The Quartz app delivers the news as a text- and emoji-filled chat. Headlines from Quartz and other publications are displayed one at a time as text bubbles. Users can choose to read more (links to full stories are provided) or move on to the next headline. Each “chat session” lasts just a few minutes; and along the way, Quartz peppers in photos, GIFs, and AR (augmented reality) 3D models. Quartz is available as a free app for iOS and Android devices.
