Newspy is a powerful news and social filter that helps you fight the information overload. By means of custom filter rules, Newspy brings to your attention only articles and posts regarding keywords, expressions and people you are interested in, from RSS sources or social networks like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Newspy is not intended to replace your favorite news reader or Twitter/Facebook client for casual reading, but to complement them as an efficient information monitoring tool.
Newspy can let you know fast when:
- some product or service is offered in Groupon, SlickDeals or your favorite deals/coupon sites
- a specific person posts something in a social network
- an important message arrives at your email inbox
- your preferred artist or team is in the news
- your stocks are mentioned in financial news
- a new job offer matches your skills
- a new review/article is published for a product
- a product you want is in stock again
- and much more!
To use Newspy you just need to:
1. Define the news sources to be checked periodically. This can include RSS Channels, your Twitter timeline, Facebook wall updates, LinkedIn network updates, Tumblr posts, Yammer updates and e-mail messages.
2. Create rules (keyword lists or expressions) that will be used to find relevant news and associate them to the sources.
Newspy will periodically fetch the latest news from all sources, retain only those that match your search rules, and consolidate them into a single stream.
