If you’ve started feeling panicky every day between 5 and 6 p.m. because the volume of Trump news and notifications are just too much, there is a solution for you in the Quartz iPhone app
: The app was updated Tuesday to let users turn on a “24-hour political timeout” that will not show them any news or notifications about DJT for one full relaxing day.
The offering comes at a time when the phones of news junkies — or even just people who have both The Washington Post and The New York Times’ apps installed on their phones — blow up regularly. (See: Nieman Lab staff, 5:45 p.m. during a recent solemn event.) Last week, Continue reading "Now you can take a 24-hour Trump news “snooze” on the Quartz app"

e The New York Times

Earlier this month, President Donald Trump met
Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York. While the big story in the U.S. that day was the passage
of the Republican healthcare bill in the House of Representatives, the meeting was major news in Australia.
As a result, BuzzFeed News decided to send an alert to its app users who have chosen to follow Australia news in its news app. The alert read: “There were some delays, but Malcolm Turnbull and Donald Trump finally met in person. Here’s how it went down. 👴🏻 ❤️ 👴🏻 ”
Yes, it included the emoji, which has purposefully become a hallmark of the BuzzFeed News app, Brianne O’Brien

Apple News sometimes gets forgotten about amid the discussion of Facebook and Twitter, but the platform is growing as a way for publishers to reach new audiences
. With last year’s launch of iOS 10, Apple started letting publishers send users push notifications through the app, which comes preinstalled on all iOS devices. Apple also changed the on-boarding process, highlighting specific publications and encouraging users to enable alerts.
For the Australian Broadcasting Corporation
, the country’s public broadcaster, that’s added up to more than 1.3 million subscribers who’ve enabled push alerts since September. (Australia is home to roughly 23 million people, so that’s a noteworthy share in a short time.)
ABC’s audience on Apple News is younger and more female than its readers on other digital platforms, and 75 percent of the people it reaches there are new to the brand, deputy mobile editor Lincoln Archer
told me recently.

Last August, The Wall Street Journal set a push alert about a story about how alcohol companies are responding to new research
that shows consumption of adult beverages might increase the risk of cancer.
The notification could’ve been a fairly staid report on industry trends, but the Journal decided to try and make the story more relatable. “Moderate drinking is under fire and alcohol companies are pushing back,” the alert read, recalled Journal mobile product manager Greg Emerson
“It is an analysis piece of trends going on in the alcohol industry with implications for alcohol and beverage companies, but we were able in that push to give the news that alcohol companies need to devise new strategies to combat social changes and behavioral changes that lead to people drinking less, and we were able to make that clear but also make it pretty human and pretty relatable,” Emerson said.
