Using Google Docs to Create A Custom Mobile News Reader March 2014

How Does This Help?  We all make an effort to stay current, and retrieve our news from various sources  It is cumbersome to visit individual websites (so eliminate this as much as possible)  News aggregators, social media, etc. are all resources, as well as... – Having a basic – bare bones - news feed is another option. 3/13/2014 Don Tomoff | Invenio Advisors LLC 2

Here’s an Example  Only interested in the most current information. So, limit news items to 10-20 items per “category”  Older news simply falls off. News reader is designed to be looked at frequently.  Two popular professional resources are the Wall Street Journal and Harvard Business Blog posts – This example uses these sites (a WSJ subscription is needed for access to news stories) 3/13/2014 Don Tomoff | Invenio Advisors LLC 3

Use Case  Mobile devices – primarily smartphone, but tablet is fine.  Link to review this example can be accessed here. http://bit.ly/wsj-news-feed – Open on smartphone/tablet and Bookmark the site (and add to Homescreen, if desired) 3/13/2014 Don Tomoff | Invenio Advisors LLC 4
