During the CES 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January of this year Yahoo launched it new Yahoo News Digest iOS app which has been created to provide users with a summary of news articles.
Now Yahoo has announced that the Yahoo News Digest UK Edition iOS app has launched for iPhone and iPod touch offering all the top news for a UK audience twice a day.
“Our Digests provide a definitive summary of all the need-to-know news so you can stay on top of what’s happening. To help you get informed quickly, our stories are generated from multiple sources and are assembled from essential ‘bits and pieces’ of information which we call “atoms”.
The atomic units aren’t all text and include maps, infographics, stock tickers, Wikipedia extracts, videos, photos, quotes and more. We’ve just launched two new atoms in this version; weather and statistics. The digest itself is algorithmically produced but editorially curated demonstrating the perfect blend of technology and journalism.
Getting the news in the morning and evening has been a daily habit since the invention of the printing press. So has reading a newspaper from front to back page. We wanted Yahoo News Digest to bring back that sense of completion and conclusiveness. When you get to that last page, you can put the newspaper down knowing you are ‘in the know’.”
Check out the video below to learn more about the new Yahoo News Digest app and jump over to the iTunes app store to download. At the moment no information or release date had been announced for Android users.
