Smack my ass and call me Judy! I just found out "circa" means "approximately"; I always thought it was a fancy way to say "in". Well. Live and learn. Irrelevance aside, Circa News is yet another pretty way to get your daily news fix, if you haven't found your favourite yet.

SixthSigmaa: This app is awesome. Basically they summarize news articles into just the facts. You can read about current events very quickly. A cool feature is on news that is important to you, you can "follow" it and any time there is a new development, Circa will send you a push notification with the new facts. It is great for people who want to stay informed but don't want to read a bunch of articles.
Welcome to our biggest update to Circa News *by far*. We've been super hard at work on it for quite a while and are excited to release it to you! If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or questions feel free to get ahold of us at firstname.lastname@example.org ! Now, on to the good stuff! Introducing Wire
• We're so stoked about this feature. Wire is a new area of the app that consists of two things: a personalized Daily Brief from our editorial staff, and updates to stories that you may already be following.
• Now we make your followed updates super easy to read quickly by putting everything you haven't seen yet into a single fast-reading page.
Dynamic Daily Brief
• The President of the United States doesn’t need to read the news, he’s briefed on only the things that demand his attention. We figured why shouldn't everyone have that? Our editors will carefully curate the most meaningful stories of the day so you can have a Daily Brief delivered at a time that you choose!
• By far the most requested feature since we launched nearly two years ago and it's finally here! Search for stories that matter to you and give them a follow.
• You can now customize your main screen and Wire to only see the things you care most about – turn on or off any topic you'd like!
Filter Breaking News Alerts
• Don't want to see a sports-related breaking news alert? Just turn it off! We've made it really easy for you to tell us what news you want alerts about.
Android Wear Support
• Get Breaking News notifications and story updates delivered directly to your Android Wear device!
• We've teamed up again with Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer BT (https://twitter.com/bt), to produce a high quality suite of sounds that would fit perfectly with our new experience.
The latest Tweets from BT (@BT). Grammy Nominated Composer & Technologist. I am a man that believes sound can change the world. I seek, I learn. Bookings: email@example.com. On a shining blue dot
