Summify is a "social news reader" that helps you consume your river of news in minutes, rather than hours.

People are increasingly getting their news mainly from the social networks they're part of, but this is rapidly getting overwhelming. If you're connected with a few hundred people and companies it's hard to stay on top of the news they share. There's currently no way to get the important stuff without going through all your news.

In Summify, the important stuff bubbles up at the top so, however much time you have at your disposal, you always know you're reading the important stuff first. We achieve this by using your social and interest graphs to curate your news.
