New Israeli startup Briox Ltd went into public beta with the iPhone app, called Riversip. This free app gives you a quick way to be up-to-date on the “must-know” technology news items, on your own schedule.

Riversip is powered by what people talk about. Whenever you open it, it shows you the biggest news items that you might want to know about.

You can choose your own time-frame – and be on top of things no matter how often you check out the news, or how much reading time you have.

Riversip adapts the endless flow of technology news to your own pace, making it easy for you to stay on top of the news items that people are talking about. In less than a minute, you can be on top of the latest & greatest “must-know” items.

In less than a minute, you can be on top of the latest “must-know” items: Riversip is the app where you stop by to have a quick glimpse at the most important tech news of the day, the week, or the hour.

Technology news is actually the first among verticals we want to go after, offering a “News Without Noise” experience for each of them“. – told us Itamar Rogel from Briox – “One of these verticals is incidentally a local one here in Israel for Jewish news“.

So, what exactly do you get in Riversip?

  • No setup or learning time required. Fire Riversip for the first time – and immediately see what are the current “must-know” news in the technology world.
  • Catch up on your own schedule: You can choose your own time-frame in one tap, so you’ll be up-to-date no matter how often you’re checking things out.
  • Check out only the headlines – or go deeper: You can check out any news item’s coverage from the many sources which covered it. Seeing how different publications cover the same event from different angles was never so easy – and we believe it’s a surefire way to broaden your horizons.
  • Seen a topic of interest in the news? Drill down and get more focused items for that topic, from the most relevant sources.
  • It’s the quickest way to go deep without being overloaded with items – you always get the most relevant ones, in prioritized order.
  • No need to set up your sources and start looking for feeds! Riversip automatically picks the most relevant article for any real-world event and shows it to you – and it also learns what sources you prefer as you use the app, and shows coverage from them to you when it’s available.
  • Choose your favorite topics so you can easily stay on top of the things in the topics that matter to you. Then, with one tap you can switch between seeing the “World View” and seeing what’s up in your own universe of interests.

The best way to catch up after being in a vacation, a long offline weekend – or if you’ve simply been too busy.
