Yahoo News Digest provides a definitive summary of all the important, need-to-know news. Digests are delivered twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening. All the top stories are summarized and presented with the key information that you need to stay on top of what’s happening.
Each story is created from multiple sources to present the essential bits and pieces of information, known as “Atoms”. Atoms are key quotes, images, videos, stock tickers, maps, infographs, and Wikipedia excerpts among others. These atomic units provide a unique context to the news. Our stories are both algorithmically and hand curated to ensure high quality, and come with a textual summary.
In addition, we have extended this paradigm for the Apple Watch to deliver top-of-the-hour news bulletins. These bulletins are designed with the Yahoo News Digest's minimalist and modernists attitude. A bulletin begins with a beautiful, geometric poster which signifies the hour using Roman numeral accents, color and diagonal accents. The view is simple with just a graphic and concise headline. The bulletin itself is composed three simple but important screens. We offer the user a two sentence microsummary, a visual piece of information we call an "atom" eg map/stock ticker/stat, and then the ability for the user to speed read further information.
Yahoo News Digest makes your reading experience comprehensive, effortless, and complete, and is customized for both iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. If you get your News Digest on an iPad, you’ll also enjoy a weekly Katie Couric video show, the ability to customize when you receive your news and, in the US edition, extra news categories called Sections which include atomized stories on a whole range of topics.
We are committed to building the best mobile experience and are interested in your feedback.

What's New in Version 1.7.3
Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Tiz good news
Great layout and fast read… I love it…
Well, that's what I said a month or so ago and that part for me still is mostly accurate.
Here is what bugs me.
In keeping your news stories short and sweet, your editors take the whole story and chop it into an often clunky, albeit much shorter, version that often leaves out key parts.
I would rather have the full story and allow me to do my own editing as I skim thru your text.
Sometimes I like the photos you select, but at times it appears your editors put little effort into picking pix that relate to the story or, especially, provide background.
Still, I like your product a lot and will continue to read it, more or less, 3 to 6 times a week (of course, with your data retrieval you know more about my numbers than I do).
Still, I like your product! … Bob
The Reader's Digest of news
I wasn't very impressed with this app when I first began to use it, but it grew on me. I find it useful first thing in the morning as a source of what's currently happening in a variety of different areas. I don't use this as my main source of news--I'm old school and generally prefer a real live "paper" paper. But Yahoo's app is, naturally, more immediate than any print document (although, like many old-time newspapers, it has a morning and an evening edition). All in all, I would download this app again in a New York minute!
The news that is "News"
I get my local news from 2 of my local TV stations apps but I have several Yahoo apps on my iPhone and this is my national and international news source. The videos as well as the text is brief but informative . Too many of the other news apps just go on and on and bury you with the uninteresting aspects of issues but this app informs you of an issue and then moves on to the next one . It's my favorite news app by far
