this week saw the launch of a Spanish edition with a German language version

platforms including Blackberry, Symbian, Bada, Windows Phone 7 and webOS as
well as Android Honeycomb tablets. The much awaited iPad version is due in a

The success of News Republic is based on the company's proprietary
TagNav(c) system whereby the user can easily search and organise news stories
and related news articles that are of specific interest to them. The app is
designed to enable users to closely follow their favourite subjects, people
or places and be the first to know when a new story breaks. The simple and
fluent interface allows users to search, discover and share vital news
stories using email, Twitter or Facebook.

Users create their very own unique and personalised news channels
generated from thousands of breaking news stories from over 50 leading news
agencies, major brands and local media sources around the world including
AFP, AP, Reuters and PR Newswire and multiple specialist media brands
including ITN, Adfero, Techradar, eWeek, breaking Celebrity news from WENN
plus many more.

The app has secured licensing agreements with all the content providers
so users get the full stories, pictures and videos within the app itself. In
addition, news stories can be referenced to external resources including
Wikipedia, YouTube and Google and with over 120,000 topics covered, users
have the option to search and find out even more information or related news
