Circa, the mobile news service that was co-founded and funded by Cheezburger Network CEO Ben Huh, launched the second generation of its platform on Thursday, including an Android version of the app — but the real meat of the launch is Circa’s focus on breaking news, and its plan to become a kind of one-stop mobile wire service for major news stories. Co-founder and CEO Matt Galligan said Circa will now start offering breaking news alerts, combined with the service’s existing ability to “follow” and get updates to a story.
