Facebook launches Notify news app


Facebook has released an app for iPhone owners called Notify that gathers news and entertainment stories into one regularly updated feed. CNN, Fox News and the Washington Post are among the 70 organisations providing stories to the app. Anyone who installs the app chooses their own mix of sources that will post notifications to their feed. It competes directly with Twitter's Moments and Apple's News service, which create feeds of breaking stories. The feed of stories could be customised by choosing from several different categories, including movies, music, sport, news and celebrities, Facebook stated in a blogpost. There are also categories for daily meditation exercises and another from the Getty picture library showing iconic images from the same day in history. Currently, the Notify service is available only to iPhone-owning Facebook members in the United States. Facebook has not said when or if the service will be extended to other parts of the world or other operating systems.
