Understand important news in a moment with: • Reports written for you by real human editors • Curated opinions from voices that matter • Timelines that provide thorough background • No infinite feed – just the news you need • 100% ad-free! News is really important, but following it can be stressful and overwhelming. Brief is a subscription news service that fits the most important news stories into the little free moments you have each day. To do that, our team does a bunch of work to give you just the information you need to understand complex news stories. For example, every news report comes with a timeline so you can catch up with how the story developed. We also customize each report based on what you already know, so you only get the new stuff. That’s how we keep it brief without dumbing it down. No one wants to get stuck in a bubble, so we pull together perspectives from voices that matter – politicians and experts across the spectrum – and let them speak for themselves. If you want to take a break for a couple days, the most important stories will be waiting for you when you come back. You can pick up right where you left off. We think you’ll love Brief, and we can’t wait for you to check it out!
This app makes reading the news a quick, good and reliable experience. The ”How did we get here?” tab is just unbelievable good. The amount of data and understanding you can get from reading the news using Brief is just incredible. Phenomenal job, I am excited to see how the future treats this project! 10 out of 10
Literally the first article I read had an “opinions that matter” section that was nothing but leftists and RINO’s. Mitt Romney and Ilhanomar, no Ted Cruz no Rand Paul. This is another liberal rag masquerading as a “non bias objective source”. NPR and CNN make the same claim. (scroll thru the reviews here, all of the low ratings are people calling out the bias)
Brief editors provide succinct summaries of the day’s top news stories, presented in a pleasing and easy-to-use interface. You can always go further in-depth with links to full length source articles from reputable publications, quotes from political and industry leaders, and a timeline which gives historical context of the specific issue. The customizable home-screen widget and notification options round out the user experience to make it stand apart from other news aggregator apps - making it an ideal compliment to my paid “long read” publication news apps.
Just subscribed and the app won’t load.
Love this app for its simple, fact driven news
News apps / websites are just placeholders for ad revenue today and have so much fluff it’s impossible to get facts / details straight from just one. Brief let’s me view what’s important as a quick glance. I have no problem paying for this service, I hope it continues being unbiased and high quality.
2020 has been a year where it’s been hard to balance the desire to stay informed with a desire to stay sane. It’s so easy to get sucked in with doom-scrolling or pushed further to one side with politically-biased reporting (even from the “best”). I love that I get the most important news, it tells me only what I need to know to stay informed, provides various perspectives below, and I’m free to make up my own mind on the “meaning”. I no longer feel angry towards the “other side” when I read the news because I’m told a more full story. Bonus: they respond quickly to messages and are quick to fix any mistakes. 100% recommend making this your primary news source.
I Briefly had this app(45 seconds) immediately deleted when they tried to rob me by wanting $59 a month. Is y’all ignorant?
Very condensed but with commentary from relevant parties to give credence. Smooth and easy UI. I can get through the news and feel informed without taking a day.
