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 1.6.1
Performance Improvements and Bug Fixes
Really Love it, but...
This is probably the best news app(and the best thing Yahoo! Have ever done) out there. I only wish they'd give the user the ability to curate the kind of articles he/she receives. The available categories are too broad and too few. Give options for specific topics... Sports, tech, finance, entertainment etc.
Apart from that, this is a world class app!
Yahoo News Digest
I am very pleased with this application. It is the first thing I go to every morning and evening for news. When I finish reading Yahoo News Digest I then read the NYT online. Lately I am spending most of my news reading time with Yahoo News Digest and many of the referenced sources.
I wish the app would automatically go to the latest news issue if a new one has been released since the last time I open the app. Sometimes it gets stuck on the last issue even when a new one has been released and I have to go find the new issue.
