Ratings and Reviews
Best format for consuming news out today.
There are tons of apps, e-mail subscriptions, feed-builders, and so on available at our disposal today, all essentially claiming that they “make news more ‘snackable’ since no one has time to sit and read the news in long form.” I’m paraphrasing, but that’s essentially the pitch. Well, I’ve tried many of the options out there (TheSkimm, Morning Brew, The Hustle, Smart News, just to name a few) and Sip here does it the best, IMHO.
For me...all those other services, despite their claims, STILL write too much. Because they expound upon every current event in their delivery, even in short paragraph form, it’s often when I find myself not even being able to finish half of the downloads they send every morning before work. Most of the time, those emails get deleted or buried or filed away and never touched again. And those apps never get opened.
Sip does it how it should be done across ALL areas of interest (not just tech) by only giving a single sentence, giving the user the option to tap through and read further if and only if that sentence is of interest. And then, taking it a step further, they break summaries of the articles down into bite-sized sentences with only one sentence on a page at a time. Because of this format, I now find myself checking Sip every day WANTING to read the latest.
Keep up the great work, gang. You’re setting a good example for the others.
Pretty good start
It feels like moments from Twitter, which was probably the impetus for Sip. I dig the simple interface and can see myself using this app.
My first suggestion is to add the ability to swipe down when you’re in a story to dismiss it. I am so used to that interaction from twitter (when viewing a photo) that it is driving me nuts having to reach up to the top left to tap the X icon.
Keep up the good work!
Bite sized summaries are good for notifications, but when I open the app I expect to read everything you have to say at a glance, especially since it can all fit on one screen. Making me tap for each sentence is extremely obnoxious. Making the "back" area a small sliver on the left side of the screen instead of giving it half the screen is equally obnoxious, ensuring I have to reach all the way across a huge screen--in essence, the developers of this app thought long and hard about how to make reading the news a more difficult, frustrating and obnoxious experience, and executed their plan flawlessly. Hats off to you and the guys from Quartz for taking an existing product and finding new and innovative ways to make it worse.
