Yahoo News Digest is a new app from Yahoo in collaboration with the team behind Summly, which Yahoo purchased last year, to show you a digest of the day’s news stories twice a day.
It is excellent.
Summarization is only one part. Tweets, graphs, videos, etc. round out a great way to look at a news story. The app is currently amazingly well rated on the App Store.
I think this Nick D‘Aloisio kid knows what he is doing. Two days ago David Pogue interviewed him at CES in place of Biz Stone due to a family emergency. The first few seconds of the video are pretty painful and awkward given both of their relationship with Yahoo. But the interview is actually pretty good.
