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.
No complaints here
Short concise news bytes is helpful but very limited selection. Usually there is a good variety with a mild media bias. I have no found those mismatched pictures and proofing errors others have mentioned but why I read is because I can get the key elements of the story and move on. If that is what you want this is the app and there is available more selections and details if you want. If you read them all "Did you know" is usually great but you have to read all the articles. The quotes here are great and well worth the app. When it comes to sports I cheat just open and close.
You need to proof these!
Okay, I like the app idea, but you need to proof these stories before posting! Pictures that don't match stories, headlines that don't match copy, incomplete paragraphs, and event chopped off sentences. The app gets me interested in the story but then the summary is poorly pieced together and doesn't contain good links where I can find more.
I very rarely write reviews, but have been thinking about writing this one for a long time. The latest posting comparing Mission Impossible open weekend results with Vacation results was pretty much a mess. So here this review is, and long due.
Again, great app concept, but please make the content worthy of the tool delivering it.
I hated reading the newspaper, but now this app make things a ton easier. It condenses topics so that you can get a general idea of what's going on, and if you want to know more, you can go and look it up more in depth on the Internet. It really does simplify your life when you want to quickly know what's going on around you. I'm not sure if it is going to completely replace newspapers, but for me it did. Also, the app has an excellent design and feels very intuitive. Good job Yahoo! And Nick 😜
