Yahoo’s New iOS App Includes Summly News Summaries

Yahoo introduced a new iOS app which includes Summly news summaries, short blurbs with the most important facts about current news stories.

The new app lets users personalize their news feeds so that they can have a more personalized reading experience. Users can decide which categories and keywords they would like to see news stories about and those they’d like to skip. For example, users can select to see less stories about specific people or subjects. Yahoo has also revamped its web search experience and now includes images and videos in searches.

The new app comes a month after the tech giant acquired the startup Summly. In March, Yahoo purchased Summly, from its founder Nick D’Aloisio, a British teenager who created the app. D’Aloisio joined the Yahoo team as part of the deal.
