'Mic' is the name of an innovative smartphone app that is designed to make it possible for users to enjoy a high-quality and convenient newsreading experience by taking greater advantage of the precious real estate that is the lockscreen on their iPhone.

Effectively a revamped and updated version of the popular MicCheck app, Mic is designed to offer bite-sized chunks of news that are specifically targeted towards people who are on the go and might not want to put in the time and effort it takes to read a Pulitzer Prize-winning piece of long-form journalism.

Rather, Mic takes the approach of making newsreading a quick experience, with the unbeatable convenience of lockscreen displays helping people to get the most out of the app with minimal effort.
