My parents are fond of reading newspapers ( Even I am). But in the current covid situation, it is not safe to read. There are other news apps but they do not sort the news as per topics in their apps. Thus, reading becomes a bit tedious. Also, there are a lot of ads and notifications which distract and irritate you.
Keeping all these things in mind, I decided to make a broker kind of platform that will help.
What it does
It basically scrapes topic-wise information from the inshorts.com website and displays them by sorting them as per the user's demand.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
This was the first time I was working on scraping web information and it turned out well for me. Also, I needed to complete it in a given time interval was another challenge.
What's next for News Broker
I am planning to use login-logout for this app and recommend news to the users based on their search history using machine learning.
