Context and content based push messages aggregator

Everyday, we read a lot of news and messages. The news and messages may come from different applications (news readers, social applications, etc). But usually we would like to read news by similar topics or keywords, not by applications. i.e. we may want to cross check if other news readers which installed on the system has similar pushed news recently. For example, when we are interested in a push message talking about a travel destination, we may also want to check the push messages from a travel information application or a travel booking application to see if there are any recommendations or promotions for that trip.

Now to archive this, we have to open the other applications one by one in order to read them. It is really not so convenient by switching applications back and forth and find the messages with similar topics and keywords.

Our invention is to aggregate the pushed messages which belong to the same type of applicationsin the application that users is currently using. For example: An user opens a News app to show the news, then all these pushed messages from other News apps are aggregated together for further reference.

Besides the aggregated pushed messages can not only be categorized as application type but also by keywords

but also by keywords

                                                                               content or topics. For example, a user opens a news about "travel" related in News app, then all the pushed message about travel news are aggregated together. Keywords, sentimental analysis, big data are including but not limited to.
