Yahoo has designed the news app to provide simplified, effortless, comprehensive, and complete news reading service, Yahoo explains a little more about their new Yahoo News Digest app:

“We’ve taken summarization to the next level with News Digest, by algorithmically and editorially selecting the important articles and using multi-document summarization to identify the key ‘bits and pieces of information’.

We’ve named these bits and pieces “Atoms.” Our Atoms assembled from around the web include articles, maps, infographics, Wikipedia extracts, videos, photos and more. Stories contain different atomic units which convey different dimensions of the story from the who, what, when, how, and why of a topic.”
