News360 recently launched a new native app for BlackBerry PlayBook: “The app is built on a deep semantic analysis and natural language processing that was developed for use by Russian corporations and government agencies for reputation management over the past 7 years. Last year, the team created an English language version, and has since been working on a consumer application of the technology, which became News360.”
