Fligoo Launches FreshFeed: Mobile App That Delivers Fresh and Entertaining Content for the Time-Strapped Generation

FreshFeed Crushes Boring News Aggregators With Personalized Content in Bite-Sized Pieces

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2015) - Fligoo, a San Francisco-based mobile technology company, today announced the launch of its newest mobile app, FreshFeed. This app will deliver entertaining and relevant content to your mobile device by actively learning what type of content you enjoy the most and always providing something fresh for you to check out.

FreshFeed is based on a content discovery engine that pulls interests from Facebook so every time you open the app, you have fresh and trending videos, blogs, stories, GIFs, news, etc. that evolve based on what you're into. FreshFeed's app is built so you can easily share content with your friends via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest and helps you discover what's trending among people with similar interests around the world.

"Who has time to scroll through hundreds of articles and videos that may or may not apply to you when you only have two-to-five minutes to catch up on relevant topics on-the-go in the first place," said CEO & Co-Founder Lucas Olmedo. "We wanted to create a super cool app that gives you relevant and entertaining content in a way that is easily consumed and shared."

FreshFeed allows you to log-in through Facebook and pulls content from a variety of top-rated sites including YouTube, Vimeo, TicketFly, Yahoo! News, Medium, and many more. Once you join, FreshFeed builds a Personality Wheel that breaks down your interests -- tracking, for example, if you're a music lover, artist, film/TV buff, news junkie or traveler.

As your interests evolve, your Personality Wheel will change as well, giving you a real-time snapshot of where your interests are trending.

The FreshFeed app offers entertainment, news, activities and product sections that cover the hottest trends and most-read topics in an easy to read format. The app is built for on-the-go millennials who have those two to five minutes of downtime throughout the day and are looking to get caught up on what's trending in their world.

"This isn't a boring news aggregator," said CTO and Co-Founder Marcos Martínez. "Our machine learning algorithm enables us to evolve with our users' tastes and interests. As a result, we are able to recommend personalized and fresh content to our users."

The app is available for both the iOS and Android platforms in the US, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. You can download the app from the iOS App Store & Google Play here: https://app.adjust.io/l3tt0a and here: https://app.adjust.io/5ww0mi.
