Friends - Follow your friends to see what they’re reading. This way you can keep up with what your friends find compelling, nuanced, and important.

Search - Find exactly what you’re looking for with a specific search term. We take into account things like reading level and title quality to show you only the useful results.

Daily read notification - If you like, get notified daily with a special find on something related to what you've been reading.

Rate - Rate with adjectives which help us better understand your taste. Instead of emotions, our ratings are derived from criteria like objectivity, importance, and convincingness. Above all, this keeps out sensationalism and improves quality.

Follow - Keep informed on whatever your passions are—it's limitless. We have over 100k topics available, so whatever your obsession is, we've got you covered. Tap the plus icon on the top right of the home screen to make your own custom feed.

Control your feed. Discover more. Gem’s recommendations are based on exactly what you want to see. Choose a feed topic, adjust filters for popularity, content type, and writing style, and then rate specific recommendations. You’re in full control. As your preferences change, so does your Gem feed—it’s as unique as you are.

We’re concerned about the food we put in our bodies, and ought to think the same way about the information we put in our minds. As with the food industry exploiting the allure of sugar, much of today’s digital media exploit amusement and outrage for clicks. That’s why we made Gem, to cut through the junk.

It’s such a simplistic but yet very straightforward app to use.

The fact your able to narrow it down exactly to what area of topics you’d prefer to see rather than having to scroll through so many articles or sites or websites to find something direct (or of the similar topic). It makes the search engine of many news apps seems sooutdated.

This is much more relatable to the younger generation of people who have better understanding of how technology works.

It has the duality of being able to read the article but also the option for text to speech function.

The ability to control what I want to read is wonderful.

Elegant app that discovers high quality articles and curates them for you based on your interest. Really amazing experience, feels frictionless by eliminating the frustration I’ve normally felt looking for content I’d like to read.
