Yahoo is getting pretty aggressive in the iOS world. Last year, it topped the Apple weather app with one that was prettier and more useful. Apple even responded by using similar elements in iOS 7.
Now, Yahoo is getting serious about news with a new app called Yahoo News Digest, which provides a summary of top news stories. The content is updated twice daily. Each story consists of an original summary, plus several "Atoms," or key quotes, images, videos, Wikipedia excerpts and other material relevant to the story. The idea is to give you more information than the typical wire service story or single-sourced report.
For example, in a story on App Store sales, the app provided a good summary of the story, a relevant video and references to Associated Press, Reuters and other web links, as well as a little background on Apple.
Visually, it's a unique-looking app. You scroll up for more info. You scroll to the left to get the next story, to the right to see the previous one.
