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.

Yahoo! News App
Just tried this app. Smooth easy to use short summaries not quite as much depth as might be found on Google and a much shorter list of articles in each category. That's purposeful I'm told by design, but I did find myself looking for a little more depth. For quick summary of the days news it really is very nice and not quite as slanted as other apps out there that have a political affiliation or obviously lean to one side or the other of the political arena. Would be great if you could personalize & add a local news (state,regional, city) area to be displayed also.
Overall I think I'll continue to try this for a few weeks.
Cutting edge for news on the go
Great digest of day's news stories. The format and visuals are inviting, and I like the additional links and related info that help you understand context and history, as well as tweets to get other reactions or takes. Sometimes the stories are rather short, and it would be nice to be able to link to a more in-depth version. Also, it would be nice to be able to copy and paste a line or two, for posting a blurb on Facebook, but i can understand the motive to protect their work.
Yahoo has delivered big time!
This app is fantastic. User-friendly. Simple yet elegant. A must have if you're tired of slow load times and junk news which seems to be the norm from too many other news aggregators. Yahoo has hit a homerun with this app.
