    How does this stack up to Circa? I've been using NYT Now as a replacement, but I don't like it too much.

      Great question Alex.

      I'd say we took some hints from Circa, for instance if you opt-in to notifications, you'll receive a notification if there is an update to a story you've read. Think of their "Follow" mechanic, more to come in this space.

      Though we are not re-writing the news, our CEO Jordan said it well over on Product Hunt.

      We don't write or rewrite news...for us it's about an incredible discovery, browse, and read/watch/listen experience for users. I don't think anyone has really applied this level of design and technology thought to the space...

      In short, we are not re-writing stories in Wildcard. We curate stories from thousands of publishers—using our card technology—to deliver articles, videos, etc. in a native card format. There are many more card types to come in the not-so-distant future :)

      Hopefully this helps shed a bit more light into how we think about Wildcard when compared to other news apps.
