Knowledge Storm – Mobile Brainstorming for Android
If you’d like a way to automatically combine information on a topic of interest from a variety of sources, take a look at Knowledge Storm.
An Android application developed by XDA forum member martinlong78 and co-developer Andy Boura, Knowledge Storm helps you compile, via the Cloud Engine, nuggets of intelligent information from a variety of sources such as SMS, other locally stored correspondence, direct input, and the internet. Internet sources currently consist of Reuters Knowledge online reports, fundamentals, and significant developments but it is hoped that this will expand in future development.
The app was developed as an entry into the Thomson Reuters StreetApps challenge, and both developers are employees of Thomson Reuters. In order to progress in the challenge, votes for Knowledge Storm are required – and this is where martinlong78 has put in a request for your support!
Knowledge Storm is available for free in the Market. If you like it, please vote for the app.
For more details on his request, and Knowledge Storm, visit the application thread.
