SocialSensor news app for iPhone

11 September 2014

The SocialSensor R&D projects has created a new tool to detect trends from multiple social networks including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr and Google+.

You can download the SocialSensor mobile app from here currently available for any iPhone.The system automatically surfaces the most ‘newsworthy’ and fast moving trends. It aggregates pictures, hashtags, posts from multiple networks. You can filter results by time, network, location, popularity, recency or by the trust of those in the network.

The system has been developed to meet the needs of journalists; to help them spot new angles for stories and quickly access the most useful pictures and videos. We are also developing interfaces for casual news readers, but you can read more about our research and the approaches we have undertaken on our website (

This application has been developed as part of the SocialSensor research project co-funded by the EC. Please note that this is a beta version of the SocialSensor App and we welcome feedback and ideas on how to develop and improve the functionality at
