Yahoo News Digest Now Available Worldwide for both iOS and Android Users

Yahoo News Digest today goes global. This fresh news service of Yahoo gives users a complete view of top news and information in the shortest amount of time. Back in January 2014, Yahoo first launched its News Digest service only for the iOS users in the United States and United Kingdom.

Yahoo said that it receives and "overwhelming response, with 40% of those who downloaded the app coming back to it on a daily basis." And this good response encouraged search giant to bring this fresh news experience to more people worldwide. 

That is why, Yahoo today launched an Android version of its News Digest service along with exiting iOS version. Yahoo News Digest's fresh Android version has a new homescreen widget that will make it easier for reader to view what they have already read with most recent unread digest.

Yahoo News Digest's new widget will keep track of already read digests by counting it down. The new Android app will show the same count down until the arrival of next digest.

"Every morning and night, Yahoo News Digest delivers a summarized version of the top 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 to “digest” the news quickly," states Yahoo in an official blog.

Along with launch of an Android version, search giant also launched two new editions, a Canadian and an International edition, of its News Digest service beyond the existing US and UK editions.

With the launch of an International edition in English, Yahoo News Digest goes global as it is now available for on both iOS and Android devices worldwide.

Yahoo also launched a new Canadian edition for both of its iOS and Android users in Canada to see the most locally relevant stories. Yahoo News Digest service is already available in UK and US, but now Android users can also enjoy its UK and US editions.

Yahoo users in all these three countries can not only enjoy  their local editions but they can also access the International edition as well to see global news.

Yahoo editors in UK, US, and Malaysia are compiling its International edition in English to offer upadtes 24/7. And Yahoo will also deliver a timely Digest at 8am and 6pm local time, wherever its users are in the world.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
