Headlines

 

High Concept Statement

Headlines takes a unique approach to news by showing the most important part: the article headline.

 

Status Quo

Millennials find themselves reading the headline of a news article instead of reading whole articles. This often leads to people reading through multiple websites to find daily news.

 

Competition

Most competition is news apps such as CNN or Fox News, which provide full-length articles. Furthermore, apps such as Reddit provide a similar concept of summarized articles within the title of the post.

 

Solution

Headlines challenges the status-quo of news through aggregating news headlines from local, state-wide, country-wide, and world-wide news into one app. Users are able to scroll endlessly through headlines reading new and interesting news articles that are trending worldwide.

 

Revenue Model

Headlines makes their revenue primarily off of advertisements which would be displayed in-app. Furthermore, users could purchase an add-free version of headlines.
