Circa San Francisco, CA

Circa is designed to serve as a daily brief of top stories, condensed into bullet points for quick reading on mobile devices. Rather than summarize, Circa take stories and break them into core elements -- facts, statistics, videos and images -- and add context to certain points. Rather than a long narrative, this offers a series of points that you can get through in seconds rather than minutes. Circa's breaking news notifications are like a live blog of essential information, with each new, relevant item pushed to subscriber devices. Rather than just sending a headline, Circa editors create a "stub" with the basic points of the story. Users can "follow" stories to receive automated updates, adding new elements to stories as they evolve without rehashing what has been previously written.
