Viewpoint is an application which aims to give the user the freedom of opinions on current events. When the user selects an article to read, he/she can view what other countries’ perspectives are, by swiping left and right. The languages will be automatically translated to the user’s preference, and the articles will be carefully selected based on the user’s interests.
The idea came from my personal experience. I had the privilege to interact various cultures while I lived in Paris, Seoul, Beijing, Hong Kong and New York. Each culture and its media greatly influenced people’s minds and opinions which could dangerously create stereotypes and narrowed perspectives of the world, I wanted to break those boundaries through this application.
