'Blockfeed' is a new app that curates news stories based on a user's exact location. With the advent of the digital age, many consumers feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of news available. This app is designed for those who want to streamline their reading habits.

Blockfeed is an aggregation and distribution platform that uses various algorithms in order to scan different news sources. These sources include mainstream media outlets as well as local news sources. Unlike other news apps, Blockfeed uses geolocation technology to pull articles from local sources. The articles retrieved are then organized by date, category and popularity, thereby making it easier for users to find what they are looking for.

The hyper-local news app makes it easier for users to find the stories and issues that specifically pertain to them.
