A “Trove” is a customized list of curated news on topics that interest the creator. Each Trove can then be followed by anyone whom has similar interests. In a nutshell that boils up what the new iOS app does. Trove streams news from thousands of sources and curators handpick stories and interests for themselves and others.
A Trove topic can be anything, already “Troves” exist for Sochi Olympics, Dogs, and Advancing Technologies, to name a few. The news categorization for topics that are wildly general and appealing to everyone such as World News, or something very narrow for the specific consumer, such as Marvel Comics. There is a Trove for everyone.
But how does it do it? The website tells us “Trove harvests articles from tens of thousands of RSS feeds. It analyzes each story, sorting by names, keywords, places and topics. The best stuff for you is sorted to the top. You’ll see some troves throughout the system that are labeled “by Trove.” These troves are our magical algorithm at work. But algorithms only go so far — the best troves are the ones curated by users who pick the best stories from the algorithm’s suggestions. Their picks go to the top of the trove, and their unique insights make Trove lively.”
Like any timeline stream, once you follow a Trove it pops on your homepage and in a newsletter so you can stay on top of your interests. Trove is available on the App Store for your iPad and iPhone.
