New Daily by Buffer App Brings You the Most-Shared Articles

Buffer may have gotten its start in helping users manage their social media profiles but lately this startup is expanding into new areas.A couple weeks ago Buffer added an option to import, follow, and share RSS feeds from inside the service, and today they are are launching a new app which helps users find the articles that have been shared the most via Buffer.

Daily by Buffer, which is described as the "Tinder for content sharing", offers users a curated batch of articles and posts. The users can sample the content, and then either swipe right or left to either discard the link or add it to your buffer queue.

The app is only available for iPad and iPhone, and at the moment it only offers 5 or 6 stories each day. Once you run out you'll need to wait until tomorrow for a new crop of stories.

In a way, Buffer is following Instapaper in finding new uses for the aggregate behavior of its users. Last year Instapaper launched a couple similar services, Instapaper Daily and Weekly, which offered readers periodic collections of popular content.

About Nate Hoffelder (11580 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
