Unlike other news apps, the ThankThis News Reader enables you to have social impact with no-cost to you while you enjoy full-text news articles from your favorite sources.
Whether you're standing in line, waiting at the doctor’s office, or sitting at home, you’ll be able to get your news quickly and efficiently. And, by "thanking" any article you like, you collect points that you can donate to the cause or charity of your choice.
Google Reader fans - if you like Google Reader, you’ll probably like the fast access to content with the added benefit of helping causes. The application also features rapid headline display and featured images to provide both visual- and text-based context and increased readability.
Yahoo News fans - you’ll probably like the easy access to headlines with the added context of images in the reader view of the app. The application also features easy access to sharing buttons and tools in the menu, allowing you to tell others about the latest stories and headlines in an instant.
Sports fans will enjoy the ability to add many sources and view them by source in the app. With our easy “add” and “manage sources” interface, the application allows you to add news for all sports, professional leagues or teams, college leagues or teams, high school leagues or teams, or even local sports. Any team or league with news or other feeds can be accessed through the application.
Finance and stock picking aficionados, you can easily add feeds for your stocks, industry sectors, funds, or stock exchanges to the app. You can even use news feeds if they are available from Yahoo, Marketwatch, Motley Fool, Business Insider, or other sites. The key is that this application does not get in your way - it makes you more efficient at accessing your content AND you can help good causes and charities at the same time.
You can choose sources from our pre-loaded list or use our search function to find and add other sources. We use Google search to find the best sources if they aren’t in our pre-loaded list. You may also manually add sources not shown in the pre-loaded list or easily found via Google search. Sources can also be ordered and deleted from the application via an easy drag-and-drop interface in our “Manage Sources” area.
The ThankThis News Reader is in beta, so please send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make it even better. While the reading experience is intended to be ad-free, advertising may slip past our filters, and we need to hear from you if they do. Remember, you can save tons of time and help good causes by accessing news and content in an easy-to-scan and ad-free reading experience of many popular or specialty news sites.
You can learn more about ThankThis on the web at http://www.thankthis.com.
