    "Follow stories, stay in the know"

    Breaking News is a simple yet original and well-crafted proposal by NBC News Digital. Its main purpose isn't provide news about everything but only the news you are interested in. By letting you choose topics and single events to follow it soothes the noise in your news feed.

    Thus, you can design your own feeds by bookmarking topics or news events. In fact, that's one of the strongest points of Breaking News: you can follow stories the same way you follow people, get push notifications when an update comes up and read all the history entries. If you are interested in a given topic, you can know what's happened since the very beginning.

    If you are concerned about walls of text, no sweat! Every story's update is like a tweet. A curated and summarized pill of information that makes easier stay in the loop at a quick glance. In addition, you can check eyewitness photos and videos from breaking events.

    There are a bunch of extra features: check where news are happening on a map, place homescreen widgets for a faster access to information, customize alerts and save topics for later reviewing.

    Breaking News provides a straightforward way to stay in the loop.
