News Republic Goes Global

News Republic, the iPhone and Android app dedicated to news, which has almost 200,000 users in Europe, has announced its worldwide rollout. The app contains features and live news updates on sport, business, technology and celebrities, from leading news agencies and the web.

Users can filter and organise the news to closely follow their favourite subjects, people or places, using a system called TagNav that tracks the themes and semantic meanings of all stories and articles, and tags them with keywords, enabling users to create their own news folders to keep up to date with all those topics that matter to them most.

With over 120,000 topics covered, users can also search and reference related articles and themes across the web to discover more on any topic they choose in an instant. Any story can be shared with friends by email, Twitter or Facebook in one click.

News Republic is free to download from the Apple App Store and Android Market.
