Reals Now

This was a very interesting project for me. I started to think about it while scrolling my social handles. I like watching small videos and I also like to read facts and figures but I have never really seen an app that does both. So, I decided that the app can be designed where people can share by showing short videos for displaying or explaining news about the city; around the country & world just like TikTok; Instagram; Facebook, or any other social media except the main purpose of this app is news.

The Problem

It’s hard to keep up with daily news when it's monotonous and boring. There is a need for exposure for amateur Journalists to show or practice their skills.

Who’s facing the Problem?

Youth who finds news boring but wants to keep up with it, as it is a healthy habit.

Amateur journalists who want some exposure or platform to showcase their talent and people who want to be aware of their surroundings.


An App where news reading is a trend. Social media app where news is posted and shared in the form of short videos for the purpose of making it less boring and more interesting just like any other social medial app you can scroll down and watch the interesting ways of telling news by the people around the globe.
