Editors' Review

by   / August 04, 2014

Yahoo News Digest updates twice a day with a rundown of the major news stories from around the world, drawn from various sources. Both updates include about seven to ten headlines with detailed summaries and links to more information on the topic covered.

Pros

Concise information: This app provides the best kind of news for people on the go. It lets you read an informative summary of the story, and then if you'd like to know more, you can follow one of several included links. There are also Twitter posts at the bottom of each story, so you can see what notable people were saying about the event as it unfolded.

Update notifications: Unlike many other news services that update and rotate their main stories constantly, Yahoo News Digest only delivers new stories twice a day, at 8a.m. and 6p.m. local time. You'll receive a notification each time a new update is available as well, so you don't have to worry about missing something important if you don't check back constantly.

Cons

Font sizes: There is no option to adjust the size of the font in this program. While the font isn't tiny, it could pose a challenge for some people to read.

Bottom Line

Yahoo News Digest is a convenient and innovative way to get the news. The stories it presents in each update are drawn from all over the world and cover a wide range of topics. The app is free, and you can share stories directly from it to Twitter or Facebook, or via email.
