Launches iPad App Version of Its Social Curation Platform

David Needle of Tab Times recently wrote, "Back in the mid-1980s, Apple's Macintosh helped launch a new industry, desktop publishing. Can the iPad similarly be the device of choice for a new generation of content creators? sure hopes so. The company [last week] released the first iPad app version of its social curation platform with an eye toward turning content consumers into content creators. 'It’s a publishing by curation platform. You can enrich content with your own insight,' co-founder and CEO, Guillaume Decugis, said in a demo interview with TabTimes."

Needle continues, " for iPad lets you find articles, videos, visuals and other content on niche or so-called 'long tail' topics in two ways; either the established community of 'passionate curators' or the system’s 'dynamic topic suggestion engine'. The suggestion engine is kind of’s secret sauce. The proprietary search engine is powered by big-data semantic technology that the company says crawls and qualifies more than 10 million web pages daily. also features a community of curators who have already indexed and shared over 50 million pieces of content on topics of interests."
