Newsprompt for Chrome
Read breaking news in the "new tab" page

Newsprompt is a free Chrome extension which displays the latest news from across the world, every time you open your new tab page.

The add-on scans 1,000+ top websites covering broad and niche categories, uses smart algorithms to remove any duplicates, and presents you with the results: a picture, headline, source and date per story.

Just skimming through the recent results will get you up-to-date in seconds. Click anything interesting and the source article opens in new tab.

A sidebar has more specific links, covering trending stories (Highly Read, Highly Shared, Recommended) and specific topic areas (World, US News, Business, Entertainment, Sports, Technology, Science, Health).

And when you've finished browsing, there's also a general Yahoo!-powered search box to find your next page.

Verdict:

Newsprompt isn't as configurable as we'd like. Or at all, really. If you decide you're most interested in sports stories, for instance, why can't the extension display those by default?

Still, if you're just looking for general news then Newsprompt delivers, presenting you with all the latest stories across a host of sources and categories.

A clean extension for reading news

Learning from behavior as oppose to configuration

Posted by: Prashant Maskara, 06 June 2016 10:13

Thank you for reviewing our chrome extension. The plan of the extension is to learn from the user's browsing behavior over time and show him what he have been reading more and more as oppose to having to configure. That said, recommendations are currently "a work in progress" and not at the level at which we want them to be.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
