Abridge News Description
Each day, our team (of humans) picks an interesting, debate-worthy topic. Often these are political, but sometimes, we cover sports, tech, and business. Then, our team combs the internet for four unique and interesting op-ed pieces rooted in fact, albeit sometimes a subset of facts. These op-eds make arguments on different sides of a debate. We arrange these topics side-by-side in our app, and you engage with them via our "spectrum" feature.

- Swipe LEFT for more left-leaning arguments
- Swipe RIGHT for more right-leaning arguments

We sort and categorize opinion pieces based on the substance of the arguments made, NOT the publication's reputation. For example, a conservative op-ed from a traditionally liberal publication would be placed on the right side of our spectrum.

After we select an opinion and place it on the spectrum, a team member carefully reads the article and pulls out the three most salient points to form a bullet point list that is quick and easy to read.

For each topic, our team writes a set of relevant facts that aim to provide a user with a brief objective framework. These facts help our users get up-to-date before engaging with opinions.

How to Use the Abridge News app:
- Swipe back and forth to scroll between topics. Topics are arranged in chronological order (with newer topics appearing first)
- Apply a category filter to the types of topics you like best: Politics, International, Sports, Culture, Business, & Science + Health
- Search our archive to find topics related to specific terms like: Immigration, Mueller, LeBron James, etc.
- Once you find a topic you like, scroll down to read our "Quick Facts"
- Then, click into our "Opinion Spectrum" to see four arguments representing different sides of the debate. Swipe left and right to switch opinions
- Express your own view by reacting to each opinion piece. Choose from a subset of choices that includes things like: "I strongly support this," "This doesn't paint the full picture," "I agree with some, but not all." After reacting, see a summarized breakdown of other users' reactions to see if others agree with your interpretation.

At Abridge News, our mission is to increase empathy and critical thinking in the world by promoting diverse perspectives. We hope you like our app, and would love to hear your feedback via a review. Enjoy! The Abridge News Team
