'Pipes' is an iOS app that provides summarized news articles to the fast-paced person who just wants the gist. With a news feed similar to that of Facebook, the clean interface makes it easy to find information of interest. By summarizing the four main points of an article in a few sentences, Pipes provides short-attention spanned millennials and busy businessmen and women with their desired sound bytes.
The font, size and background are all customizable and there is an integrated 'Recomendation Engine.' Finally, Pipes can be adapted to any Apple product, including the Apple watch. With many summarized news apps arriving on the scene, like ones that specially curate based on interests or customizable online magazines, it's clear that there are many new alternatives to main media sites to garner information.
