Good Noows is a web application that allows users to build a personal news stream tailored to their specifications. Instead of wading through the many news stories, media and websites updated every day (and in many cases, even more often than that), users can create a content stream on Good Noows and get only the news they want and need. Uses log in and can begin setting filters for their feed. The filter options include topics, sources. Next the user can select from a list of visual styles to determine how their feed is presented. The user can select tags and browse through various categories, including headlines, sports, culture and entertainment and more. A search tool is also available for users looking for specific content. Good Noows is available in English, German, Italian, French and Spanish.
Good Noows was launched in 2010 to provide users with a better way to get their daily news stories. The site provided numerous features from the start, including unique visual styles, notebook clipping features, feed search, popularity sorting feature and more. Users could also select from more than 500 predefined sources to supply the content for their news feed. Today Good Noows provides many users with a valuable resource to get their daily dose of news content.
Good Noows helps users compile all of their news content into one manageable feed. The internet provides everyone with an enormous number of information resources that are updated daily. It can become very difficult to manage them all. Good Noows offers a service much like other news feeds, however it provides more options to allow users to customize their content.
The Good Noows website presents a rather serious design featuring a lot of open space so users can focus on content rather than eye candy. That is not to say that the application looks poorly designed. In fact it is designed quite well for its purpose. Users can select from numerous layout options that present news in rows, columns or however the user prefers. Each item includes a thumbnail image, headline and a few lines from the article so the user can determine which articles they really want to read.
In order to access Good Noows, the user must log in using a third party account. The site has chosen four of the most popular options, which is a nice touch to give users more flexibility. Users can log in using a Google, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn account. This is done by clicking on the corresponding icon found at the center of the homepage. The user can also click the larger sign in button which will cause the same icons (only larger) to slide into view.
Good Noows offers a helpful, but simple service. If the application’s owners wanted to charge a fee for the service, there would need to be additional functions added to convince the average user to pay. Luckily, Good Noows is available to anyone for free. Users are able to access all current features without paying anything for the service.
Good Noows is an excellent tool for anyone who frequently reads news. Users who tend to visit multiple websites each day to get their news can benefit by consolidating their efforts into one news feed. The extra customizations make Good Noows an appealing option for most users.
