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.
Yahoo News Digest makes your reading experience comprehensive, effortless, and complete, and is customized for both iPhone and iPad. 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.
Nice magazine feel
This news app has more the feel of a Sunday supplement or quality news magazine like Time or The Economist than it does a newspaper. It looks like a high quality weekend read. But if you want the latest stories, and the most up-to-date headlines, I would stick with online newspapers or Google News, via its online site. By necessity, news apps are going to filter the news and edit it, and all that is going to take time. This news app is more news magazine than newspaper.
Yahoo, you're winning the cool war!
I've bee using this app for a long time now and it lives on my home screen. It's beautiful and the articles are well summarised. I give it 4 stars due to the lack of iCloud support. I'd love to be able to mark things as read on all my devices after I've read them on one of them. That's my only complaint. Well done, yahoo team. But please, seriously, bring the syncing capabilities to all of us.
Quick, easy and just enough
A quick way of keeping up
to date with the world affairs without the paragraph after paragraph nonsense, especially if your someone who doesn't have a lot of time on your hands. Great visual and use of page space, easy to navigate and enough information without too much cluster. Well done.
