SHOVEL 3.0 IS COMING SOON AND WILL BE A FREE UPDATE TO CURRENT 2.0 USERS!
Shovel 3.0 is the premier Digg client application for the iPhone.
Through Shovel you gain access to the world of socially aggregated online news. While the site specializes in Tech news, there are more specialized categories where you can find news of interest to car enthusiasts, outdoorsmen, and more than anyone's fair share of funny videos.
All of the stories and submissions are voted on by the community and the best rise to the top!
So when you load up Shovel you are treated to a listing of the top rated, most up to date news, in topics that you're interested in.
Building on the success of Shovel 2.0, we started from the ground up and set out to build a truly fluid iPhone interface for an already outstanding experience.
Before we did anything at all, we rewrote the entire Digg API interface from scratch, making sure that we'd be ready the moment they open up their API to logging in, digging, and leaving comments. We know you all want it. It looks like they're close to letting us have it. *crossed fingers*
Once we'd done that we got started making a great new Shovel!

What's New in Version 3.2
numerous bug fixes
Great to use,
But it's a major pain when almost everytime I use this App, it closes on it's own. Shovel crashes multiple times a day, leaving me frustrated and disenchanted with the application! Could the developers please fix this?
Also, multiple times I instinctively go to close the browser and hit 'load in safari' instead, why would the back button not follow most other iPhone apps and be on the left side of the screen. That's a real hassle. Can it be switched?
One last thing, when I am reading stories in re browser, many times I get "failed to load" and have to dismiss it. The problem being that the same error will pop up three to TEN times on any given page! I don't care that something failed to load, and certainly don't need to be told eight times in quick succession.
Were these changed to take place I would love it!
By far the best digg app on here
An awesome app! Would be great though if we could see what items we have dug or buried when browsing through the list of items. I'd like to now what stories I have already viewed without having to go inside to see if I have dug it already. Amazing app though, have been a user since 1.0. Keep the updates coming!
Update is okay liked previous version
The look and feel changes are nice but I dislike being asked my location when I use an app. The previous app had some minor issues but it was simple and it worked. Not sure the changes Watrant the ads. If you haven't updated to this version I'd skip it.
