BANGALORE, India, Aug. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- No single app or newspaper provides you all the information in the world, but Gotit! saves your time by providing you specific information you care about most as much as possible in the shortest time.

Gotit! is one stop for all you wish to know

While news apps are scrambling to push the happenings, YirgaLab, an indie app developer, is looking for a simple and special way to get information more efficiently. After 3 months of market research and beta testing, they released a bite-size news app - Gotit! - for busy professionals, available on Google Play with 4.5 star rating.

Most news apps give generic sections like sports, news and entertainment. Gotit! gathers the most interesting and attractive topics online and offline in one app for consumers to subscribe to, like:

  • Twitter's trending tags
  • New phone launched in India
  • Big news of large companies
  • New products using AI tech
  • Upcoming great tech events in Bangalore

Unlike a daily newspaper, it covers 80+ specific topics varying from trending restaurants around to the big news in India and around the world. After subscribing to the topics, the app starts the tracking work and updates users personalized feeds when it gets the latest results.

Users will find the option to receive a notification upon adding a topic. If they'd like to receive a timely notification about a topic, they won't want to miss it.

What's the difference between a generic section and a specific topic? According to YirgaLab, even when you get into a generic section, users are still chasing down their interests. If users are interested in AI technology, for example, it takes time and great effort to collect related news from different sources. In Gotit!, users subscribe to the topic and leave the tracking work to the app. It is a great move.

The UI is similar for Google alert users. Google alert monitors topics and sends email updates directly to user's inbox based on their choice of query or topic. However, the topics in Gotit! are more specific. Take a celebrity for instance, users will get all news like music, events or gossip about the celebrity if you add their name as an alert. In Gotit!, users can subscribe to "New music videos from celebrities" if they are just interested in the music. On the other side, Google alerts are Google results. Gotit! tracks both online news and offline events. That's to say, it includes updates that Google search engine does not include.

Another feature distinguishes Gotit! from others is the crisp format of the feeds. The sentences under topics are short facts only. Editors select and rewrite every piece of news to put them in a straight-forward way that users can read the information effectively and instantly.

Gotit! is one stop for all you wish to know. You get most of things you search on Chrome in this app. Check it out in Play Store!
