With a bit of flair, Yahoo News Digest dials down its mountain of news coverage to find the top articles and deliver them to your iPhone as rich, twice-daily bulletins. Much like its weather app, Yahoo! has crafted a delightfully simple interface that lets you read and navigate articles with ease. Each digest (delivered at 8am and 6pm ET) presents around 10 stories from a variety of subjects.
With 24-hour news cycles bombarding our eyes with headlines every second, it can be overwhelming to try and keep up with the main news of the day, let alone digesting it beyond a scrolling headline or RSS link. Wouldn't it be nice if someone would just summarize it all for us in small bites that still left us satisfied? The aptly-named Summly tries its best to do just that. With a Neuro-Linguistics Programming and Artificial Intelligence-powered algorithm (seriously), Summly peruses a plethora of sources to curate 400-character summaries of the day's hottest stories that fit neatly on the iPhone screen, without needing to scroll.
