  • News Optimised

    Made by journalists, for journalists, Newscoop allows you to structure your content in issues, sections and different article types and manage subscribers’ access. Perfect for periodicals.

  • Media Archive

    You invest in creating content, so a centralised media archive that handles video, images and files is vital. Newscoop 4's media archive stores media and vital metadata, meaning your news team are just a click away from adding great visual content to their articles.

  • REST API

    Newscoop now has an API that provides access to content for third-party applications via read-only services. Known as Gimme API, it can fetch content like Newscoop articles, organise them (in featured article lists, or by sections and topic), and then be displayed as widgets on any site.

  • Solr Search

    Newscoop works with Solr, the open source search platform from Apache Lucene that powers the search of Netflix, Instagram and Apple.

  • Intelligent Images

    Great photography is a must for the modern online news site - one article's photo can appear in many places - front page, articles, thumbnails. Newscoop helps your journalists get it right every time, by providing an easy interface to view and edit how the image will look on every part of the site.

  • New themes

    News sites' design needs are so unique and important that we wrote our templating language for them. It's powerful, flexible and ensures that every site can not only look different, but can also work differently.

     

  • Citizen Journalism

    Newscoop 4's community tools allow citizens to become an integral part of news gathering and sharing, creating deeper relationships with them. Newscoop allows visitors to sign up for a profile, comment on articles and even follow topics.

  • Front Page Management

    Breaking news is online media's forte and Newscoop is designed to make the process of rearranging your front page easy through a drag and drop interface. Journalists and editors have the option of adding every article to the front page, and then simply dragging that article around to determine where on the page it appears.

  • Responsive Design

    Delivering suitable content to all devices allows you to tell a special story to every individual reader. Newscoop's advanced browser detection allows you to customise your content down to the level of individual advertisment campaigns for specific devices. Lift the spirits of your web designers and take advantage of absolute control over your client's experience.
