One big difference between the two is that from what I understand is that with Stripe you use a shared merchant account where as with Paymill everyone get's their own. This explains why with Stripe you can be approved in minutes where as Paymill can take up to a few months at times.

(I work at Stripe.) What it even means to have a "merchant account" is shifting in the industry, so it's hard to be absolutely definitive, but: most of Stripe's transactions run through what would traditionally be designated as regular merchant accounts. At the same time, it's our belief that it shouldn't matter (which is why we don't expose this). There are properties that our users should care about -- that funds are held in their name, that the right thing appears on cardholders' statements, etc. How that's accomplished is an implementation detail that may change over time and which will depend on the payment instrument, country, and so on.
But as an end-user, why should you care if you use a shared merchant account or 'your own'? As long as I can set the name of the business that appears on the card transaction, you're fine. With stripe I could even customize this name. With Paymill, they force you to put http:// in the beginning or some other stupidity...
The site tells me nothing about the app. "Share and meet new friends", okay well who are they and how does it match me to people? Can I chat with people I already know? How does this differ to all the other chat apps already out there?
Appreciate the response and we'll def work to improve our landing page, homepage to better showcase and explain our app! And thanks for the link to the article, it is very helpful :) For now I think our Google Play and App Store page will explain the app better with the app screenshots and description.
We have always focused on our website in the past and mobile is still fairly new for us so we're learning quickly. All feedback and suggestions are welcome!
I'm one of the co-founders of NewsTrapper. Our MVP currently only finds the stories related to the original one you followed, but our long term plan is to build in summarised timelines. Like you, I don't want to have to sift through loads of story either and just want to get the jist of what I'm interested in.
Our big vision is that eventually we'll be able to build up a searchable collection of summarised timelines on nearly any news stories or articles we crawl on the web.
