Appy Helper

Our winning prototype was called 'Appy Helper', a conversational interface that will sit within long-running complex stories that can help users catch up with recent developments or learn all about the background to this story in an accessible way, tailored to their needs.

There isn’t a lack of good explainer content online, but it’s often hard to find when you have landed on a news story and everyone, regardless of their level of knowledge, gets the same content.
