime news content simple.
