NewswhipNewsWhip is yet another social news app, albeit with the twist that it scans all Facebook and Twitter users for news rather than just your personal connections.

The company says that its iOS app scans 1bn people on Facebook and Twitter every minute to see what news is trending then puts these stories together as a live stream.

Users can filter for trending news in topics such as politics and technology and can also check what is trending in several individual countries, including the US and the UK.
