Hey Product Hunt!! ????
My name is Saurav, and I’m a high school developer and entrepreneur. Lapis News is the first app I’ve developed, and I love where it’s at now. I’ve always enjoyed making people smile, and eventually decided to start a project on this focus. Over the past two years, the media grabbed the unfortunate events that played out as opportunities to get more clicks. Because bad news sells, a negativity bias has plagued the biggest newspapers in the world.
When I noticed the effects this pattern had on mental health (lots of research published on this), I decided to take action. I learned how to design, develop, and market a platform all from scratch, all with the goal to spread positivity. I learned how to work with Artificial Intelligence frameworks and build my own models from scratch. After putting my soul into Lapis News for the past year, I am estatic to launch the app on PH!
Here some of my favorite parts of Lapis News:
???? Daily good news to shut out negativity from your life and deliver you otherwise unnoticed events
???? A scrolling feed to view cute animals
???? A jokes page filled with puns and dad jokes
???? A newsletter to start your week off on a positive note (subscribe at https://newslapis.substack.com!)
You can check it out at https://lapisnews.app, or as Lapis News on the App Store.
