App Stream

Designed for WPO's affiliate television stations, these iPhone and Android apps cover local events across local and national news and social media. In 2013, our partners used the configurable library of interactive patterns to launch apps featuring the Miami Heat in the 2013 NBA playoffs, the North American International Auto Show, Florida's Gator Bowl and Detroit's classic car festival.

Early wireframes presented to the business unit and launch sponsor helped define the mix of provider and aggregated content. High-level user flow documentation also helped the news organization's editorial department staff curators and community management.

The product's newsfeed is powered by the Trove API allowing partners to curate each experience topically via internal and aggregated news sources and social media content (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). The apps supply live video feeds and scoreboards for enthusiasts at a distance and event information for local attendees.

The ever-expanding system has driven significant advertising revenue for partners and was selected by event executives as the official app for the auto show. Additionally, the platform has been deployed to other business units to ship apps for The Root 100: Top Black Influencers, the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, and Capital Insight's Poll Watch.
