Yahoo has announced the launch of International edition of Yahoo News Digest for both iOS and Android users in India. With this app, users can stay on top of all the need-to-know International news, twice a day, on their mobile phones.

 

Every morning and night, Yahoo News Digest will deliver a summarized version of the top International news, in an easy-to-navigate design. Using algorithmic and human editorial curation, each story is a collection of “atoms” — articles, maps, Wikipedia entries, videos, and photos — that make it easy for users to “digest” the news quickly. The “Digests” provide a definitive summary of all the top International news so that users can stay on top of what’s happening in the world.

 

The app covers stories from important news categories like – News, Technology, Sports, Business, World etc. Users can scan the summary, as well as read “Atoms,” which convey different dimensions of the story from the who, what, when, how, and why of a topic.

 

The Android version of the Yahoo News Digest is built specifically with a new homescreen widget that will display the most recent unread digest for easy viewing. Unlike other homescreen widgets, the Yahoo News Digest widget keeps track of the digests that have been read.

 

Yahoo News Digest will use the Summly technology, acquired by Yahoo last year.
