The 8 top stories from around the web, updated twice a day

Yahoo News Digest takes the ocean of the internet and chomps it up into digestible little pieces, offering them to you akin to a plate of exquisite hors d'oeuvres twice daily. Each update consists of eight stories that are deemed the most important of what's going on right now, with information gleaned from news sources, social media, and even Wikipedia. It's a supremely digestible way to keep abreast of what's going on, and the visual design is simply clean and beautiful. It's a very easy news app to use for the casual folk who just want to be able to keep up with water cooler conversation.

Developer's original description available here
Get in the know in no time.

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, 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. Our goal is to inform you of all the key headlines you need to know and allow you to share the news with others.

We are committed to building the best mobile experience and are interested in your feedback.

    I really think Yahoo has got the formula and the focus just right. It looks fresh and visually appealing, but the story detail still at the centre and it's easy to vary reading order as you would with a broadsheet. The inline details are very well thought out and having "extra news" at the end helps at content like the inner pages of a newspaper. A great approach and layout - please don't lose tha
