    Yahoo! has launched the news aggregation and summary app ‘News Digest’ for iOS users, which represents another shift to mobile under Marissa Meyer’s helm. Yahoo News Digest learns what users read and shapes the content to follow these trends. Yahoo’s product manager for mobile and emerging products Nick D’Aloisio said the following:

    Before joining Yahoo, D’Aloisio founded Summly, a summarization and artificial intelligence technology used in a corresponding app. Yahoo purchased the start-up last year and has apparently incorporated some of these technologies in the fresh News Digest app. Here’s how the app is described in the iTunes store:

    Yahoo News Digest can be downloaded for free from the iTunes Store and has a size of 11.0 MB. It is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch but requires iOS 7.0 or later to function. Judging by the ratings it has received so far, it is expected to enjoy the same popularity like the acclaimed Weather app.

      After trying Yahoo's weather app, which I like very much, I'm going to give this a shot! I think Marissa may be bringing Yahoo back from the dead (for me, at least!).

      I tried looking for it and it doesn't appear in the Canadian AppStore.:(

      I checked from my iPhone, so I would have seen it if it was in the Canadian AppStore.
