Circa is a mobile news service, accessible via an app which was released in 2012. It is currently available for Android Top5NewsApps-Circaand iOS devices. The biggest advantage of using Circa is that it provides “atomisation” of the news rather than “summarisation”. Where “atomisation” according to Circa means: “To break down a story into its core elements: facts, stats, quotes and media”, as opposed to summarisation where content is reduced for quicker reading, or users are linked elsewhere for the full story.
