In these uncertain times DormPress helps keep students connected to campus, whether they’re in the dorms or remote learning from home. DormPress gives users the access they need to hundreds of intelligent young journalists from the best college newspapers across the country. They can create personalized news feeds based on the topics they care about from the school they’re interested in. Employing advanced AI, the more they use the app and share with their friends, the more unique their feeds become. DormPress also incorporates gamification elements to make the news discovery and sharing experience extra special.
When users browse articles on DormPress and share those unique articles with friends, both parties get rewarded with DP Points! DP Points let users get extra features such as additional news feeds, and also let users get rid of things you don’t want like pesky advertising. All of these extras can still be gotten through a paid premium version as well as other in-app purchases.
“Budgets can be pretty tight for students, and no one should have to pay to stay informed. That’s why DormPress uses a point-based gamification system for news discovery,” says Sridat Persaud, CEO, DormPress. “So the more you use DormPress and share your unique discoveries, the more points you earn for unlocking in-app upgrades for free.”
A noteworthy point about DormPress is its unwavering support of student journalism. Across the country college journalism programs are facing cutbacks and print reductions. At the same time, these same college papers are providing some of the best independent reporting in the country during a time when mainstream media is more partisan and biased than ever.
“The ever-increasing corporatization of media means you have very few options lefts for authentic, unbiased news. DormPress shifts the balance by bringing a national audience to student journalists who are providing honest and refreshing alternatives to the mainstream media,” explains Mr. Persaud.
For those looking for a break from the toxicity and negative comments in mass media, DormPress is the perfect alternative. Get interest-based relevant news that’s fresh and honest, all while supporting the student journalism community. The app is available for both Android and iOS users.
