Yahoo News Digest - Review

Yahoo Brings a clean looking news app to both #Android and #iOS

Yahoo News Digest
Developer: Yahoo
Genre: New / Magazine
Platform: Android, iOS

Product Description 
"Yahoo News Digest provides a definitive summary of all the important, need-to-know news. Digests are delivered twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening. All the top stories are summarized and presented with the key information that you need to stay on top of what’s happening.
Each story is created from multiple sources to present the essential bits and pieces of information, known as “atoms”. Atoms are key quotes, images, videos, maps, infographs, and Wikipedia excerpts among others. These atomic units provide a unique context to the news. Our stories are both algorithmically and hand curated to ensure high quality, and come with a textual summary."- via Google Play

What is it
Yahoo digest is a news application developed by Yahoo. By default the app will deliver you news in the morning and in the evening.  

What's the big deal
The UI is what most other news should be taking pointers from.

What's hot
- UI
- Cool Simon like game in the settings
- Concept

What's not
- Article sources are not customizable
- Notification and navigation bars aren't transparent

Final thoughts
Okay so I like this app but I find it hard to take seriously without the ability to customize the sources. Granted it's not exactly a rss reader app but, you can't even customize the subject of news you will receive. Hopefully Yahoo decides to open  up the app a bit more so those who like to customize their news can enjoy it more.
