    "Just what you need to know"

    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.

    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.

    The best news app there ever was. It is a shame to see it go. Lesson to Verizon and Yahoo, if it is not broken, DO NOT fix it! Period!

    I've used the app for over a year. Dissapointed to see it's closing down. I guess things changed when Verizon bought Yahoo. It's pretty sad when a company decides to close a service that lots of people loved.
