Hey Product Hunters! Thanks for taking a look Pilot Reader. Our first release (tech news only) received great feedback, which led to this new update...now with all news categories! Swipe left to discard an article and swipe right to recommend articles to the community. The most recommended articles spread like a chain reaction and rise to the top of the stack. Providing an addicting way to get matched with the best news tailored just for you! Would love to hear feedback and thoughts. Here to answer any questions!

@npearsonwright great product! I've been using Pilot for a few months now for all of my tech news. I've been nothing but impressed with its simplicity and convenience for the user.

@wesleyeames Thanks, Wesley! Glad you're liking Pilot! What do you think of the new peer recommendation feature?

Sounds like Daily, by Buffer... http://www.producthunt.com/posts...
N. Pearson WrightHiring@npearsonwright · Stuff
@chrismessina yes, similar interface and maybe some overlapping content. From my understanding, Daily is more of a tool for Buffer users... with limited categories and specific content. Pilot's content comes from more consumer friendly sources and offers a "read later" feature, in addition to the recommendation system. Looking to build a community around recommended content rather than just a tool for content discovery to share to followers. I could be off here, any thoughts?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · Product designer & entrepreneur
Yeah, Daily is pitched as "Tinder for Content", rather than just news... Have you talked to @alexskatell of Shuffle?
N. Pearson WrightHiring@npearsonwright · Stuff
@chrismessina I haven't connected with him, but followed them on launch and have used it. It is a great product and hands down more robust. Would love to hear @alexskatell thoughts on our product. We sit between Daily and Buffer and target - Instead of being a reader, we focus more on the best content spreading through the community..."Swipe right to boost an article and immediately push it to five other readers. When those readers receive your article, they can choose to continue to pass it on, causing the article to continue to trend and maybe even go viral!"

@chrismessina @npearsonwright Thanks and congrats to your team. The boost idea is a really interesting one and definitely differentiates Pilot Reader in a positive way. Your interface is really nice and clean and excited to see all the different ways to surface news content on mobile.

Thanks for chiming in and for the kind words @alexskatell - I am excited to see future updates to Shuffle! We have been very impressed with the product and all it has to offer. Love the nearby feature.
