Who's got time for news? No one, that's who. Yahoo News Digest, as its name suggests, digests long news articles (from various news sources, not only Yahoo) and presents you the important bits. It's also good-looking, with modern, sleek lines and poppy colours. With its bite-sized news and gorgeous design, this app was made for our short attention spans and penchant for shiny things.

This app delivers the 8 to 10 most important stories of the day to you. You'll get a morning edition (at 8 am) and an evening edition (at 6 pm) to update you on the news. Mostly replaced my RSS reader , as my days are busy right now and this makes it easy to stay informed without spending too much time browsing through feeds.

One of my new favourites for viewing news. I wouldn't put it in here normally, seeing as it is a news reader, but it has a social aspect to it. First of all, sharing the article, which is simple and not new. But for every news article you read, in addition to providing background info, like Wikipedia pages, you get a Twitter feed relating to the news article you are currently reading. And that my friends, why Yahoo News Digest is here. And all the additional candy you get for every article is why I love it.
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.
