    Digg's review

    Published: 2013-12-31, by Manu Galvez.

    Digg is a content-curated reader that delivers what's hot on the Internet

    • User-friendly interface
    • Import your own sources: OPML or add them manually
    • "Digg" posts to make them popular
    • Reader should be more customizable: theme, grid view...
    • No gestures to mark posts as read support

    "Most talked-about stories on the Internet"

    Services like Digg help us keep up-to-date about what's hot on the Internet every single day. It merges social knowledge with editor's curation expertise to deliver interesting content in any form media can take: videos, photos, websites or text articles.

    But Digg isn't only a front-page of curated content. It's also a reader where you can import your sources (via OPML file or by adding sources manually) and use the web or the app to read them. Actually, that's the keystone of the social component of Digg. Users can "digg" posts which is something like "thumb up" or "like" them. The amount of "digg" provides the way Digg editors discover what's hot everyday on the Internet.

    Besides "digging" temperature, Digg editors make their own selection of articles based on their own criteria of what's appealing.

    If you are looking for a well-designed, smooth and intuitive news reader for your own sources, you should give a go to Digg. If you don't have your own sources set and just want to know what's hot everyday on the Internet, you should definitely have Digg installed on your mobile device. Highly recommended.
