Your own branded news app

Many publishers fear challenges connected to managing necessary resources or made bad experiences with high costs for app development. This where tchop´s app-as-a-service comes into play!

tchop is a turnkey solution that empowers any enterprise, agency or publisher to create highly effective and fully customised native apps in record time. We offer rich functionality out of the box, enabling you to launch a news driven app with all of the features your customers have come to expect:

  • Manage your content from a simple user and mobile friendly CMS
  • Integrate existing content and news feeds with a few clicks
  • Separate free and paid content via built-in user management
  • Engage users with rich content such as GIFs or native video
  • Monitor success with a custom analytics dashboard

Our core platform enables you to take your app to market and then evolve and build on it over time. We use a modular approach so you can gradually enable advanced features such as real time chat to keep users actively engaged.

Integrate existing feeds and sources

As our platform is built around the idea of curation, tchop seamlessly integrates with existing systems. Your team can continue working with the existing tools without evening touching the tchop platform in their daily routine. Or it can use the tchop CMS to easily curate content on top or add app specific features like push notes.

tchop can automatically parse content feeds on basis of a variety of standard integrations:

  • RSS feeds
  • Scraping of new links from a website (also your own)
  • Social Media Content from Twitter, Facebook or Instagram

You can fully automate import and publication of these contents, which means also small teams are empowered to do great things. And in case there´s something missing: thanks to our API´s it is easy to build custom integrations and adjust to custom requirements.

Of course editors can also manually import links, social posts, photos or videos directly from their smartphone, also out of other apps via our sharing extension. Mobile content curation on the go!

Flexibility at its core

Our platform´s functionality has been built in line with industry best practice and design guidelines. However, it is possible to extend or replace every screen to produce something more bespoke. Here are some examples of custom requirements that we have already implemented and which are easy to use for you:

  • Innovative UI/UX concepts (like "tinder-style" swipeable content cards)
  • Native Ads via Google SDKs (Admob or DFP) or other ad providers
  • Connect to a custom SSO (to manage user access)
  • Third Party Push SDKs (like OneSignal)
  • Custom tracking tools and requirements

You can implement these custom features on your own on basis of our code. Or we can handle that for you in separate branches, where you enjoy full freedom. In any case you will benefit from future improvement and technical developments of our core platform.
