Newshunt is India’s Flipboard for regional content

We’ve all heard of Flipboard, Pulse and many news readers gaining popularity, especially with the evolution of mobile content curation and the desire to share content within respective social networks by users. Catering to a similar requirement is a startup from Bangalore called Newshunt which focuses on addressing a core problem of showing reigonal content on mobile devices.

Launched in June of 2009, the platform was built to solve this problem at an application level, in a small mobile footprint, and making it all work on phones whether it natively supported the language or not.

“With vernacular literacy far greater than English, Indian languages were our key focus,” said Vishal Anand, chief product officer of Newshunt.
