Perspecs is a new free app that curates the top news stories from a variety of established regional, national and international news sources. Unlike traditional aggregators and news curation services, Perspecs goes a step further and offers readers different opinions of the same story.
How these opinions are categorised can vary. For political stories this could be in the form of ‘left’, ‘background’, ‘right’. For review items the categories could be ‘negative’, ‘neutral’, ‘positive’.
Readers often stick to their regular sources of news therefore often only ever seeing one side of a story. Perspecs will give you the opportunity to see things from a different perspective and allow you to form your own informed opinion.
Perspecs will publish 1 edition per day and each edition will be packed with a variety of interesting and sometimes controversial topics. Most importantly, there will be 3 sides to every story.
At Perspecs we really value your feedback. If you would like to contact us, please visit http://www.perspecsnews.com/

Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic balanced news app
This app gives clear, balanced and neutral background information to current news stories as well as links to longer pro and con views from other media sources (which you cannot always access as a subscription may be needed). It’s an excellent resource
This is such a brilliant concept and couldn't be more useful given the current political climate.
Perspecs has quickly become my number one source of news - it's so easy to navigate and covers a wide range of global topics. It gets a full five stars from me!
A new way of getting the news
Fab app - love reading the #3Sides to every story and then making my own mind up based on the facts.
