Centr generates concise, seconds-long summaries for everything from news articles to Buzzfeed lists, just a click away.
Centr shows you concise, 5-second summaries for everything from the best news articles to Buzzfeed lists, just a click away.
We're constantly hit with a never-ending flow of information, and a significant portion of that today is digital -- news articles online, links from social media, and the posts we read every now and then for the laughs. But we often don't have the time or motivation to sit down and sift through dozens of news articles, each of which take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to read.
Centr makes it far easier and more enjoyable to triage the biggest headlines and the newest blog posts you read every day, by giving you a quick, concise, 5-10 second summary that gets to the essence of an article or a web page.
Rather than opening a string of links across the top of your screen and sifting through each one extensively, open an article, click on Centr, get to the point, and if it sounds interesting, read the article. Not quite capturing your attention? You can move on, having spent seconds rather than minutes of your time.
Currently Centr is compatible with a huge and growing range of websites, including (but certainly not limited to) The New York Times, CNN, The Onion, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Wired, Business Insider, Vogue, The Wall Street Journal, ABC, BBC, NPR, Cnet, People.com, Gizmodo, and of course, the crowd favorite, Buzzfeed.
Compatibility across websites is continuing to expand with updates, and these are only some of the compatible sources that Centr can parse among hundreds of sources across all sizes and topics.
Save yourself from news overload -- Centr gets to the point. Fast.
