Smart application/system to search & alert the user with exact news wanted by the user & with capability of automatic equivalent words injector to assist in news search on websites

Disclosed is a system to get the latest news update as soon as it is announced. This system alerts the user with the exact news expected by him by automatically injecting synonym words in the news search.

Take for an example, many airline companies announces offers on flight tickets. For instance, AirAsia airlines company had recently announced lowest airfare
on limited seats from Bangalore to Delhi which was much lower than the train ticket (AC 3-tier).

So, a person who was planning for a tour to Delhi from Bangalore would have been happy if he had grabbed this opportunity as it would have reduced both his time & money.

However, he can grab this opportunity only if he gets this news immediately as soon as it is announced & if he is ahead of others as there are only limited seats available & this flying route is in high demand.

Take another example in which assume that Trinity Circle to Old Airport Road was closed for vehicles due to some road construction happening in this road. So, a person who was travelling in this road
would be happy to know when this road is again reopened for vehicles. In this case, there is no competition between users as in example (1) above. However, any person who uses this road would
be happy to know this news as soon as possible because the other route which he has to use is much farther than this route. So, knowing this news earlier will save time & fuel expenses.

So, a solution is needed to help the user in news search & deliver the exact news to the user based on his area of interest as soon as the news is announced.

Known available solutions are from the websites which allows the users to subscribe to the latest news flashing on their website. But this has a drawback because the user will get all the latest news & he has to scroll up & down on his mobile device to read each headline news. This is time consuming & the user has to unnecessarily read all the news which
he may not be interested to do so or he may not have patience to read all these news headlines & that's why he may miss the opportunity.

Other solutions are getting the news from particular category of website. Say for example getting airfare news from Airlines related website. But here again there is no known
solution to filter the news such that the user will receive the exact news for which he was waiting for.

Another known solution is from other websites in which the user can subscribe to get the latest news about particular company's news, share price movement, so on.

But here again there is no known solution to filter the news such that the user will receive only the news for which he was waiting for.

There are no existing solution which suggests the news to user in a smart way by injecting similar meaning words.

To summarize, existing solut...
