Perspecs is a new free app that gives you three different perspectives on the same news topic:

Here are more details:

Perspecs is a new free app that curates the top news stories from a variety of established regional, national and international news sources. Unlike traditional aggregators and news curation services, Perspecs goes a step further and offers readers 3 polarised opinions of the same story.

How these opinions are categorised can vary. For political stories this could be in the form of ‘left’, ‘background’, ‘right’. For review items the categories could be ‘negative’, ‘neutral’, ‘positive’.

I’m adding it to The Best Tools To Help Develop Global Media Literacy.

Thanks to AdWeek for the tip.
