BreakingNews.ie is a leading newspaper in Ireland, owned by The Irish Times.

Their website and mobile apps are powered by PublisherPlus, a content management system from Square1.

I developed BreakingNews' mobile application with Flutter. It's a typical newspaper application with articles, categories, and tags. It also has ads. It uses a custom HTML plugin to render custom content that's coming from PublisherPlus. Although the app is a native cross-platform app, for rendering content, we are using HTML to generate content with a lot of custom rendering and styling for different types of elements.

For push notifications, it uses XtremePush, which uses a marketing tool. With the help of my colleagues, we added XtremePush's native SDKs to Flutter.

For ads, it uses Permutive, an audience platform for publishers. Implementing Permutive also required using native code and native views inside the Flutter app.

And lastly, since the app is for Europe, I implemented OneTrust SDK for consent management.
