Snewpit is an online platform making news more accessible, more relevant and more instantaneous for all. Users from a worldwide community of citizen journalists who discover and report on the news that’s happening around them, as it’s happening.

The Opportunity

Snewpit was founded on the belief that everyone deserves instant access to the news that impacts and affects them. There was a need for individuals to have access to a platform that delivers relevant and personalised news that directly relates to them. After struggling to find information about a local traffic incident which caused major disruptions, Snewpit’s founder, Charlie made it his mission to find a better way of helping everyday people to easily access and share relevant news with those around them.

The Project

With the hard work of our team, Snewpit was reimagined as a mobile app from an existing web platform. The team was focused on developing an application that puts authenticity, accessibility and relevance in the hands of the user. After the Covid-19 pandemic broke, Snewpit received outstanding support from local communities with over 30,000 concurrent users within an hour.

The Engagement

App Boxer procured this project from another company who went into administration. While we were able to rescue the backend of the app, it required a complete front end UI overhaul. We also expanded the scope to build a fully functioning website from scratch. We worked directly with the founder to 
reignite the project and together build the platforms he had imagined. We now have
an ongoing relationship with Snewpit spanning the last 3 years.
