Sports Content Aggregator / Sports News Summation (Arabic)– Mobile App Brief
The aim is to build an Arabic sports news aggregator using content pulled from the RSS feeds of local and international news publications.
The user should have the ability to personalize content by subscribing to different feeds and the content appears in more rich & visually appealing format, similar to that of Zite, Flipboard or CNN.
One main Arabic content aggregation app is Nabd [url removed, login to view]
However, the objective is to take feeds from regional sports sites like Kooora, Yalla Koora, sport360, filgoal etc.
Back-end development is required to build the application, but also to understand how to structure and filter the content through a recommendation engine. Please use white label and open source software where possible.
Front-end development is required to design the application. In a similar way to Zite, we would require a scrolling technique, swiping to next sections, social sharing functions, saved articles, content recommendation by location and logins.
Advice on social registrations/logins and data collection to enhance content recommendations via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or G+ would be required.
This would be for both iOS 8 and Android Material Design. Assistance would be required to submit the app to both stores. The app will be free.
