What’s New

Version 1.11

We're currently hard at work completely rebuilding the Daily Brief adding a tonne of new content and features that will be releasing later this year. For now though, just a small bug fix.

- This update fixes a timezone bug that caused multiple notifications to be delivered in the morning. Big thanks to those that reported this issue to us!

Factual and to the point

Pithy articles and insights spanning issues and events across a wide range of countries and global regions that are often overlooked by other media outlets and analysts. A refreshingly simple way each morning to keep in touch with key happenings across the world.

Not the economist but still a good app

A good app if you want a brief snapshot covering today’s events and political developments. Nice broad range of coverage, not just the same mainstream stories you’ll read elsewhere. It is of course very similar to the Economist’s ‘Espresso’, (which is more reputable and does a better job). Sometimes Daily Brief is a bit too predictive for my taste. It would do better if its analysis stuck more to the facts. If you read long enough you’ll notice it often gets things wrong. Occasionally it’s completely empty (maybe they just forgot that day?). Still a good 2nd fiddle to the Economist to round out your daily briefs
