Enhancements to our News App

Enhancements to our News App

Goal: Increase user traffic and interaction with our News App (IOS News App)

Target group: Employees of our company. Most users are seniors (and all have IOS devices)


We has an existing IOS News App, which is only used by employees of the company.

The News App backend is made with WordPress. The developer needs to build an API in the backend to retrieve data from the IOS News App.

The IOS News app already has the functionality to add comments on news.

Estimated hours: 144 hrs


Allow users to reply to comments

Allow users to tag other users in comments

Notify users when they have been tagged in a comment

Integration with third party news service. Retrieve news with Lexis Nexis API. Replace link to news source from “manual” posts to API.

Replace ‘quote of the day’ with ‘Breaking News’ under Top Stories and explore possibility of break news pushed automatically from LexisNexis

Explore possibility to push content based on day/time, example, certain articles to be pushed on weekend (schedule posting of article)

Application should have provision for multiple language support; Arabic primarily (nice to have)

Restriction of viewing on all categories by everyone. Certain categories would be more relevant to senior leadership as compared to everyone

Define user groups, and restrict access to news category based on groups.
