Near You Now are working to provide local news feeds to your mobile, wherever you are. Near You Now will recognise your location and personalise the news feeds you receive on your application.
Near You Now makes media local.
Catalyst have been engaged to assist in the development of NearYouNow’s mobile application. The role of the team involved:
Identifying and selecting local newspapers across the UK to add to the NearYouNow feed
Add these feeds onto the ‘back-end’ of the software (RSS Feeds).
Test whether these feeds work and record that. Referring faulty RSS feeds to colleagues to use content extractor software to see if that fixes it.
The role is likely to change and expand as the project is still evolving.
