Yahoo News Digest has gone global

Yahoo News Digest

Yahoo’s News Digest iOS app isn’t just gorgeous, it’s a great time saver, too. For those unfamiliar with Digest, it uses Yahoo-owned Summly technology and algorithmic and human editorial curation to aggregate and summarize the day’s most important topics from a variety of trusted sources and premium media outlets.

With your news delivered twice a day, it’s a great way to start your day in the morning and wind down in the evening, without spending too much time catching up on the most important news.

The catch? The news it serves focuses on U.S. and UK markets. But not anymore: as of today, the new version of the app serves news globally, with both international and Canadian editions of the Digest now available…
