NewsNow Launches Free Sign-Up Services
Britain’s largest homegrown news aggregator launches personalised experience for registered users
London, UK: NewsNow, the UK’s leading homegrown aggregator of links to breaking news, has launched a new free service, allowing users to register, personalise the site, and gain access to new features.
NewsNow Managing Director, Struan Bartlett, explained:
“For some time, NewsNow users have been able to highlight and filter publications, access their most frequently read topics and revisit their article browsing history. But, these settings and records were tied to a single computer, and could not be shared between laptops, iPads, home and work PCs.
“Now all that has changed. By registering and logging into NewsNow, you can take your personalised NewsNow experience with you wherever you go. In addition, registered users can now bookmark their favourite topics and view them all on one screen.
“This is an exciting development for NewsNow, but is just the beginning. We have other registration features in the pipeline, including making the features now accessible on our 'classic' site available on our mobile phone-optimised web site.”
Registering with NewsNow is quick and easy: simply visit http://www.NewsNow.co.uk/register/ and you can be up and running in minutes.
