Planet GoGo is an innovative lock-screen app, developed by a duo of Indian entrepreneurs, that is designed to reward Android users for their news reading activity.

The lock-screen app is intended to make it easier than ever for users to access a content platform that enables them to access casual news in their local language. It makes use of a swipe-based interface wherein users who swipe right access new pieces of news, while swiping left redirects the user to the news page. Left-wipes earn the user points which they can redeem for cellphone recharging and post-paid bills.

The service is innovative in that it supports six regional languages, important in a multilingual country like India. In doing so, it brings casual news to a greater segment of the population.
