It has been shortlisted for the annual Innovation Awards and the World Architectural News Award.

The AppsAfrica award honours innovation in the tech ecosystem across Africa, and it is supported by Mobile Monday South Africa and Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF).

On the other hand, the WAN award is the largest international architecture award programme.

These international honours follow Bounce News’ recent recognition as Nigeria’s most downloaded news app on Google Playstore.

The Innovation Awards holds in Cape Town, South Africa on November 6th, 2017.

It provides nominees and winners with global publicity, recognition and networking with over 300 leaders in Africa’s tech ecosystem.

Meanwhile, the WAN Festival holds from November 15th to 17th, 2017 at the Arena Berlin in Germany.

Bounce News’ growth has been attributed to its digital innovation and superior news gathering technique, which allows it to provide Nigerians with personalised content.

Unlike regular news apps, the platform is transforming the experience of consuming news online by stream lining the clutter of excess information.

In addition, the Bounce News app functions optimally in communities with poor internet access and on smartphones with low data.

According to the General Manager at Bounce News Nigeria, Goodluck Ikporo, the platform has achieved a lot since its launch in March 2017 because it delivers relevant stories tailored to empower its consumers.

“When you first launch Bounce, you’ll be given the option to select which interests you prefer. This defines the initial set of content the platform will show to you. It will then look at your profile and the content you have publicly shared to find additional interests. We simply transform basic information into applied intelligence”, he said.

Bounce News, which is already popular among Nigerians of various demographics, offers a range of exciting content including: politics, entertainment, business, sports, lifestyle, fashion, education, tech and crime. We tell your story and allow you to decide what you want to know.
