In today’s busy world it’s hard to find time to keep current on the top news stories. When you do (finally) find time to open your favorite news app, it can be hard to navigate a maze of stories. Yahoo has found a solution to this problem – News Digest. News Digest is a simple app that delivers news to you twice per day, at times you specify.
Here’s the best part – you won’t be getting lost in a swamp of news stories you don’t really want to read. News Digest is curated by Yahoo and contains about ten of the top stories from the day. This keeps you honest about how much news you’re actually reading. Don’t worry though, if you really need your news fix then you can go to the “more” section and catch some extra stories that may not have made the top ten cut. Also, every Sunday there is a Katie Couric news video wrapping up the week. I’ve never found it to be worthwhile, but it’s a nice bonus if you’re into that kind of thing. The final little feature the app offers is a “Thought for the Day.” This is usually a quote or a fact, nothing in depth, just a way to wrap up your news reading.
That’s all there really is to say about News Digest. It’s a refreshingly simple news app that gets away from the over-saturation that usually comes with the news these days. If you’re a busy person or are simply tired of too much news, this is the app for you. You can get it for free in the App Store here.
