There are lot more features of this app. Isn’t this Awesummly app awesome just like it sounds?
Now let’s have a quick flash at the backdrop of the app. Awesummly was founded in December 2015, co-founded by Nithin Mishra who is the chief executive officer along with Ankit Dhawan who is the CMO and Deepak who is the CTO respectively.
The name AWESUMMLY was inspired by an algorithm news summarising app in London named ‘summly’ which was introduced by D’Aloisio. Later he sold it to Yahoo for US$30 MILLION which made him one of the youngest self-made millionaires.

Just like other big companies today. The idea of Awesummly was also created while having a casual talk and purely accidental. The co-founders of Awesummly had a thought-provoking question when they were sitting across a table in a restaurant and discussed the missing Malaysian flight. The flight number was not known to them, and this very lacking on news facts brought the idea of Awesummly into their genius brains.
The development of this news app is tremendously valuable to people for reading short summarised news in real time. It follows a unique technology that summarises any news article within couples of seconds.Not just this, Awesummly also does not translate the article instead it summarise it in the same language.
As of now, Awesummly partnered with media house to summarise their content and helps them by providing traffic on their website.
Getting towards the funding part of Awesummly it is popularly known that they got their initial funds from The Vault Show. Apart from them, Awesummly has received a significant amount of funding of about $146k from Vivek Bhargava, chief executive of Digital Marketing Agency and Ameera Shah promoting manager of the Metropolis Healthcare.
The happy users of this app include many famous personalities. It has also been recommended by Shobhit Mittal, Rajeev Singh. The users of this app are mostly youth belonging to the age group of 18 – 28.
They have many competitors like ‘daily hunt’ and ‘news in short’ which summarises manually. For now, Awesummly has created a benchmark in the news world.
Success comes only with hard work. This is very true for the fact that it took a lot of pain for the co-founders in surveying out of several tech parks and offices asking about the news and how frequently people read the story. It was found that many techies didn’t have enough time to run through the long news articles in a day.
Hence Awesummly came up with something short and simple which would help them get the fastest and the latest news in real time. Also, it is compatible with all android devices and covers only about 3.9 MB space whereas other news apps take up more space than this app. It has achieved a 4.7 rating on play store.
The creation of this app is an innovation and is running quite well in India. With only nine members of his team, Nithin Mishra has proved to achieve success in this short span of time. The three co-founders with their experiences in their work field, each one of them have brought excellent results and have used all their ability and passion for making this real.
