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
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.
Yahoo News Digest is available in English today but look out for translated versions soon.
We are committed to building the best mobile experience and are interested in your feedback.

Just Updated It And Its Crashing :(
Concise and timely. Just need an Indian edition and it will be truly 5 stars
A great way to get the news in a small digestible form. I just wish that sharing the story shared a link to the story and not just a link to the app. Pretty shameless.
A compact way to read news, well done
Love the greetings to notify me that my news digest is ready, love the Did you know feature at the end of reading as well, very informative. Keep up the good work Yahoo.
Messed up my account.
Amazingly useful and elegantly designed.
