There are thousands of online news sources in Kenya from individual blogs to mainstream newspapers’s sites and as a user, browsing from one site to another and from blog to another totally cumbersome.
Build on RebelMouse, an agregation platform for brands and media companies to create participatory, data-driven and social digital content by Ngunjiri Kenyua, Trending website aggregates news from several websites so users can simply read and share them via their mobile devices.
Kenyua says Trending presents users with a dynamic and informative page that cuts through the noise and delivers all angles of top trending stories in Kenya and the world in real time.
“Trending.co.ke endeavors to aggregate and distribute the most popular Kenyan digital content. In a move to further grow our distributorship, we have recently deployed an Android App, available on Google Play for free,” Kenyua told TechMoran.
It’s simple, but for people who visit various sites for news, it’a pefect tool. We haven’t used it for long and we shall compare it with local news aggregator apps such as ivihivi, Habari and NewsDrift and see how it rates.
