Cu­rate and share your best con­tent with new iOS app

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Shout is a new app aimed at help­ing you cu­rate and share the best ar­ti­cles, videos, recipes and other pieces of the Web for your­self and oth­ers. The app func­tions as a sort of cross be­tween a book­mark­ing ser­vice such as Pocket and a cu­ra­tion ser­vice such as Flip­board. You can save ar­ti­cles to your own pri­vate list right from your mo­bile browser, or opt to make a pub­lic list that oth­ers can see and fol­low. You can also fol­low other peo­ple’s pub­lic lists in the app, and it’s easy to send an email di­gest of any par­tic­u­lar list to your fol­low­ers. Shout also makes it easy to share to other so­cial net­works.

The app is avail­able for iOS de­vices and also has a plug-in for Chrome for those who want to save and share from their com­put­ers. Shout is still a rel­a­tively new prod­uct and, like any so­cial-me­dia plat­form, will prob­a­bly im­prove over time as it gets more users. For those ex­cited about read­ing and shar­ing ar­ti­cles about the things they love, it’s a wor­thy ad­di­tion to your so­cial toolbox.

Free, for iOS.
